First I grabbed one of the jumbo manila tags that I sell in the shop and am so addicted to. Using Peacock Feathers DI and a mini ink blending tool, I applied the ink through the stencil on the bottom half of the tag. Then I misted the ink that was left on the stencil and applied it to the top part of the tag for a mono print. Love the way it looks with the positive and negative images. I thought it needed a little texture so I added some white Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through the same stencil on the bottom right corner of the tag. When it was good and dry, I applied Inka Gold Old Silver with a tiny paint brush. You should use your finger and sometimes I do, but I really wanted a delicate look and wanted to make sure I only got it on the raised embossing paste. I also used the Inka Gold Old Silver on the Spellbinders die cut in the upper left corner. It was cut from white CS and the Inka gold was applied with my finger. I glued it down with Multi Medium Matte.
My floral bouquet was made by cutting white CS with the Tattered Flowers decorative strip die and staining them with Shaded Lilac. I scrunched them around the end of a paintbrush when wet and let them dry in that shape. Once dry, I opened them very carefully and sponged the endues with Vintage Photo DI. The leaves were also cut with the same strip die, stained with Bundled Sage, edged with Vintage Photo ann then Inka Gold Old Silver was applied dry brush style.
My sentiment was stamped from Tim's Simple Sayings set using Peacock Feathers DI. My little banners were cut with the Ribbon Flags decorative strip die from white CS, sponged with Antique linen and a bit of Vintage photo and kissed with Wendy Vecchi's Script background stamp. Then I stamped Happy Birthday using Peacock Feathers and dipped it into clear embossing powder which stick randomly as some of the ink had dried (which was my intent).
The tag was topped with a triple loop bow made with seam binding and stained with Shaded Lilac distress stain.
