Present tags with Sketchy Flowers #3 using embossing powders and watercolors

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here with two present tags using the Sketchy Flowers #3 stamp set with embossing powders and watercolors. I wanted to create cute present tags with kraft cardstock and pastel tones for springtime.

I first stamped the big flower image from the Sketchy Flowers #3 stamp set onto one side of the tag with embossing ink and applied three tones of embossing ink onto the image (see the full video tutorial at the end of this post). I used light blue, yellow and white on the first tag and light pink, light blue and yellow on the second. To add more interest to the background, I took white watercolor and a wet paint brush to add splatters.

Next I fussy cut a piece of gelli printed paper (see my previous posts for the tutorial) as a border and combined it with a cute ribbon. After that I painted a piece of watercolor paper with similar colors like the previously used embossing powders. I added a heat embossed flower image onto the paper, fussy cut them and then assemblied the tags. For finishing touches I used sentiments from the said stamp set with grey stamp ink on the residue watercolor paper left over from the flowers and adhered them onto place. And here is the video step-by-step tutorial:

I hope I could inspire you to create some fun tags!! You don´t have to use them for presents, you could create a few in bulk and use them in art journals, on cards as a focal point or add them into a frame as wall art for example.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
