TAGplorations November challenge reveal

Hello everyone, new month means it´s time for a new TAGplorations challenge!! This month´s challenge is all about GRATITUDE!

You are asked to create a project featuring a tag around the theme of giving thanks. As an optional twist you can use POLKA DOTS.

Here is what I did:

I´ve chosen to use totally different colors on this months tag, rather than taking typical fall colors out to play. I really like the strong contrast the Distress Paints created!!! The tag is created using Distress Paints on their own on the background and also with a stencil. I also used the stencil both ways, first dabbing the paint thru the stencil onto the background, then flipping it around to brayer the residue paint onto the other side of tag. This creates a really interesting look using both positive and negative sides.

Step 1: Take a piece of white cardstock, die cut with the nesting tag die cut die and apply three shades of Distress Paint onto a working surface. Apply a few spritz of water on top and dab and pull the color onto the tag.  Let dry.

Step 2: Take a dark green Distress Paint tone and the Dots all Over stencil and dabb the Distress Paint onto the tag thru the stencil. Next turn the stencil with the residue wet paint are around towards the tag and press the paint (using a brayer) onto the tag. Lift the stencil off and let dry.

Step 3: Stamp birds and sentiments with black ink using the For the Birds – June 2017 stamp set. Outline the birds with white gel pen. Decorate with polka dotted washi tape and a pink misted white resin flower. Add a pink ribbon to finish the tag.
