Tag with wings and stenciling

Hello there and happy Friday! Today I´d like to share another tag with you. Here is what it looks like:

I started creating this tag the same way I had been experimenting with the SØSTRENE GRENE blending brush and my stencils previously – by adding ink with the blending brush thru the stencil onto the paper. This time I didn´t use as dark colours  as the first time, but kept just to the Salty Ocean tone.

Next I die cut the paper with the Mixed Scalloped & Straight Edge Rectangle Layering Die Set into several pieces. The I die cut a scallped edge piece from white cardstock to go with the inked pieces.

After that it was just adding, playing, layering and decorating the tag and it was done in no time. See, I used all kinds of bits and bobs I had created while I recorded the Glimmer Mist videos for Tattered Angels. See the velvet ribbon, it´s misted with Glimmer Mists (see the video here) and the wings. They are also misted with Glimmer Mists (see that video here). And the chipboard circle – also a misted piece (see that video here).  For finishing touches I added a wooden pearl, some twine and Nuvo Glitter Drops. I like this fun looking tag alot. And due to the light colours and the centerpiece design, it can be used to go with practically any type of present.

That´s all for today, lovelies. I´ll be sharing a condolence card on Monday. I find those the hardest ones to make.

Until then, happy weekend and happy crafting,

Fall themed tags

Hi there everyone and happy Monday! I recently bought make-up blending brushes from SØSTRENE GRENE and found them very useful as blending brushes for crafting! So I experimented a little :).

I took some Indian Gold and Burnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse out to play and applied them with the blending brush onto a piece of white cardstock. And the results I got! So smooth, even application and the brush glides on paper like a dream.

Here is one of the results from that playtime –  a set of fall themed tags:

For this tag I die cut the Burnished Bronze tinted piece with an oval die cut die from Tonic Studios. Then I die cut a tag – die by STAMPlorations and inked that with the same brush, but this time using Ocean Blue Distress Ink. For decoration I dug deep into my older stash and added some lovely Basic Grey stickers, some golden sequins (Tonic Studios) and faux stitching with a white pen. For decoration I also added some Harvest Moon Nuvo Glitter Accents onto the rose design here and there. 

For the second tag I first die cut it (same die by STAMPlorations), then placed a stencil onto the tag (my Trees 1 stencil) and applied a heavy coat of the Brusnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse with the blending brush onto the tag. I let that layer dry before I went over the complete tag surface again, this time applying only a soft layer of the same mousse. Now you can see the Trees 1 pattern hues on the background, but the pattern is much softer and blends into the background. I really like how it looks! 

Next I again added a Basic Grey sticker from my very old stash on top for decoration. Then added some sequins (Tonic Studios) and some Harvest Moon Glitter Accents here and there. The tag got finished off with a October Afternoon (old stash) sticker that was outlined with a black pen.

Too bad you cannot see the amazing shimmer of the tags – but you get the idea from the very first photo. It´s gorgeous and looks quite noble.

This is it for today, do come by on Wednesday for another Christmas Card Wednesday!
Happy crafting,
