Today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary to
the love of my life: Raymond and inspired
by the November tag by Tim Holtz
I made this tag my Anniversary tag:
Thank you, my dear, for
15 wonderful years
I want to share with you how I made this tag:
Things I used:
corrugated card board
distress paint and spray
versamark, clear embossing powder
Michael Strong heart stamp
I started with stamping the heart stamp on the tag
with versamark and adding clear embossing powder.
Then heating it with the heatgun.
On apiece of scrap paper (larger then the tag) I stamped
the heart stamp in red. This way I could see the lines well
and cut out the heart.
The open heart was laid over the stamped tag for
the placement of the heart and I cut the scrap paper
exactly the size of the tag.Now i put it on the corrugated
bord and after tracing the heart with a pencil,
I cut out the heart in the board.
Now to color the tag with the direct to paper technique.
Adding color on my craft sheet and spraying it with water,
the palette is ready for coloring.
Put the tag face down on the craft sheet to add the color.
You need to do this a few times for a complete
covering of the tag.
Tag ready for the next step.
Corrugated card bord is next to
get ready by starting to tear some of the
paper of the tag.
Coloring the board with festive berries on top
and around the tag.
Finishing it of with red and gold distress spray.
When tag and board are completely dre I glued
them together and decorated the tag
with the ticket, the numbered paper clips,
an arrow and some red tinsel twine.
On top a red ribbon and a clock for I hope
we will have lots more time together!
Thanks for looking!
Have a creative day!
