Tag It Thursday... GIU Day 4
I love how my tag turned out... I'm a complete nature freak so you see that in a lot of what I make. I used one of my freebies that came in a Unity Stamp order... The Tags! I love these tags and I thought what better thing to use than something I got from the company itsself?!
This Tag features Unity Stamp Co. Sets from Donna Downey called Imagine It (Flourish) and Empowered Words (Sentiment)
Working with the large tag: First thing I did was find my Chicken Wire Mask and Coarse Texture Gel, using my fingers on one had to hold the mask in place and other index finger I spread the Coarse Texture Gel across the Tag. Next I used a craft gun to heat dry the Gel, it will be hard & very rough when dry.
After that I grabbed my Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Broken China, Wild Honey & Peeled Paint to make a few swipes across the card surface and the Gel, next I sprayed a fine mist of water & used a paper towel to dab dry. Then I got out my Staz-On in Timber Brown and dragged it lightly across the dried Gel. Using the large flourish from Imagine It & stamped it onto the top and bottom of the tag using Memento in Rich Cocoa.
Working with the small tag: using Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Broken China & Wild Honey, again I just swiped them across the tag then spritzed it with water and dabbed it dry with a paper towel. Using Memento in Rich Cocoa I stamped the sentiment from Empowered Words. I cut about a foot of the three colors of twine from The Twinery, folded them in half & ran them thru the hold in the tag then knotted the ends and gave them a trim so they were all different lengths. Last using Glossy Accents I attached a piece of an UmWowStudio Spooky Branch to finish it off.
Back to the large tag: to finish it all off, using Glossy Accents again, I attached the UmWowStudio Swallow to the top of the card... making sure I got one of the yellow pieces of twine under the beak area. Under the small tag, I placed three short strips of foam tape and attached it on the dried Gel area. Last I found a organdy ribbon from CloseToMyHeart to tie off the top of the large tag.
