TEXTURE - Live your life...

Well, this month hasn't quite gone to plan, but I am back and I hope I can squeeze a couple more TEXTURE Tags in before the end of the month.

This one feels perfect for today a beautiful bright summery tag

For this one I started with a Kraft Tag and a selection of Distress Oxides

And colour the tag, a third in each colour

Then using the Splat stamp, spritz the stamp with water then stamp onto the tag and remove the excess water with kitchen roll, to create a faux bleaching effect. Do this randomly over the tag.

Making sure the stamp is dry ink it up in the palest colour and stamp it again randomly over the tag.

Then repeat this with the other two colours until you are happy with the tag.

Onto some spare white card I stamped a number of the Solid mini funky Flowers Foliage and Violet stamps, using Distress Oxides.

I then stamped the outlines in a deeper Versafine colour.

I then cut these out.

Next I stamped "Live your Life" stamp in Versafine Black in and trimmed a piece of white card to fit.

 I cut a piece of black card just slightly bigger than the sentiment then arranged the sentiment and flowers onto my tag.

I though the tag looked a little odd so added a couple of the small sketch lines to balance it, I stamped these in Vintage Sepia Versafine.

I then stuck everything down and chose a ribbon, I chose a yellow organza ribbon and distressed it using some Distress Oxides. And finally I added a couple of pearls to the centre of the flowers.
