artful paper

I made some tags to go into my mini albums and such. These are pretty straight forward and easy to create but they do end up being super nice. To create the tag I used the Tim Holtz tag die - using one as a template and cutting the rest out so I didn't have the hole at the top.

For the stamps I used a variety from Tim Holtz. The music notes are a stamp from KaiserCraft and the journal box on the back of the tag is from KaiserCraft as well. I used a faux paper torn edge look on the back of the tag, that technique from a youtube tutorial I think on the channel by aweeziechic? I'll get back to the correct channel once I remember.

The tags are created using a resist technique. First use versamark embossing ink then I used a holographic embossing powder, which makes the tags very shimmery. I then used momento dew drop inks in Pear tart. Lilac Posies Danube blue. I inked it up lightly at first then gradually building up the color. Finally the music notes stamp was used in the same inks.

Lastly, I also made a card using one of my photographs. The stamp is by tim holtz and the paper is KaiserCraft. the flower die is Joy Crafts no: 6003/003 vintage flourishes and that cut out was embossing with an embossing folder: Swiss Dots. After I finished the card  I sprayed it with some homemade glimmer mist which has a goldish shimmer. Nothing new was brought I am using what I have in my stash.
