I love to have a stash of tags available to give for birthdays or to send to friends with a meaningful sentiment on them.
I also love dragonflies, so this week, I have teamed them up together and created this tag for you. I hope you enjoy!
I started by applying some crackle paste randomly through a stencil with a plastic palette knife. Depending on how thickly you apply the paste, it can take anywhere from between half an hour to a couple of hours to dry and crackle nicely. I left this one overnight.
I then spritzed the card with water and sprinkled some sea green brusho powder over it. I spritzed it with more water to ensure that it covered the tag well.
I then applied distress oxides through a stencil with my blending sponges. Here I used the colour 'frayed burlap'.
I selected a different stencil and applied 'lucky clover' distress ink over the top of the previous stenciling to give extra depth.
I stamped my favourite dragonfly stamp using versafine onyx black and blended a little of the 'frayed burlap' distress ink around the edges to bring the design together. I snipped the sides at the top of the tag and made a hole in the centre at the top through which I tied two co-ordinating ribbons.
I hope you enoyed this little tutorial and I hope that you will make some too.
