This “Window Sheet Distressed Tag with Flowers” combines a bunch of challenges. One of them was to use something “Clear” so I used Tag Framelits to cut out a piece of Window Sheet for the large Tag. The others were dies and distress, a tag, homemade flowers and hand dyed ribbon, something made from scratch, something clear and summer colors with a “bloom.” That originally seemed like a bunch of random ideas but somehow it actually made it easier to create. 😉
I used Sizzix Tag Collection Framelits to cut out a Small Tag from a Manila Tag and a Large Clear Tag from a Window Sheet.
I used Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Barn Door Distress Stains to create the background of the manila tag and then used the Spritz and Flick Technique.
I cut Grungeboard with the Trellis Die and painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint and then lightly sanded the edges and the top. Next, I sponged Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on the sides and lightly on the top.
I cut 4 “pinecones” and 2 “greens” from the Tattered Pinecones Die using SU! Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Garden Green Cardstocks. Next, I sponged the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I rolled the spiral cut card stock to form the flowers and adhered them together with Glue Dots.
I sponged onto the Manila Tag through the TH Latticework Stencil with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and through the Faded Dots Stencil with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I used a Script Stamp to stamp onto the Trellis Grungeboard pieces with Black Archival Ink. The Grungeboard Trellis was attached to the tags using Crystal Effects or Glossy Accents. (Cut apart and reassemble as necessary.)
The Quote from the TH Visual Artistry Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set was stamped onto the Manila Tag with Black Archival Ink.
Distress Stains (Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Mustard Seed) were used to dye Crinkle Ribbon. I attached a Muse Token to a Jump Ring and then attached that to an Idea-ology Pin. The pin was pierced through the ribbon and secured to the tag using Glue Dots.
I cut the Greenery apart and attached it to the tag (bottom and top). I attached the flowers to the front of the tag using hot glue. A Glitter Brush was brushed across the edges of the flowers.
