Nature themed tags
Back with the tags, then. The first one uses Tims Papillon rubber stamp set onto a tag sponged with Sunshine Yellow, Meadow, and Lettuce Adirondacks, with a touch of Sunset Orange. The Butterflies were stamped in Colourbox Silk Green Pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder.
The middle tag was sponged with Meadow, Cranberry,Sailboat blue & Sunset Orange. theDandelion heads are a Lavinia stamp, stamped in Versafine Black with Stickles Black Diamond added to the ends.The phrase is from a set by Hobby Arts.
A sparkly dragonfly finished it off.
Third tag, on the right, is again sponged with Adirondacks,Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange and a little Red Pepper. the trees are just the tops of a row of Pines by Stampscapes, coloured with Distress Markers in Forest Pine & a bit of Vintage Photo. The flock of birds is an Inkylicious stamp, a set that has a number of bird flocks and birds on it, and I used the same sentiment again.
The sparkly Dragonfly brad in the second tag started its life as a plain bright green brad, but it didn't go with the tag at all.So I dabbed it onto a Versamark pad, and dipped it into a sparkly Black Embossing powder, by WOW.
Heated it with the heat gun- hey presto, a cool sparkly dragonfly! The tool I'm holding it with is from Woodware,called Clip-it tools. Easy to hold the brad without getting covered in ink & powder, or burning my fingers. Which is a good point, let the brad cool before you touch it- not only does the embossing powder get hot, so does the brad.
I did this again with some more dragonflies, and a rather plain metal butterfly brad, and a gold sparkly embossing powder, and these turn up later on some more tags.
