I wanted to share a details post on how I created my Tag for our first Totally Tags N’ ATC’s Post. I am pretty excited about adding this post to our team line up. So let’s get started:
Here’s my tag.
Here’s a close up of the butterfly. It started as a plain white cardstock cut. I then added some Close To My Heart inks and Pearl Paint to give it that gorgeous shimmer.
Here’s a close up of the flowers and bow. I colored the charm with a Copic Marker (E39) and used some Dew drops for the center of the pink flower and around the tag. For my ribbon I used some organza ribbon for the bow. I also used some white acetate ribbon towards the top of this photo. I cut it into very thin strips and then curled it with my scissors. I then attached them so the would stay curled.
I didn’t take a picture, but the butterfly began as plain white cardstock cuts.
For the butterfly base layer I sponged some ink using my Crème Brulee Ink Pad on the inside and then my Blush Ink Pad on the outside. I set that aside.
Next I took my top layer cut and sponged ink using the following: Gypsy Ink Pad for the inside, Sky Ink Pad for the middle and then my Sweet Leaf Ink Pad for the outer edge.
Next, I added some of the fantastic CTMH Create a Shade Pearl Paint. In this photo you can see where I added the paint to the right side of the butterfly. I wanted to try and capture the difference in the piece that paint adds.
After I painted the top layer of the butterfly completely, I adhered it to the base.
Here’s a close up of the butterfly once again.
I cut my pieces out of plain white cardstock. I then stamped the petals with my Blush Ink and the Just For You CTMH Stamp set. I then staggered the petals together and assembled the flower.
Here you can see that I curled the petals to give the flower some dimension.
Once again, I cut all my pieces out of plain white cardstock. I then inked them with my Sky Ink Pad first and then with My Gypsy Ink Pad. This shot shows the progression. I then staggered and layered three petals and then curled the edges for dimension.
