Good Morning, crafters!
Yes, its time for another fun tutorial! 🙂 This tutorial is a part of PPS’s Tutorial Mondays! Do stay tuned to the PPS blog as this month on we’ll have a lot of new and fun projects coming up with not one.. not two.. but three new designers joining the team!!
So getting on to my project.. I had bought a decoupage medium from an art store not very long ago.. and have been wanting to give it a go! If you wanna know how I used it.. do scroll down and check the tutorial out.. 🙂
How pretty is my cute little LOVE tag?!
Now.. lets get started with the tutorial
I used the Inkssentials Surfaces Manila Craft Tag for this project. This particular one in the size #8.
And I’ve used this MME stamp set from Miss Caroline Story collection for this tag. How pretty is this stamp set?!!
I used my new stamp pad for this project.. the Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Butter Bar mid-tone. I think this color really compliments the soft color of the tag.
I stamped the flower on to the bottom of the tag overlapping each other using the masking technique. What I did was, I stamped the image onto a masking tape.. cut out the shape.. and then placed it on an already stamped flower… Later.. I went ahead and stamped another flower overlapping it.. Its one of my favorite techniques!
I then fuzzy cut the bottom of the tag..
I also randomly stamped little flowers on the tag, from the same stamp set.
Now.. lets get on to the FUN part! 🙂
I used the Daler and Rowney decoupage medium and some yellow wool felt to create a rough and glossy texture to the tag. This particular medium dries glossy which gives the tag a very pretty finish.
(sorry for the messy hands!! :P)
I first brushed enough decoupage medium on to the tag and then randomly spread and placed the wool felt on top.. Later I put another coat of the medium on top of the wool. Since the Inkssentials Surfaces Manila Craft Tag is pretty tough and heavyweight it stands up to all wet techniques and does not leave behind bubbles.. which is why I just love this craft tag! 🙂
Give it enough time to dry.. I used my heat tool to help the medium dry quick.
I stamped the same flowers and fussy cut them to give my card a three dimensional effect.
Howzzat look?? 🙂 Am liking it so far..
The swirls again are from the same stamp set that I stamped and fussy cut.
Add some pearls and a sentiment.. and there you go.. my tag is ready!
Easy peasy, eh! 🙂
I hope you like this fun tutorial.. if you do then do drop in some love in the comments below.
