Life is Wonderful Tag Video Tutorial

Hi there,

I have another Video Tutorial over at the STAMPplorations Blog for you today:

  • prepare a watercolor paper tag with an anti-static powder tool and trace some of the flowers of the ARTplorations Big Bloom Factory Large stencil with a Versamarker
  • heat-emboss the flowers with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • stamp two additional flowers from the new STAMPlorations Big Bloom Factory stamp set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder as well
  • spray the tag with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (S.W.A.K.) and Prima Marketing Color Bloom Spray (Iris, Summer Sky)
  • spray some more Color Bloom Spray (Summer Sky) onto the tag and let it drip down
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke)
  • use one of the Tim Holtz Mixed Media Elements dies to cut out a pattern at the top right corner, cut the tag again from patterned paper from the Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics 6x6 paper pad and glue it behind the main tag
  • cut the CottageCutz Cherry Blossom Branch from vellum and one of the Tattered Lace Tuck in Flowers and the flower from the Concord & 9th Floral and Flutter die set from a strip of watercolor paper sprayed with the same colors - enhance the purples with Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) and the blues with Distress Ink (Stormy Sky)
  • adhere a strip of wood veneer to the tag
  • ink up the edges of three little paper roses with Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) as well
  • before adhering all the elements to the tag with hot glue, add some splatters with watered-down Distress Ink (Picket Fence)
  • dye a piece of seam binding with the Distress Ink colors previously used on the tag
  • use a sticker from the Ideaology Small Talk Sticker set as the sentiment - ink up its edges with Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) to match the rest of the project
