Tag created using distressing, stamping and embossing techniques

 Hi Friends

I am here today with my creation for the month and a detailed tutorial on the same.

Continuing the theme for the month – Stamping and Distressing, I have used various techniques of both of these to create a Gift Tag.

I would be dividing my tutorial in 3 parts – (a) Background, (b) Stamping and (c) Embellishing

Background : First I took a plain card stock and used distress ink to create hues of color across the tag (used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink-- squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, broken china, peeled paint) using distress tool for blending inks. The colored tag is then de-embossed to create a nice embossed effect.( Spellbinders-M-bossilities folder- Graden Delight ) using Big Shot Machine

Stamping : The Tag is then stamped with inkadinkado stamp using a contrasting and darker color ink. The stamp would thence also highlight the embossing while also giving a nice chic look to the Tag background.

Embellishing : For finalization of tag design, mulberry flowers are pasted around the main message board which is “Heartfelt Wishes” in this case. Some additional embellishment like a key, hang ribbon etc. can be used as per your design compatibility.

For more information on this creation and any query, please feel free to ask.
