Hello, crafty friends! Happy Tuesday to you! Today I’m here to share my last project that I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2 reveal. This time, I have another art tag to show that features the beautiful new cover plate background die, Folk Flowers.
If you popped in a couple of weeks ago, you may have seen the companion tag that I made in a very similar style. Whereas that tag used the Folk Flowers die as a stencil, adding Distress Grit Paste and Distress Embossing Glaze to create a raised surface… this time I layered the die cut panel onto a tag base to create recessed areas with all those negative cut outs. It’s another way to use a large background die to give a totally different look to the finished project.
Here in the close-up shot you can catch a better view of the recessed pattern. I used a Distress Embossing Pen to add embossing medium to the inside of each cut-out opening, and then filled the recessions with Distress Embossing Glaze. Once heated, the tag looks like it was enameled, like stained glass. It’s such a pretty technique, and so easy, too.
The top of the tag was smeared with a bit of Distress Grit Paste to give it an aged appearance and Distress Crayon was added to bring out the texture. I love how old and grungy it looks, like this tag has been around for a long, long time. I added leaf sprigs that are from the Funky Nature die set from Chapter 1. More lace and scallops and ribbon. The metal is an Idea-ology Quote Band.
Art tags are always great all on their own, but I added mine to a simple kraft gift bag for gift giving. Remove the clip at the top, and the tag comes right off and becomes part of the gift. I love two-fer projects like that.
That’s a wrap for my Chapter 2 projects from the YouTube Live reveal. In case you missed my other Folk Flowers art tag, you can see that HERE. Thanks so much for stopping by!
