dylsuions tag

Hi, its Carol here, and today I'm going to show you how to make this:-

Prepare your tag as per the instructions in my previous post - here I have used turquoise and red based dylusions ink sprays. Once dry, stamp background using sewing based stamps (available in store)

Using a Tim Holtz alterations die, sewing room, cut the body form from grungepaper - spritz inks onto a craft mat and drag the die cut thro' - I have done this several times to get the depth of colour I was after, if you want extra depth add further colour using distress inks.....take a piece of vintage ribbon and colour using the left over inks on your craft mat - dry.  Using a white pen, add hi-lights and definition to the shape.

Colour a piece of copy paper with yellow/orange based inks, dry - when completely dry, cut using the Tim Holtz Alterations die - tattered florals, and make into the flower shown.  Colour three pieces of trim with the same yellow/orange based inks.

Outline your tag with white pen and edge using a brown distress ink.

Tie your ribbon to the dress form, add a jump ring and some bling.  Adhere bling and pearls to the bottom of the tag, add the coloured flowered trim and then the rose...add a couple of beaded pins....

I hope you've like this little tutorial - if you make a tag along the same lines please post and share...
