Hi!  Sharing today on The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Blog a few tags celebrating the idea of Frozen!  I decided to play with the Mica Stain Sprays in a frozen color palette. 

The tag was created using mica stain spray, ranger opaque distress texture paste and a layering stencil.

 To create the background: 

  1. Lay the stencil down on the white cardstock. 
  2. Smear the Opaque texture paste over the stencil. 
  3. Let the paste dry.  (I let it dry partially so the color blended into the paste) 
  4. Spray a mix of the frozen colors (blue and grey) over the surface and add spritzes of water to blend. 
  5. Dab off the excess or hold on the side to allow it to drip off. 
  6. Let dry completely. 
  7. To highlight the shimmer from the sprays an additional coat of clear embossing powder was added over the surface. 
  8. Sponge Versamark Ink over the surface. 
  9. Cover with clear embossing powder and shake off excess. 
  10. Heat up the embossing powder. 


 The clear embossing highlighted the richness of the mica stain and the shimmer from the stain sprays.  To finish the tag a layer of embellishments with some holiday sticker for the sentiment and a touch of flowery trim for the top.

 For the next tag an additional shimmer and iciness was built into the background of the tag. 

To create the background of the tag: 

  1. Stamp the snowflakes randomly across the surface using Versamark Watermark Ink. 
  2. Heat emboss the snowflakes with white or clear embossing powder. (If you use clear you will need to make sure not to spray too much shimmery spray as it can spread under the embossed snowflakes) 
  3. Spray the mica stain sprays onto a craft mat and add water. 
  4. Drag the stamped background across the inky mat.  
  5. Add more spray directly to tag to add more color. 
  6. Let the tag completely dry. 
  7. Cover the surface of the tag with versamark. 
  8. Heat emboss using clear embossing powder. 
  9. Repeat the process of the versamark and embossing powder multiple times. 
  10. During the final coat while the embossing powder is still liquid sprinkle on rock candy distress glitter. Heat set. 

  • After the tag dries you should be able to crack the surface by bending it slightly.  If it doesn't crack add another coat of versamark and embossing powder. 
    To finish the tag just add the snowflake accents and the paper doll image. 

    Thanks for stopping by!
