Tag Team Time

 Hi!  The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Ave is sharing the tag love this time around!  I love tags ever since a certain someone (Linda) started inspiring me with her creations! 

I decided to play with one stencil and use it to layer different sizes and shapes of tags on a few different cards.  

My first card uses the stencil on multiple sized tags with lost shadow ink, white embossing powder, and versamark ink. 

I started by sponging the versamark ink over the white cardstock background and tags.  I repeated until the background/tags were covered with the pattern.  Next the ink was covered with white embossing powder.  (I could have left it with clear embossing powder but the white embossing powder also raises the image and adds more texture).  I heated up the embossing powder on all the pieces.  I then sponged the gray distress oxide ink over the embossed surface.  After I had finished sponging on the level of ink and depth of color, I buffed off the excess ink from the embossed surface.  (I call that the magic as the white really pops after you buff off the excess ink). 

Next the tags were mounted on white cardstock and all were layered over each other on the front of the card.   The sentiment was stamped on vellum and cut to fit on the side.  I accented with little gems. 

For my next card I mixed up my colors and simplified the background.

I started with using the picked raspberry distress oxide ink and the lost shadow ink to create a pattern on my tags.  I also used a scrap with a hole punched out of the tag.  I liked the idea and used it to place it and the sentiment artfully over a flower. 

I also used a watercolor pencil and a waterbrush to add a hint of pink to the grey background.

I hope this has you inspired to create tags and layer them!
