To celebrate Valentine's Day STAMPlorations are holding a week long celebration ... a Love TAGplorations blog hop. Today is Day 4 and I hope that my tag will inspire you to join in with the hop - you might even win a prize!
This is my tag ... very different to my usual CAS style.
First I stamped and white heat embossed a piece of card before spritzing with water and sprinkling with brushos ... this was the difficult bit for me as I didn't have any control over where the colour went!! I used my heat tool to dry the panel as I wanted to create some hard lines in the colour. Once the panel was dry I spread texture paste through a stencil but only in limited areas - I wanted the hearts to wrap around the die cut heart. The corrugated heart was left over from another project and was just what I needed to help create a cluster of elements to create a focal point. I machine stitched the corrugated heart onto the tag before die cutting the clustered heart die and 'love' sentiment lots of times!! I also adhered three small hearts from the clustered heart die that I had cut from another piece of brusho-ed card. Added some twine and ribbon and considered it complete.
