Linda here with a StepXStep to show you how I made my tag for Donna's Spingtime in Paris challenge. But before I get started I wanted to let you know that I decided to leave the Artistic Outpost stamps on Friday Focus for a second week. They will be 15% off through April 11th. I have some restocks and newly stocked plates coming in on Monday and wanted you all to have a chance to grab them at 15% off too.
On to the StepXStep...starting with one of the non-branded jumbo tags that I sell in the boutique, I embossed it with the Damask texture fade. I used one of the embossing diffusers to create a non-embossed oval to stamp on.
The texture fade only embosses 2/3rds of the tag, but no worries, I just run it through again to emboss the lower portion. A slight break in the embossing can be seen, but generally by the time I am finished with my layering and embellishing it is barely noticeable.
You can see that it didn't quite make it all the way around the oval, but no worries as I covered it up with a hand painted Venise lace appliqué. At this point, I sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo DI.The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I was a little short on seam binding so I just cut and glued it rather than wrapping it all the way around the tag.
