Fall Tag by Irit Shalom

Product List
Tag:craft shop,paper: ,Graphic 45,Basic grey,
chipboard:Tando creaive,stamps:Inkadinkado, Hero Arts,leaves:Prima, inks: Ranger, Colorbox, embossing powder:other,bling:MM,die:Spellbinders,ribbons, music paper, tassel:other

Step 1: Making a background
Use a white tag, non sticky mat, some Ranger distress inks and a water mist.
Add 3-4 fall colors of inks over your non sticky mat, spray some water and rub your tag all over it. Let it dry for a while.

Here is your finished background
Step 2: Stamping over your painted tag
Take some stamps and stamp them over your painted tag with a brown ink-
I used a distress ink, but your can use any kind of die ink too.
Distress the tag edges and ink them as well.Remember only the small part of your background will be visible on your finished tag- so there is no right or wrong or making mistakes here.

Step 3: Stamping the sentiment
Fot the main " fall" sentiment I stamped the Hero arts stamp over the Basis grey paper with black Colorbox pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Than I die cut it with Spellbinders Label 1 die and inked the edges with green distress ink

Step 4: Making a chipboard accent
To frame the word " Fall" I used Tando creative flourish white frame inked with green distress ink, heavily heat embossed with clear embossing powder and on the hottest point of it I pressed a hardware plastic piece shown here over the hot chipboard to make an impression in the hot powder.
Then I slightly inked the chipboard again with the green ink and let it dry

Step 5: Collage all your findings
This final step is pure up to you- this is a reason I am not going to show the collaging of the elements here- just a finished project.
I used a piece of Graphic 45 fall paper, some vintage music paper, my stamped sentiment and embossed chipboard frame and then added some Prima fall leaves
(you can cut or punch your own too).
For the final touch some orange crystals were added and I did a bow with 2 ribbons and reusued tassel.
Here is my finished tag again- thanks for reading and try to make your own one
