Mixed Media tag tutorial

Resist tag technique tutorial
The resist technique is not new at all- but is always fabulous, so just try it
My recycling  trend was used here twice:for the straw from an old placemat and the flower made from a
very old Hebrew book.The glitter added was to give this tag a less mute look
Supply list
Tag: Craft store

Embossing powder: Ranger: Clear
Glitter glue:  Ranger

Step 1 
 Using white pigment ink and a clear acrylic stamp, stamp some flowers over a blank tag. Emboss it with a heat gun and clear embossing powder

Step 2 
Mix Distress inks, add some water mist and color your embossed tag all over. Then clean the white embossed areas with a paper towel

 Step 3
Stamp a background stamp all over the colored tag with Memento brown ink and Prima stamp

Step 4
Staple some straw pieces from an old placemat or add paper strips, as shown

Step 5
Punch or die cut scalloped circles from old book pages, crimple them and combine using a brad into multilayer flowers. Open the petals and use 3-D glue and glitter to get a 3-D opened look to your flower

Step 6 
Adhere the flower on the corner using some glue foam dot. Add Grungeboard swirl covered with glitter as shown. Tie the ribbon, add metal pins and enjoy your vintage tag
