Hi. So this weekend I worked on some great creative pieces. One of these creative endeavors resulted in this very pretty tag. It is inspired by the beautiful, warm spring-like weather we are enjoying in Southern Cal. It may be snowing elsewhere but here it is 80. So, here is a tag that is part spring like and pink. A pinky spring tag!
Creative Details : It’s all about the layers…I first stenciled a back ground using a circle stencil, polka dot stencil and a diagonal line stencil with various acrylic paints including Liquitex, Distress, Golden and assorted craft acrylics in bright pink, bright green and orange . Then I added black Distress and Golden acrylic as an accent.
As the paint was drying, I stamped a torn piece of muslin with “gorgeous” in black ink. I made sure to fray all sides of the muslin. I glued down the pink ball embellishment with hot glue. Then I added the ivory crochet ribbon under the balls. I hot glued the muslin to the top of the pink ribbon. I mod podged the pink flower to the tag being careful not to get any gluey stuff on the muslin. While the tag was drying I dug through my embellishments stash and found the perfect metallic silver leaves. I attached the leaves with hot glue under the muslin. I found a little fabric butterfly and added it to the top of the muslin. I tucked in a homemade embellishment I made– a flower I stamped on top book paper, fussy cut and covered in glossy accents.
The tag still needed something so I added a ruffle of pink crepe paper. I ruffled it without concern for exact ruffles or even spacing on the back of the tag using hot-glue. I trimmed up the bottom of the ruffle so it was even. Then finally I added black rub-ons and polka-dotted the entire tag except the flower and embellishments with a white acrylic Sharpie Paint Pen. And finally I added a piece of ivory binding ribbon I stained with Distress Stain through the top hole of the tag. A perfectly pink spring tag.
