Hello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing a sweet pair of tags featuring the Damask Texture Stamp
. The Damask Texture is great for adding small patches of pattern to your projects.
I started with two tags which had been coloured using a paint marbling technique. One was done using yellow and pink while the other was done using different blues with a touch of yellow. I tend to do a whole bunch of these at once so they are ready to go when inspiration strikes! I also find that doing a batch in one go limits the mess I need to clean up.
To create the blue tulip tag –
1. Stamp Damask Texture into the middle of the tag using clear Versamark ink and emboss with clear powder. I stamped at a slight angle for added interest.
2. Sponge with Distress Inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade in the middle, Peacock Feathers at the top and Salty Ocean at the bottom. Wipe over the embossing with a tissue to remove any excess ink. Flick with a little water to add to the distressed look.
3. Stamp the open tulip twice from Full Bloom Vol 1 set using Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold and Peeled Paint Distress inks. Trim closely and add to the tag with stems overlapping. Tie a small bow and add to stems.
4. Stamp greeting onto the bottom of the tag.
5. Add some ribbon to the top and a punched strip to the bottom to finish.
To create the pink lavender tag –
1. Stamp Damask Texture onto the top and bottom of the tag using clear Versamark ink and emboss with clear powder. I stamped at a slight angle for this one as well.
2. Sponge with Distress Inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry at the top and bottom and Picked Raspberry all around the tag. Wipe over the embossing with a tissue to remove any excess ink.
3. Stamp the lavender sprig from the Art De Fleur Vol 1 set using Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. Stamp a second time without reinking for a ghost effect.
4. Stamp the greeting from Art De Fleur Vol 1 set using black Archival ink.
5. Tie a small bow and add to stems. Some ribbon tied to the top of the tag will finish it off.
Paint marbling is done by dabbing a small amount of Distress Paint onto a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then dragging the tag through the runny paint. It can create beautiful, marbled effects.
