Making Music: A Blue Musical Tag
Today’s step by step is a musical themed tag that I made last week when I was with my good friend Laurart, she always inspires me to make wonderful tags, and this time she was teaching me some wonderful new techniques.
The first thing I did was cut out the music paper and decide where I wanted to place it on the tag where I wanted.
Next, using a few Distress Stains (Bundled Sage, Tarnished Brass and Broken China) I started to try and create a wrinkle free distress. I added all three to my mat and instead of adding water I added a glimmer spray to give a shimmer look to the tag. It was then left to dry.
Next I used Bundle Sage Distress Ink and blended this over the top of the tag.
Next, using the ‘Mini Antiquities’ template, I blended this onto the tag above and below the musical paper with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.
Then I coloured the Flower with Weathered Wood Ink to give it the beautiful colour you see.
For the embellishments I used crochet lace, a fabric flower and some twine and placed these where I wanted them on the tag.
What do you think? I would love to know you were here to please leave me a comment!
