The base of the tag is three layers. I used the Fairy Belle collection (La Ronde Paper) for the main base. I then added black cardstock and an embossed layer of white cardstock.
I used Prima Paintables II - True Love paper to cut out a portion of the design to add to my tag. I used Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade) to color the white flowers on the paintable paper. To do this, I stamped the ink on a craft mat, added water and applied the diluted color using a paint brush.
Next, I cut images from the La Ronde paper, inked the edges and tucked the images behind the white leaves to create contrast.
I added an antique sign which I used as my title. I added white gesso to the base of the sign to give it a worn appearance. I added black rosettes and spinkled flowers on top of them and into the design, then highlighted everything using white gesso.
To finish my design, I added a large fabric bow and tucked in a paper ribbon made using a strip die from the Lifestyle Crafts Nice Die Cut collection. I also added a delicate die cut into my flowers at the bottom of the tag using a Memory Box Fauntleroy die.
