Eileen Hull: Hello Tag

Hi everyone! I know I have been “missing in action” for a lot of April and the first part of May. April I had a nasty virus that just would not go away and on top of that allergies. The first part of May I went on a beach vacation which was much needed to say the least. I have been working on projects but haven’t been able to share those at this moment but they are coming…I promise. ūüė䬆

This month on Eileen Hull’s blog it is ALL about flowers! I created this tag using up leftover ink from one of my previous projects. I started with a blank white 6.25″x3.125″ tag which I laid in the following watered down inks: Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends¬†Tutu, Wildberry,¬†Melon¬†and ColorBox Coral Premium Dye Ink. I moved the tag around in the mix of colors to cover the tag completely. I let it air dry but you can use an heat embossing tool to speed up the process.¬†Once dry I embossed the tag with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder.

I cut from two different cardstocks the Embroidery Hoop Diecut and using one part of the diecut from each of the different cardstocks I adhered to the front of the tag. I wrapped the excess around the tag. I adhered a patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag.

I stamped the Welcomegirl rubber stamp image onto a piece of watercolor paper and inked out onto my glass tray the following colors of ink: Golden, Stop, Uniform, Hydrangea, Melon and Nutmeg. I watered down each ink and then watercolored girl image. Once dry I fussy cut her out and adhered to the card.

I cut an assortment of flowers with white cardstock from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and once I cleaned off my glass tray I spritzed the following Tattered Angel Simply Sheer Mists: Soft Peach and Peony and added just a little water to mute colors some. I laid the flower diecuts into each color doing both sides before removing to dry. I also cut one set of leaves from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits. Once the flowers were dry I shaped with a stylus and adhered together.

I added an assortment of sequins and Dew Drops and Rainbow Glossy Dots to the center of the flowers and adhered to the tag along with bits of cheesecloth.

I stamped a Hello sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and added a few sequins randomly placed to the tag. I finished off with three strands of trim and a button to the top of the tag.
