Next I placed the 2 1/2″x 1″ embossed piece of watercolor paper into the Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and once completely covered I removed and let dry. For the stamped Mermaid image I watercolored with the following inks: Face, arms and upper body…Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. Lower body/tail…a mix of Caribbean and Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. Seashells and fin of sea horse…Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. Hair…a mix of Bumble Bee and Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. Starfish…Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink.
I fussy cut the mermaid and sea horse images out and added clear glitter glue to sea horse fin, seashells, tail and starfish on mermaid. I inked two art daubers, one with Mint and the other with Capri Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and lightly ink edges of both embossed pieces of watercolor paper and circle diecut. I added foam pop dots to the back of the 3 7/8″x 1 3/4″ embossed pieces of watercolor paper and one side of the circle diecut and placed the embossed paper on top of the tag. I added a little glue to the other side of the circle diecut before laying on top of embossed paper. Next I adhered the 2 1/2″x1″ embossed paper on top of other embossed paper and circle diecut. I adhered the mermaid image on top of all pieces.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick tag that could be used as a gift tag on a present for Father’s Day or it could be used in a journal or a beach layout. I had created this a while back and I am just now getting around to sharing.
I cut 1/4″ off of this tag to make it 3 1/8″x6″ in size and then covered with a sheet of the seahorses from the Maritime 6×6 Paper Pad which is the perfect size for this tag. I inked around the edges and added other papers from the same collection which I distressed and inked too. The “Old Salt” and “Journey” images are from the Maritime Mini Ephemera diecut pack. I fussy cut those from the same diecut and adhered to the tag along with a messy bound bunch of thread.
I fussy cut more images from the paper pad and also added some clear sequins and mini flat back pearls randomly around to give the look of bubbles .
I cut a 6″ piece of Chocolate Waxed Cotton Cord and tied to the top of the tag to finish it off. And there you have it a very simple tag that looks like a lot of time was spent on it but in reality maybe an hour at the most. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.
Hi everyone! I have returned from vacation at Folly Beach and while I was there I received an email that a card I submitted to Canvas Corp was selected to be featured on their blog. I was and still am super excited! For more photos and info on this card please check Canvas Corp’s blog!
