Hi everyone, Mou here with today's project for you!
To make this tag, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Mist Maker Set
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencils 101: Dots, Hexagons
May Arts ribbon # 516-4-02 4" x 10Y Jute & Wire
May Arts ribbon # 433-14-10 1/4" x 15Y Lace
May Arts ribbon # SK-125-01 Silk
May Arts ribbon # 368-15-01 1.5" x 30Y Polyester
Others: Sizzix Bigz L Die - Tag; die-cutting system; cardstock, tissue, old book page, stamp, embellishments from my stash, thread, sewing machine, stapler, needle, beads
Now let me walk you through the steps.
Diecut tag and create a base with layers of cardstock, book paper, tissue, etc. using Gel Medium. Add a decorative edge with stitching.
Whitewash the background with a coat of gesso.
Rub various Gelatos colors on the tag and blend parts of it with your fingers and some with wet paint brush.
Using a palette knife and the dots stencil, apply Gold Texture Luxe paste near the top right part of the tag.
Layer jute and lace trims on the tag and secure with stapler.
Cut about 12" of silk ribbon and color it with Gelatos colors and blend by misting with water.
Once the water dries, tie the ribbon into a bow and attach to tag.
Cut various lengths of silk and polyester ribbons. Fold them in halves lengthwise and straight stitch along the open edge. Pull the thread to scrunch up the ribbon and sew it in the center to make them look like flowers. Color the flowers with various shades of Gelatos.
Embellish around the flower cluster with buttons, pins, beads, etc, securing them in place with Gel Medium. Apply Texture Luxe Gold paste with plalette knife through hexagon stencil near the bottom of the tag to finish.
I hope you enjoy today's tutorial and have fun hopping. Good luck to all!
