These three tags I have made using the Heartfelt stamps and dies.
I have had the flower stamps forever.....I have used them a few times for my LO's, but this time I played a bit more...and am very happy with the out come. My fav. is the center tag.....I wonder why? I also used Dusty Attic!

Method of working.
-Stamp the flower spray on the tag.
-Stamp the extra separate flowers.
-Colored the edges of the tag and working to the center with Ranger Distress ink.
-Spray the tag with Ranger- Perfect pearls mist- Biscotii
-Run the cats eye on the edge.
-Using the same ink as above color the flowers darker.
-Cut the stamped flowers out with the coordinating die cuts.
-Using the same ink as above color the flowers darker. Do this after they are cut.
This will insure, the edges will pick up a darker shade.
-Using a balling mat and balling tool-ball all the cut flowers, so they curl under.
Using the balling tool push in the center so they curl u at the ends.
-Glue the balled layers on the stamped flowers
-Cut the small birds.
-Stamp To a Special Couple on a light colored paper.
-Spray the above with Glimmer Mist.
-Cut the ends as seen above.
-Ink bookplate edges with cats eye.
-Now you can glue the bookplate.
-Apply the stickles and glossy on to the book plate....wait to dry.
-Screw up the green Title paper, flatten, then glue in place.
-Glue the small birdies with foam tape..to give hight
-Once all glue is dry, add the stickles. This is so the birds will not move while coloring.
You can color the bookplates now if you wanted to. I do.
But, you have to be very careful not to make a big mess!
So to begin with, go for the long and safe way.
-Color the leaves with glimmer mist, using a fine water color paint brush.Dry
-Trace the swirls and top the leaves with glossy.
-Add a little stikles on the tis of the flowers.
-Yellow Gold stickles in each of the center of the flowers.
-Add a little gold on the edge of the tag and blend with you finger.
-Tie a ribbon to the tag.
You are now done, I hope you had fun. Depending on what paper color is chosen is to what effect it will turn out. This would look fantastic in white/cream and soft colors. You are limited by your imagination!A few close ups.
Keep an eye out for #2 and #3 in the next few days.
Have a scrappy day...scrappy hugs,
