So tonight I set out to do a quick tag.....
The embossing was quick! The rest was a bit more involved!
I used one of Spellbinders ™ new 3D M-Bossabilities ™ folders to emboss a manilla tag! The embossing is amazing! Very deep! This pattern is E3D-005 Ornamental Swirls. The folder embosses a 5 x 7" area. I used just the bottom of it for my tag. At the top I embossed lines using just a portion of EL-026 Framed Petite Labels (not 3D). Okay, that was the easy part!!!
Next, I rubbed on Baroque Art Gilders Paste. I just recently added a few of these to my stash. The shine is amazing after buffing. I don't think they were exactly developed for paper but they work!
I started with Patina.
It did repel the color in some areas. Other areas absorbed more than I wanted. The question: Start over or keep adding color? I added more color!!
I dried the Glimmer Mist. Then I added more Gilders Paste. I added Antique Gold next. Then more Iris Blue and even a touch of Copper. I kept rubbing on color, buffing it and adding more until it was "okay". I needed to get it done so I could go to bed! LOL!
Once I added the ribbon and tag, I loved the colors!
The frame part of the tag was cut from white cs. I sprayed it with Pomegranate Glimmer Mist and added a touch of Iris Blue Gilders Paste around the edges. The greeting from Quietfire Designs is stamped on pale sage card stock and glued behind. Both tags are from Spellbinders S4-392 Framed Tags One. Love these tags because there's a cut out for each one that's also a tag in itself. You can see the set here.
The sheer ribbon is from May Arts. I tied the tag on with gold thread.
The color is wonderful but the most amazing part is the detail and incredible dimensional effect of the embossing created with the 3D M-Bossabilities folder! You will love these!!!
