J&C Creations - A Mini Tag Book!

Good Morning!
This week it is all about Mini Books / Tags over at the  J&C CREATIONS BLOG.! I have decided to combine both of these and make a Mini Tag Book with some ATC Blanks that I have just trimmed the top off to turn them into tags and punched a hole through with my Crop - A - Dile.


To decorate the blanks I have opted to use Distress Paints. I just love their marble effect! To use them simply swipe the paints over the blanks & spray liberally with water. To help the marble effect you can hold each blank up and roate it on angles to get the paint to run, once your happy simply heat dry.


I have also added Silver Metallic Distress Paint onto the backgrounds for a second layer!


Once dry I stamped sentiment on the two outside tags and part of a floral stamp onto the centre tag.I have only embellished the tags very simply by adding eyelets to the holes at the top, dew drops and threading through some twine to hold them all together. Finishing off the twine with a floral charm!



INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Sentiment Stamps & Tim Holtz 'Dried Flowers' Stamps
Dew Drops, Floral Charm & Twine
Ranger Glossy Accents & Liquid Pearls - Platinum Pearl


INKS USED -
Distress Paints - Brushed Pewter, Victorian Velvet, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain,
