Stamped and Embossed Tag

 Judy here, using VLVS images with emboss background and die cuts is always fun when making tags.

This fabulous image is from plate #893.  

Girl with wings 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
item #19005
Just dropping in to say... 1" x 3"
Item #178

VLVS supplies:
Miracle Tape
Ultra High Gloss Clear Embossing Powder
VLVS stamps

Other Supplies:
May Arts
Ranger Distress markers
Ranger Distress inks
Ranger ink blending Applicator
Dlyusions spray inks
Ranger Archival black ink
Sizzix die
Sizzix embossing folder
Ranger Glue n' seal
Quickutz die
Vagabond tool

To make this tag, die cut a #8 tag with manila file folder. Apply color using foam applicator with broken china, tumbled glass and weathered wood distress inks and then embossed using an embossing folder. To give the vintage look I used walnut distress ink over the tag.

The girl with wings was inked with black ink on Kromecote glossy cardstock. Heat set to dry. The image was then colored with light shades of distress markers. The piece was torn to fit the tag and then broken china distress ink was used over the edges. Miracle Tape was added to back and applied to tag.

Just dropping in to say…quote was inked with black archival on Kromecote document die cut, place the die cut on scrap paper and pour ultrahigh gloss clear embossing powder over the word and heat set. Edges were inked with broken china distress inks. Ends were folded and applied to tag using Miracle Tape.

Use several spray inks to color a small piece of manila card stock, heat set to dry and then die cut with a mini flourish die, apply glue and adhere to tag.
MayArts ribbon was applied to tag to finish.

Thank you for viewing my tutorial!
