The best and most beautiful things are felt with the heart and cannot be seen – a favorite saying of mine and also the inspiration behind my themed tag this month. I used inks and paste to create a shimmering background for this beautiful tag.
Time: 30 Minutes + dry time
Add some texture to a tag using a stencil and texture paste. Once the paste is dry, use a brayer and roll Delicata Golden Glitz onto the tag randomly and leave to dry.
Start by inking some Blue Hawaii StazOn ink onto the tag over the gold texture background. Add color in 2 or more areas using a jumbo dauber.
Use a clean jumbo dauber and ink your tag using Orange Zest StazOn ink in the open areas, overlap the ink onto the blue inked areas too, so the colors blend seamlessly into each other.
Now add some brown Ganache StazOn ink around the edges of the tag using another jumbo dauber.
Mist the inked tag using Gold Shimmer Spritz and leave to dry. The shimmer gives the StazOn inks a beautiful look. Finish by adding the sentiment and any additional embellishments with foam tape. I choose to staple the sentiment and add three hearts with gold thread in the back.
Tip: To clean the StazOn ink on my craft mat I use StazOn stamp cleaner and then wipe it clean, otherwise, the ink will permanently stain your mat.
