Whenever there is a 5th Friday in the month - several of the Creative Guides for A Vintage Journey post a tag - and this month I'm one of those Creative Guides!
I have a few process photos to show you just how I created my tag.
I started with a manila tag 6 1/4" x 3 1/4". I rubbed Twisted Cintron DOX onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and pressed my tag into it. I dried it with my heat tool.
Then I sponged Fired Brick DOX through a Tim Holtz Christmas Stencil onto the tag.
And for a third layer - I sponged Versamark ink through Tim's Festive Stencil and embossed it with Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture. This made a wonderfully shiny almost-clear design over the other layers.
To vintage it up a bit - I sponged around the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo DOX.
Then I took out my Dashing Deer die and cut it out of Kraft Core-dinations brown and then just the antlers out of a lighter tan. Before removing the cuts from the paper, I sanded over them to reveal some of the Kraft Core.
I trimmed the bottom edge of the antlers and adhered them over the brown die cut and then sponged the edges a bit with the Vintage Photo DOX.
I adhered the deer to the tag, added some dew drops to his antlers, a Metallic Holiday Sticker and looped a piece of Cream/Red Trimmings through the hole of the tag.
I layered my tag to a slightly larger piece of brown card stock just to give it a more finished look.
So please take a look at all the wonderful tags created by the Creative Guides over at A Vintage Journey - you can also link up your tag there to share with us!
