Hello and welcome to the Crafty Power Blog! Here’s Birgit Koopsen with a guest post and tutorial for you today.
I think I can say I have a positive attitude, always trying to make the best of everything, so I guess the quote on this tag is quite appropriate. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Maybe that’s also why I love bright colors so much. They just make me feel good.
Here’s how this tag was created:
Put a large tag on a 6”x12” Adhesive Sheet and replace the protective sheet on top. Use a brayer to firmly roll over the protective sheet to make sure the adhesive sticks to the tag well everywhere.
Remove the tag from the Adhesive Sheet. The tag should now be completely covered with a thin layer of adhesive.
Place the embossed Shimmer Sheetz on top of the tag and roll them firmly with the brayer to transfer the top layer of the sheet to the tag. Lift up the sheet carefully to see if you’re satisfied with the transfer. If needed put it down and roll some more.
Then remove the sheet.
Add a color of Silk Microfine Glitter to part of the tag. Tap off the excess powder and then use a soft brush to remove any left loose glitter.
Randomly apply DodzTM Small to the tag. These will become the rain drops.
Cover the DodzTM with embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder. If there is any embossing powder left in areas where you don’t want it use a soft brush to wipe it off. Then heat emboss the DodzTM just long enough to make the embossing powder melt. If there are still some sticky spots after embossing (which might happen if you heat just a bit too long) simply add another layer of embossing powder and heat again.
To finish the tag:
Randomly stamp with background stamps and black ink such as Stazon. Highlight some parts with a white pen. Punch out little butterflies from scrap paper.
Use a black pen to outline the rain drops to make them stand out more. Also use DodzTM to apply little die cut butterflies.
Use 3D Foam Squares to adhere the clouds.
Print and/or write your quote, cut it in strips and apply using MyStikTM Permanent Strips.
