Fall Tag

Yesterday was my day at Scrapbook News and Review to show off my take on a fall tag. Hope you enjoy!

Cut white cardstock to 6 1/4 in by 3 1/8 in. Cut assorted color carstock to 3/4 in x 3/4 in and ink around the edges. Adhere the cardstock squares to tag and set tag aside.

Cut a 2 1/2 in x 2 1/2 in piece of cardstock and cover the entire piece with a thin layer of modelling paste. Allow to dry for 2-3 minutes. Note - the modelling paste will not be completely dry so take caution when handling so as not to displace the modelling paste.

Using a mister filled with water, spritz your selected stamp and stamp firmly into the modelling paste. The water will act as a resist and allow a clean stamped image without having the modelling paste stick to the stamp. Set aside to completely dry (overnight is ideal).

Stamp sentiment and cut out.

Once the carstock piece with modelling paste is completely dry, add color with distress ink.

To add a bit of shimmer, make a small pool of water, add a bit of perfect pearls, and mix together. Paint the slurry onto the stamped piece.

Attach stamped image, sentiment, and add ribbon.
