Crafty Individuals Sponsor Spotlight

Hi everyone!

I am so thrilled to bring you the first of our Spotlight's for August!
Our Sponsor this month is .....

To make this Sponsor Spotlight creation I chose these gorgeous summery themed stamps

I decided to make a tag - using an MDF booklet page

I started by cutting out some card to fit the MDF page. I stamped some of the images in Potting Soil Archival ink on separate card and then dabbed them with some Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo DI.

I then painted them with some matte multi-medium and left them to dry.

I also used a heart that had been cut from printed paper and had a quote from the stamp sets stamped on it with Potting Soil Archival ink.

I covered the card tag with some Distress Paints that had been smooshed all over the craft mat and spritzed with water. I used Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood and Picket Fence.

I then cut out the stamped images and stuck all the images onto the tag. I covered the whole tag with Picket Fence DP. Spritzed lightly with water and dabbed the paint from the images with a wipe, this gave a mottled sky effect to the tag background and added a faded vintage look to the stamped images.

I then stamped with my favourite script stamp in Vintage Photo DI and Potting Soil Archival ink.

I added some Tea Dye Distress embossing powder over multi-medium and when dry I brushed off any excess.

I added some more glue and attached some micro beads

I dabbed around the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo DI and gave the whole tag a light spritz of White Linen Dylusion spray. Then I added the last of the stamp cut outs that had been dabbed with Distress ink.

Knotted twine was added along the bottom of the tag and below the beach huts

A double looped string of twine formed the bow at the top of that tag..........

I then glued the card tag onto the MDF page and there is my summer themed tag! Another creation to hopefully inspire you to take part in our Summertime challenge!
