Indian Princess Tag by Deborah


First I sprayed the inks onto a sheet of sturdy A4 white card, drying with a heat gun in between layers. I also added a little Studio Calico Mr Huey Mist: Custard.
I cut off a strip for the tag, stamped one of the Bombay floral motifs randomly in Magenta Ranger Archival Ink and edging with a black ProMarker.
I stamped the Abundance stamp (the face), more motifs and the hennaed hands onto the remaining card, using VersaFine Onyx Black, lightening the face with a flesh coloured oil pastel. I highlighted parts of the main image with Carmine ProMarker and Candy Cane Stickles Glitter Glue.
Once the Stickles had dried (don’t be tempted to rush this!), I cut everything out, stapled the hands to the main image with pink mini staples, stuck the floral motifs on with double sided tape, and mounted the main image onto the tag with two layers of foam tape. (You could use the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and colour the staples with ProMarkers or alcohol inks.)
I stamped the words onto a Spellbinders Label 8 die cut, edged it in black ProMarker, stamped a small motif from Crafty Individuals CI-342 in the magenta ink, fixed two layers of foam tape to the back and stuck it bottom of the tag. If you don’t have a die cutting machine you could use one of the Hot off the Press Design Tools to make your label.
I added more of the Candy Cane Stickles to the hands and the flowers on the label then finished the tag by adding beaded braid, sari ribbon and gold embellishments. You could probably make your own sari ribbon by spraying Tim Holtz Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon and adding a line of Stickles glitter glue along the centre. And if I hadn’t been so lazy, I could have made my own rolled paper beads with the Hot off the Press Bead Maker template. (I have made some – it’s really easy - but they are green).
