Double Tag by Mandy C

Distress Paints in Evergreen Bough and Pumice Stone
Versamagic in Aegean Blue
Colorbox Cats Eye Ink Pad ~ Chestnut Roan
Cosmic Shimmer Glue


Firstly, cut a piece of white card to the size of 14cm squared. Score at 7cm. Fold in half and cut the triangles off at the corners to create the tag shape.

Mark 3.5 cm on one side, fold and punch through both tags at the same time so they are equally spaced.

Stamp the script from the 'Bluebird' set to the background using the Watering Can Archival ink. If you stamp first the Distress paints will 'knock back' the intenseness of the stamping to just leave a textural background.

Use your Distress paints to create a background. I first applied the Pumice Stone paint, and then added streaks of the Evergreen Bough to create a 'distressed' vintage look. Leave to one side to dry.

Stamp your images, the little boy photo image and the row of birds onto some stamping card using the black Archival. Cut out the birds and 'tear' the photo out. Edge the photo image. Also stamp out the sentiment and the number tag from the Oxford Impressions set onto some card and cut out. Colour with watercolour pencils.

Now your background is dry, add some hearts using the Cats Eye blue and the heart from the 'My Story' set of stamps. Just stamp randomly to add texture and interest to your background.

Stamp the 'birds on a wire' from the Artistic Outpost across the top of the tag at an angel using black Archival.

Position where you want the photo stamped image on the left side tag and then stamp the line of birds directly onto the right side of the tag. Glue the birds you previously cut out over the top of the stamped image. This will create a bit of depth especially if you leave a slight 'shadow' by positioning the cut out image slightly off side to the directly stamped image.

Edge the sentiment with Chestnut Roan chalk ink and glue into position using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue.

Edge the tag firstly with the Aegean Blue chalk ink and then the Chestnut Roan.

Lastly, add a small piece of ribbon to each tag.
