Sparklers Tags by Melina Dahl


It´s Melina here, and today I want to share 2 tags with you.
I started by applying red, yellow and blue Distress Oxides to my tags. By blending these three colours you get the orange and the green too. I then activated the Oxides with Sparklers spray through different That´s Crafty! 8x8” stencils. 

For the next layer I stamped with the script stamp from Textures Stamp Set 1, using the same Distress Oxide colours. I also added a few splashes of black gesso on my tags. 

I painted turquoise, yellow and red shimmer paints on a piece of watercolour paper. I then stamped the butterflies with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white powder. The shimmer on those butterflies is fantastic! 

I stamped the “Fly-Fly-Flowers” on one of the tags with black ink, using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. I also stamped the butterflies once more on the same piece of painted paper as before. I cut them out and glued them down on my tag.

I glued my shiny butterflies to the other tag and at last stamped the sentiments on my tags using Lynne's Affirmations Set 2. 

I used:

Distress Oxides - Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Broken China
That's Crafty! Shimmer Paints - Turquoise, Red, Yellow
That's Crafty! 8x8 Stencils - TC8005, TC8001
That's Crafty! Stamp Sets - Textures Set 1, Lynne's Affirmations Set 2
Rubber Dance Stamps - Butterfly trio, Fly-Fly-Flowers

Hope you enjoyed!
Hugs Melina
