Shabby Tag by Helen Chilton


I've made a shabby tag this week using one of the long, thin greyboard ones.
First I applied some Midnight Multi Surface paint.

Then a thick coat of Crackle Glaze.

I left it to dry overnight and then painted over in white.

Once it had crackled and I'd rubbed it down a bit, I added touches of Mustard yellow.

For the flowers, I inked them up with Distress ink pads using a stamping platform. Stamp several times to get a good depth of colour.

Then stamp the stalks in the same way.

Paint over loosely with a waterbrush.

Cut out and layer up on the tag. Add the text and fibres/ribbon.

A lovely, bright tag for a dull, grey day!

Hope you've enjoyed the process.
