Scrap Alphabet

Creativity is a an experience that lets your imagination take you where you want it to go. Tags have great scope for this to occur and therefore my scrap alphabet tag for the letter c reflects this.

C is for create

This tag has a few techniques in the background and they include the use of tim holtz distress ink in three ways spraying, application with a blending tool and stamping, as well as stamping with pearlised paint. These techniques allow a soft muted background to be achieved.

The monogram was inked then heat embossed with lilac embossing powder to tone in with the background. The embellishments are by petaloo and wild orchid crafts in a floral theme and give the tag an over all feminine tone.

The products I used were as follows : 

No 8 Shipping tag
We are memory keepers eyelets
Distress ink ( shaded lilac, Vintage photo, Frayed burlap )
Kaiser craft cling stamps
Alpha stamps
Pearlised paint 
Zing embossing powder
chip board monogram
card stock in desired color
Assorted ribbon and trim
Wild orchid crafts roses and leaves
Petaloo darjeeling flowers

Let your own creativity flow and give tag making a try. You can use them as card toppers and layout journaling spots and as post cards to friends and family as well as many other applications.

What are you favorite embellishments to use on your creations and why ?. As you have noticed I love flowers and incorporate them as often as I can. Looking forward to reading your comments.

Cheers Andrew
