Shabby Chic' Tags

 On AFTCM we did a swap in September with the theme Shabby Chic' with a clay embellishment.

For the first tag I stamped a Hero Arts harlequin stamp on white cardstock with white pigment ink. I coloured over it with Clearsnap Shabby Chic' pigment inks in 3 different colours using a stylus and foam tip.

I punched some flower shapes from scrapbook paper with text on it and glued them together. I added some air dried clay circles to the centres, which I had stamped texture on and coloured with Mica Magic inks.

I outlined the edges with a coordinating coloured marker and attached lace to left-hand side and fibres to the top.

On the second tag I stamped a Penny Black floral stamp in white pigment ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I coloured over it with the Shabby Chic pigment inks. 

I added a piece of a doily at the bottom and some text scrapbook paper on the right, and coloured them with the pigment inks. I added a string of pearls and some lace. 

I applied some Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges of the tag to add some depth.

The air dried clay piece was coloured with distress paint and attached near the bottom.

Due to a slight mix up on the group, I sent the tags to the wrong person so I made two more tags for the correct partner. 

On the first of the new tags, I coloured the tag with the Shabby Chic pigment inks the Stamp Smoosh technique, and a colorbox stylus and foam tip. 

I stamped the image by Rubber Stampede in Rangers Black archival ink.

Took some Tim Holtz tissue tape, coloured it with the pigment inks and attached it on the lower portion of the tag and added lace above and below it. I glued the clay flower in place with some glue.

I coloured scraps of white cardstock with the pigment inks and punched out a small circle, then punched a hole in the centre. Stamped over this with a text stamp and Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I placed this over the hole at the top of the tag as a reinforcement.

The second tag may actually look more vintage than Shabby Chic, so hope my partner will like it anyway.

I coloured the white tag with the Shabby Chic pigment inks, sandwiched it between two pieces of newsprint to heat set it. Stamped around the tag with a clear Magenta stamp.

I coloured a piece of white lace with Lavendar fluid chalk ink, heat set it the same way as the tag and attached it at the bottom.

I die cut a Memory Box Palace Oval frame, covered it with clear embossing ink and embossed it with Silver embossing powder, added some clear UTEE and let it cool. I went over it with some black acrylic paint then wiped it off.

I printed an image from Elizabeth's blog  and die cut it using the same die. I inserted the picture in the middle of the die-cut and attached it to the tag.

I glued a piece of velvet ribbon over the lace, attached some pearls and the clay piece which I adorned with some little gems. Must admit that the more I look at my "clay piece", I am thinking it might be a UTEE piece, so if it is hope my partner doesn't mind the substitution!!
