Foamiran Tag

Morning everyone, Great to be sharing a Foamiran project today. For this post I decided to make an oversized tag, decorated with pale Lilac Roses. I think sometimes it is nice to have a really nice tag, either to use on a gift or to use for a larger or special card. I really love making the roses, as you all know, I also had fun making the tag to match.

You will Need:
Oversized Watercolour tag approx 10 x 5''
Versafine Black Ink
Nasturtium Stamps by John Lockwood
Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink
Prussian Blue Watercolour Paint
Yellow Ochre Watercolour Paint
Paint Brush and Water
Pink Luscious Powder
Tacky Glue
Black Card
Matching Ribbon
Glue Gun
Florist Wire

Step 1: Colour you tag using the watercolours, add the luscious powder for more texture and interest.

Step 2: Add your sentiment using Versafine Black Ink.

Step 3: Stamp the flourishes and blooms to your tag.

Step 4: Cut a selection of petals form squares measuring 2.5 x 2.5 cm & 3 x 3 cm. Heat and shape them by folding them width ways, twisting gently, and rolling the petals.

Step 5: Start building up your roses, you want to create a small, medium and large.

Step 6: Arrange on the project and layer the tag onto black card using Tacky glue. Add some leaves.

Step 7: Colour the flower stamps with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide to finish your tag.

Many thanks for joining me today, I do hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and the finished piece. I do hope you will join me again, when I will be sharing something else. For now Take care and Happy Crafting.xxx
