Altered Tag using Perfect Paints!

Back in the Scrapbooking days, I loved all my crafting books. We would have fun things like monthly challenges or contests. Sometimes I needed those challenges to spark some inspiration.


I love the Design Team here and how they challenge me to branch out and try different things. The other day I was tossed out a challenge to use several Perfect Paints Shimmering Acrylics, some Stucco and use a tag! Challenge accepted!


Hope you love making this as much as I did!

Misc stamps

49 & Market Serenity Ephemera Die Cut Pieces

Instructions:


I started by taking some thick cardstock and cutting out the tag in the desired size.

Using the White Stucco I spread it all over the tag randomly.

While it is still wet, take your stamps and just stamp randomly along the tag and set aside to dry. I really love how this stucco and the stamps give it a texture.

Now I used the Perfect Paints Shimmering Acrylics in Vintage Patina and Rainstorm - blending softly across the tag. I LOVE the gold that shines through the Patina. Because the cardstock is damp from the stucco and paints it may curl so once it is dry and I am not worried about messing up the stucco....I laid a heavy book on it to finish drying.

Now it is time to add embellishments. I used the 49 & Market Die Cut Pieces and wildflowers and randomly adhered it all down onto the tag.

Paint the wooden flowers with Shimmering Cajun Pumpkin and adhere to the tag.

Add a quote and some twine.

Have a great week....
