A LOVE tag with three fun techniques!

Hello! I'm feeling my mojo coming back to me, it's very much welcome back!! I have played a LOT with this project, and I'm going to tell you all about it :)

Here's my tag!! I have used a Sagen Vintage napkin with gorgeous angels (I think) on. I totally fell in love with the shabby vintage colours and bought a whole package of them! I bought them for decoupage, but then I learnt about another technique using napkins, making your very own design papers! Here's what I did: I took off all the layers except the last with the motive on the napkin, put a peice of cling film on a piece of cardstock, then the single layer of napkin on top of that. Then I put on a protective paper (I used copy paper) on top and then I ironed it until the cling film had melted between the napkin and the cardstock. Done! My very own design paper! :D

When my design paper was done, I decided to do another new fun technique I've just learnt, using sticky embossing powder and glitter! I'm a HUGE fan of glitter, love it so much when things sparkle, so this is a totally Madeleine-thing now :D I stamped the whole paper with Distress Embossing ink, wet it down totally. Then I poured sticky embossing powder over it, shook it a little so there wouldn't be any powder flying around in the room when I started heating it ;) Then I heated it with my heating gun, and then the embossing powder becomes sticky (therefor the name of the product - Sticky) like glue! So I poured some Stickles Dry Fine Glitter Diamond (OMG, it's the best glitter in the WORLD!), shook it off a little and then heated the paper again. It's sooo delicious I almost wanna eat my paper LOL! :D (I know people might laugh at my enthusiasm, but I know you crafters TOTALLY understand what I mean :D )

Okay, the third thing I tried was another new thing I made up myself! I cut out the word Love of Tim Holtz Vintage Market die and Once upon a time die on cardstock, then I put on some Glossy accent, heated it a little to speed up the drying time and then I put some more Glossy Accent on and poured glitter over the letters! Heated it a little again to speed up the drying time and then they were done! I have enhanced the image so I hope you can see the embossed letters a little :D

The butterfly is cut with MemoryBox Swirl Butterfly. I used the same embossing/glitter technique with that one too. I have used a gorgeous pearl lace that I have bought at Live and Love Crafts (BEAUTIFUL store, owned by a Swedish woman too ;) ).

I totally loved making this tag, if you try these techniques as I have done with this tag, I can bet my left arm (I'm right-handed, don't wanna put to much pressure on me LOL) you're going to have as much fun as I did! :D

Happy Crafting!
xoxo Madeleine
