Susanne here today and I have a tutorial for this lovely tag mini album to share. I used the new African Animals, which are drawings by me :-), together with many other stamps from Rubber Dance.
Here are the instructions:
First of all cut some tags from kraft cardstock. I used the awesome CAS-ual Fridays Tag die. The tags need some texture first so I used a script stamp and the globes randomly with Archial Ink Coffee.
In the next step I add some gesso with a brush and let it dry.
I stamp the main images with Archival Ink Jet Black and the "Dream" from the Affirmations set. I give it some color with Distress Inks. I use Distress Inks to get only a light amount of color, because most of my background is gesso. If you want more intense colors you better use Neocolors II.
I add some texture with the stamps from the "Pick a Number" set.
Now it's time for some embellishments. Recently I found these awesome new dies from Nellie Snellen. I ordered them immediately because they are matching the African Animals stamps perfectly. For this mini album I used these:
I use Brushos to color them. I add the Brusho powder first and then spray them with water. You only need a tiny amount of the pigments!
After the die cuts were dry I added some Distress Micro Glaze to save the colors and added Glossy Accents to them. I also added some black splatters to my tags.
Finally I build the tags together with a book ring and added some more details with washi tape and different die cuts. The big flower is a rolled flower die from Die-Namics. Instead of using a quilling tool I just rolled the flower a little in the wrong direction and adhered it. You get a totally different flower. What normally the bottom is, became my middle:
