Tutorial? it must be Tuesday

Hello everyone! Debs here with a tutorial for you, using some brand new stamps. 



I designed this stamp for Rubber Dance to be used in lots of different ways. Today I share how I’ve created this retro feel tag, with its own little mason type jar.




To start I created a crackle background by first painting tag blue, then adding the crackle medium and once dry the last coat is a gorgeous cream paint.





Next I stamped my focal point and little extras for interest. Note how it didn’t stamp fully in the middle. If that happens with you, don’t worry -   just add in the lines with a fine black pen, as I did. Stamping over a rough surface can be tricky, so a top tip is to use your stamp platform if you have one, as you can re-stamp it at the exact same place.




I heat set the tag a placed it to the side while I worked on the jar. I stamped it and cut round it so it was ready to decorate.





Using Artist Pitt Pens I added some colour, I wanted to keep it translucent this time but you could easily use an opaque acrylic paint, which would look quite affective. Once happy with the colour I wound some fine twine around the top of the jar and then added a tiny heart from my set of whiteboard hearts which I had pieced so I could thread the twine through so that it could hang from the twine. I coloured this in the same way but gave it a rust colour.




Again using the Pitt Pens I built up the colours of the different flowers and leaves.




Once it was all dry, I added some highlights with a Gel Pen and the sentiment. I thought I was finished but couldn’t leave it alone so added some white dots to some flowers and some yellow pearl drops from Nuvo by Tonic Studios.

I used 3D tape behind the jar below the twine and glued on the twine to adhere it to the flowers, this helped to give it a 3D effect





To finish I edged the tag in gold and added a twine bow.


I do hope you like this tag as I had so much fun creating it.

Take care
