Hello my friends!
This weeks prompt at The One Little Tag Craft Challenge is music. This can be interpreted any way we like, I have been using songs as inspiration. I knew I would be fired up by this prompt, I have a hundred tags in my head that I would like to make! This tag was inspired by Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams".
I started off this tag with some embossing. I thought these bubble-like images would give the background a dreamy quality. I used a kaleidoscope embossing powder that was glittery with various sparkles of colour. This would act as a resist to the ink that I add.
I did several backgrounds at the same time. I smooshed distress ink onto my craft mat and spritzed with water. I also added some Heidi Swapp ColorShine gold spray into the mix. I dragged and pounced my tags through the inky goodness, drying in between layers. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result.
As you can see here, the embossed areas resisted the ink.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the dream catcher from some blue foil board. I love to use gold and silver foil board, but there is also red, blue and green in the package that I don't use as often, so I was happy to find a use for the blue. I really liked the look. I don't know why, but I think of blue when I think of dreaming. I have heard that we don't actually dream in colour. I don't know if that is true or not, my dreams seem to be colourful!
This is a "Kelly Creates" stamp set that I got from Michaels. I love these sets and they are only $5 each! Even less if you have a coupon. I usually find Michaels a little pricey, but was really happy with this purchase. They all have about 18 - 20 words. I thought this was a great deal. Maybe I will do another post to showcase these stamps. Anyways, Dreams was one of the words on this set. I heat-embossed it with Rangers gold embossing powder on vellum. I wrapped the vellum around the tag. I did this so that it would mute the background enough for the word to stand out, but still visible behind the vellum.
Then I added a blue foil mat and my usual black mat to finish off the tag.
I hope you have enjoyed my process for making this tag. Thanks so much for letting me share it with you. Have an awesome day everyone!
