Hydrangea Tag Card
Hello folks, hope you are all doing ok. This card I have for you today was made with a stamp plate from Elusive Images. The background was created using a brayer and then embossed with the silver butterfly design from the stamp set. The main hydrangea design was stamped onto acetate and then the reverse side was covered with double sided sticky plastic. Once in place I peeled the back off to reveal the sticky side and then dabbed Ranger Perfect Pearl powders to colour the image from the reverse. I then cut around the image using a sizzix tag die. The small butterflies were also stamped onto the acetate and coloured in the same manner as the hydrangea tag. The background tag was put through a cuttlebug embossing folder that had been inked with a brayer before putting the paper in. When you run it through the cuttlebug machine the ink transfers to the debossed side. I love this technique as it gives your embossing folders another use. A Martha Stewart punch was used along the decorative panel and it was stamped using the corner stamp from the same Elusive Images stamp plate. The sentiment is from the stamp plate and the card was finished off with silver ribbon and the odd dab of crystal Stickles glue.
