Hello! Today I’ve got a tag to share with you. I used the Sugar Skull Cling set from Stampendous for it. I really like this particular Sugar Skull, and you will probably see it again later in the month.
I colored the stamped image with my Zig Clean Color Markers, and used the accompanying die to cut it out. I really like how this set has both stamps and dies included. Then I started to make my tag.
I used Distress Oxide inks on a plain manila tag from Staples. The colors are Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Lucky Clover, and Wilted Violet. I applied the inks with an Ink Blending Tool and then I misted them with water and dabbed up the excess to get variations of color. Then I stamped the “spooktacular” with VersaFine Ink. Next, I coated the whole tag with VersaMark ink and sprinkled on a layer of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set it and then repeated it 2 more times. As you can see, it looks like rippled glass now.
I used On Point Glue from Imagine to adhere the skull to the tag. It’s not to easy to attach things to melted embossing powder, so I typically like to use a we glue for that. I added some purple chiffon ribbon from Creative Impressions.
That’s it for me today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!
