Smile When You Remember........

Hi Blank Page Muse Fans!

I hope you have been enjoying the DT creations so far this month! Always so much creativity and inspiration being shared here at the blog!

Today I am sharing some vintage style tags made with rubber stamps and collage elements!
I love combining rubber stamping with collage - a great way to compliment each other!
Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Background Roses by Pam Bray
Blank Page Muse Stamp Set: Art Journaling #2 by Terri Sproul - "Remember When" & "Smile"
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Background Grunge Art Sheet by Pam Bray - "Single Rose"
Blank Tags
Collage Characters - used here Art Tea Life Collage Sheet
Ink Sprayed "Mop Up" Paper Towel
Embossing Ink & Gold Embossing Powder
Black Archival Ink & Distress Inks
Gesso
Kraft Paper Scraps
Scraps Muslin Cloth
Cloth Ribbon & Fancy Pin
Tools: heat gun, scissors, glue, sponge, spatula
Instructions:
The first step is to decorate your tag background.

Use a glue stick to cover the front of your tag and adhere the paper towel to the tag. Cut out around the tag leaving a border to fold over and adhere to the back of the tag to give a neat finish to the tag front. Then use a spatula and the Gesso and apply a very thin layer to the tag front. As you can see in the picture above the Gesso helps to tone the colour ready for the next step.
Ink the Rose Background Stamp with embossing ink and stamp onto the tag. Use gold embossing powder and a heat gun to set. the effect of this stamp over the background in gold is beautiful!
Decorate the plain cloth ribbon to add to the top of your tag. Use a sponge and some Distress inks to colour the ribbon and then stamp the Single Rose with Black Archival Ink randomly over the ribbon.
Stamp your wording stamps onto Kraft paper and tear out.
Fussy cut your collage elements and arrange on the tag along with the scrap of muslin cloth and wording stamp and adhere with glue. Attach the printed ribbon to the top with a fancy safety pin.
Hope you have enjoyed my post today!
Always so many ways to use your Blank Page Muse Stamps!
Enjoy!
