Love the look of this

Tags cut from Glossy Cardstock

Sentiments and quote by Quietfire Design done with Versafine.

On craft sheet put a zig zag mark of metallic ink (gold), then zigs or droplets of Butterscotch, Raspberry, Clover, Lettuce, Stream. Droplets of Blending solution, then swipe glossy cardstock through the inks, repeat swiping until paper is covered.


Put 1 squirt dots of various colors of alcohol ink on clean felt (Sailboat Blue, Raspberry, Slate, Stream), pounce on glossy tag till filled. Color should be dark to achieve contrast with next step.

Place stencil over tag and lightly pounce with FOAM tool and Alcohol blender (less is more for his step). Allow area to activate before pouncing there again. Continue for a while, then remove stencil and dry. Area should be lighter than surrounding area.

Stamp with Archival (I used Versafine) dry. Upper stamped area clear embossed. Bottom stamp without clear embossing.
