Vintage Couture Tag by Mel Connell

Welcome back everyone. 
Today I have an Art Tag I created using lots of the Couture Creations goodies. 
You will need either a white or manilla tag, some white cardstock, water reactive inks, brown ink, some embellishments and all  the Couture Creations goodies you can possibly put on it. 

Start by ink the entire surface of your tag. I used two colours but you can use as many as you want. Flick some water on it to active the inks and get the water stained effect. 

Using a Couture Creations finger dauber, ink with brown all around the tag to get a worn vintage look. Run your tag through your embossing machine using an embossing folder, I used the Couture Creations Sew Sew Sew embossing folder. Use your dauber and brown ink to highlight the raised embossed pattern. 

Using the Couture Creations Peacock delight die cut two feathers from white cardstock. If you don't have the Peacock delights die, any of the Leaf/branch or other feather dies from Couture Creations will work just a well. I used some water soluble markers to colour the cardstock, but again crayons, inks and ager colour pencils will work just as well for this also. I chose three colours Pink, purple and silver. One the car stock is coloured add a few squeezes of your Glitzin Glamour glitters over the top. 

Use your Couture creations embossing stylus to spread out the glitter glues and blend them into each other. Set these aside to dry. 

I cut a few Ruler prints from my Couture Creations Sew Job patterned Paper pad, and gathered some embellishments. Don't for get your glittered Peacock Delight feathers. Layer these up on your tag as desired and adhere with your Couture Creations 3D glue dots and high tack foam tape. 

As a final touch, add some highlights with your Glitzin Glamour Glitter and sprinkle around some Couture Creations Gems or Pearls. 

Thanks for stopping by to have a look at this tag project, I would love the hear if you made one of your own inspired by this. You could always show us your take on this at the Couture Creations Facebook page. We'd love to see it.
