I made these for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Be sure to stop by the blog and see the other wonderful creations the DT has been making.
In the one you see here I used colors that reminded me of a sunset. I placed a stencil over the tag and rubbed away some of the crayon using an almost dry baby wipe.
I buy the cheapest baby wipes I can find. They tend to be rough and pretty dry(not exactly what you'd want to use on a baby's bottom, but awesome for crafting). For the final step on the tag I added speckles of black and gold paint. I also used some gold paint and just smeared it with my fingers.
Obviously, this is a close up of one of the other tags, but you can see the speckles.
I took one of the bird nests from the For the Birds set. I inked the top part using brown Distress inks. The bottom piece is embossing using Emerald Creek's San Tropez Tan.
I cut out a vintage lady and plopped her in the nest. I decided the tag needed a bit more interest so I used a stencil and distress crayon to make the tracks down the side. Once the sentiment was added I randomly scribbled around on the tag.
I decided she needed some friends so I made a couple more tags using the same technique and different bits of the For the Birds set.
This one used the San Tropez Tan on the top and I ran my Distress Crayons over it to make it darker in areas.
I hope you like the girls and try to make some of your own!
