“Celebrate” Tag with Creative Embellishments

Another month at Creative Embellishments and another great challenge. This month it is about the sketch challenge, your interpretation. But the twist is to add stamped imaged on the project. I decided to experiment more with the clear tags Nicole has in the store. I learned a technique from Nikki K while I was over in England (when we could travel). I have been wanting to try it on the product in the store to see how it works.

Taking the large clear tag, I started with stamping on the background. I hit the twist straightaway. Using some archival ink and the Grunge Star Corner Stamp, I stamped the centre of the tag.

I added more to the background with the Distress Corner Stamp around the edges. Then this is where the fun begins. I did numerous layers here to get the effect I was looking for, a little crackle, some splashes and the background is done.

Moving on to the focal point. This was simple I didn’t want to take away from the background. I Used the Star Doodle Frame and added some embossing enamel and framed it the some mirrored Acrylic Gold Stars.

Pretty much done other than the Celebrate Title. A pretty simple tag but I really like the over all effect of it.

Here is the inspiration for the month!

I have a short video of the creative process:
