Blowing Bubbles Tags with Heather Thompson

Hello Again,

I would love to share a fun tag set I made for Creative Embellishments based off Andy Skinners April mood board. I love the new Blowing Bubbles stamp and wanted to make some tags that are bright and fun!

I started with the base tags using two larger ones from the Tags Set. I applied a layer of white paint. The rice paper is a good thickness but I wanted these to be bright. Using the Rice Paper and matte varnish I adhere the Rice Paper down. I use sandpaper to trim the edges of the paper, it gives it a rough look. Once dry I used the distress crackle stamp on the background.


Using a Halftone Circle Stamp, I added a bit more details on the background.







I added some French fancy Rub-ons to the background and got out some old antique paper. I stamped the image on the paper and once the ink was dry I added a layer of crackle medium to the blowing bubbles.

Using the Fun Eggs I took the tree primary colours and blending the paint with a sponge. I




Once every thing was dry, I too, some liquid glass and added a to each of the stamped bubbles. That medium does take a few hours to dry.

I added a spring sentiment and then glued everything down. A small little flower cluster and the spring tags are pretty much done other than some shadowing around the chipboard and edges.



Here is a short video of the process of the tags. Enjoy! and don’t forget to subscribe.



Thank you for stopping by today.
