Follow Your Heart

I love making tags because you can create them with a lot of color and texture.

The Butterfly Die was a perfect addition to the front of my tag.  I cut that out in white and then inked the edges with Hero Arts Butter Bar Ink and then added a flower from my huge stash.

For the base I added Hero Arts Orange Soda Ink, Butter Bar and Bubble gum onto my silicon mat and then sprayed it with water and spreed the colors around.  I then placed the tag onto the colors and made sure that it covered the whole tag.  I dried it with my heat gun.

Then I used my favorite stencil, Hero Arts Leaf and Flourish and used Orange soda, Butter Bar, Bubble Gum Ink and a sponges to transfer that stencil pattern onto my tag.  I started at the top and worked my way down changing the colors so it was dark at the top and light at the bottom. I then used Wet Cement with the same stencil and just added some leaves to it.  I used some stamps from Hero Arts 19th Century French Script with the same ink pads to add some depth to the card.

I heat embossed the Follow Your Heart with Gold embossing powder to the bottom corner.  Then I added some “stitching” with a fine black pen.  Then I put it all together.
