Tags using Hero Arts Color Layering For You Flowers


Hi friends! I’m back with some super fun tags; there are several layers so I considered those layers my embellishments. 😀 I didn’t want to make them too bulky by adding much more to them.

Hero Arts Monthly Challenge

I started by stamping the 3rd layer of the For You Color Layering flower in Versamark and embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum. I also stamped a couple leaves in the lower corner of each tag. I initially applied a water color layer using Zig Clean Color Brushes but it was just too soft, so I let them dry then added more rich red color using the Zig brushes directly to the paper. I added a wee bit of green to the leaves. I added a couple layers of wash using two brown Zig brushes for a bit of a vintage look.




I topped each tag with some ‘newspaper like’ designer paper I had on hand, then sponged the edges with Old Paper distress ink. I spritzed each with sparkle shimmer mist – impossible to see in the photos, but it’s there and oh so sparkly! I then added a layer of red to the back of each tag so you can include a message or a name, tied on a layer of vellum stamped and embossed with the word JOY using ribbon and twine.

Thanks for popping in, don’t forget to join our challenge this month!
