- Prepare your large #10 sized tag background using Dylusions Inks or inks of your choice. Mine was a “mop-up” tag that I blotted up some Dylusions inks from my craft mat. It had some of the tag showing through giving it a nice mottled effect. Once your tag is completely dry, machine emboss it with the Crafter’s Companion Chevron folder. I do all my embossing in my eBosser and it makes the most wonderful deep emboss, even on heavy manila card stock. Just fantastic!
- The #10 tag is longer than the folder, so just turn your tag around and line up the chevrons and emboss the rest. Lay your tag flat and brayer on black ink to make the chevron embossing really pop. I used Archival Jet Black because at the point I was making the tag, I didn’t know if I was finished spraying inks and wanted something that would not react with the water based sprays. But I really liked the outcome as it was after brayering the ink on. Sometimes less is more!
- Stamp the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Natural (cream) card stock and color with Copics. Hand cut the image out and layer on top of a couple vintage playing cards. Stamp the sentiment oval on manila card stock and sponge on Distress Inks. Secure to the top of the tag with some Crinkle Ribbon which has been stained with matching Distress Stains. Add some white doodling to the oval sentiment tag.
