Tag 3: black and white

I had a lot of comments about this praying girl. What a sweet little girl! Off course she is perfect for Christmas tags but I can think of other occasions where she could serve as well! She belongs to a stampset from Art Journey.

Ik kreeg veel reakties over dit biddende meisje. Ze is zo ontzettend lief! Natuurlijk past ze prima bij alle kerstkaarten. Maar ik kan ook nog wel andere gebeurtenissen bedenken, waarbij ze ook heel goed tot haar recht komt! Ze komt van een stempellap van Art Journey.

1. Supplies needed. White cardstock, stamps, tag, ranger white gelpen, anti static puff, enbossing powder. Off course heattool, glue, etc.

2. Swipe the anti static puff over the white cardstock. This is very important as you don't want stray specks of transparant (or white) embossing powder!

3. emboss text with transparant (or white if you are using a colored cardstock as background) Wait a few minutes till it cools off completely.

4. Stamp the girl with distress Black Soot half over the embossed text. Swipe carefully the excess black ink from the embossed text. Don't worry if it smears a little. Later on that won't be visible. Emboss girl with transparant powder. The ink is wet enough, if you don't dawdle, to catch the embossing powder.

5. Cut the image to fit your tag. Use inkblending tool to blend Black Soot over the white areas giving a shadow impression and accent the white text. Don't ink over girls face. Stamp text with Black Soot.

6. Blend Black Soot ink over the edges of your tag. Stamp a little fern (or flourish) on the top spot and accent with Ranger White gelpen.

7. Color the Grungeboard N with colorbox frostwhite and emboss with powder several times to get a nice texture. Attach it to the tag with a jumpring. Finish tag with ribbons and add a bit of Stickles crystal to the N.
