Butterfly Tag

Hello  & Good Morning!!!

Firstly wish you all Happy Independence Day...

This is Gopi here and today’s project showcase few wonderful products available at Itsy Bitsy – Studio G Markers, Kraft Embellishments, Clear Stamps & Cardstock

So lets get started...

I have used Kraft CS & White CS for the base of the tag. Kraft CS size: 3 ¼’ x 6 ¼’ and the white CS size: 3’ x 6’.
Firstly I scribbled the Pink & Wine (just 2-3 strokes) markers on my craft sheet and mist water to it. 

Then laid the white cardstock into the colour and made sure the entire tag is coloured pink. Lastly used the hest gun to dry the colour.

The same process was repeated using the Yellow, Forest & MidNight marker and heat set after every layer.

Next, using a script clear stamp (from my stash) & blackarchival, I randomly stamped the tag.
Then using the Script stencil added a little more element to the tag. This was done by scribbling the marker on the craft sheet and using a felt piece picked the colour and apply it to the tag through the stencil.

Thereafter white gesso was sprinkled using a painting brush.

The edges of the tag were distressed using a scissor and highlighted with the yellow marker.

The sentiment used is from the the clear stamp set - Love Sentiments and was stamped using black archival ink. Each word was then cut and edged using the light pick marker.

The tag was then attached to the Kraft CS base using tacky tapes. To embellish the tag, kraft embellishment – glitter butterflies was used.

While sticking the butterflies, golden thread is used to highlight the tag. 

Lastly sentiments were added to the tag using double sided tape.

To give a finishing touch to the tag, a coordinating ribbon along with the golden thread is attached.

Overall it was such a fun creating this tag. The studio Gmarkers are very smooth to use. They come in 2 variants – Bullet tip (thick & strong tip) & Brush tip (soft)

Do try out the products and the techniques used here and post your creations.
