Dream Tag

Aug 9, 2012

Here is a fun tag to create that is filled with all kinds of little techniques that are perfect to use on other projectsl. I started with a plain manila office tag and covered it with vintage ledger paper. Next, using the Maya Road Ornate Frames stamp set and Jet Black Archival Ink, I stamped the frame images onto the ledger paper. Next I took the new Maya Road Floral Garden Fabric Tape and filled the inside area of the frames. I then accented the flowers with Diamond Stickles and let it dry.
