step by step tutorial - TAG

Hello there, happy Sunday !
I would like to present you my first step by step tutorial, it took some times to put pictures together but I think the instructions are  clear and easy to follow.  
step by step tutorial below:

You need:
-watercolor card
- brusho powders ( I used Yellow, Lemon, Orange and Leaf Green)
- big background stamp ( by imagination Craft)
- grey or black ink ( I used versafine)
- distress ink
- gold paint ( I used a starlight paint by Imagination Crafts)
- bauble stencil and stippling brush ( or sponge)
- black card for matting, ribbon ( optional) and double sided adhesive tape 

     Step 1: use watercolor paper and brusho powders in desired colours.
TIP: if you don’t have a watercolor card you can use regular card, brusho powder won’t ‘move around’ as on watercolor card but you still get an unique design.

   Step 2: sprinkle brusho powder onto the card

Step 3: spray the water onto the card

Step 4: keep adding water until you get the design want

Step 5: add a different  brusho powder ( optional)

Step 6: dried design will look a bit different from wet one. TIP: always work on bigger card than you need for your project, you can then cut out the piece of card you like.

Step 7: Cut the tag shape, simple cut the two top corners off. Stamp the side of the tag with big background stamp. TIP: you can use small stamps if you don’t have a one big stamp, I used grey ink as I did not want the sharp look. If you want the words to stand out a bit more use a black ink.

Step 8: I used a matching distress ink to create faded bauble pattern, the more random the better J

Step 9: Using the same bauble stencil I used gold starlight paint in random places again. Stippling brush is the best to use but if you don’t have one use a makeup sponge.

Step 10: use the same distress ink on edges

step 11: stamp the desired words on the separate card.  TIP: you can use any words stamp. Using single letter stamps allow to stamp any word you need.

Step 12: mat the tag on the black card and add cut out words

                                                   Add the ribbon if desired

Hope you enjoy my step by step tutorial.

Happy crafting to you all...
