GD: Kate Yetter Project #3 Grey Board Tag

"Hello all, Kate here welcome back for my last day of working with the amazing Lynne Perrella Stamps! I am in LOVE with this collection because it is everything unique and vintage that I love in a stamp. I am making a tag today so lets get started".

I cut a piece of Smoothy White Stamping Card the same size as my Grey/White Board Heavy and sent it through an embossing folder.

I glued the embossed cardstock down to the Grey/White Board shaped tag.

My image was stamped from the LPC027 and I cut it out and coloured it using Vanilla, Caramel, Orchid, Ice Blue and Bora Bora.

I sprayed the background with yellow, orange and blue ink sprays.

Using my finger, I rubbed the embossed areas with Copper Treasure Gold.

I cut out a gear from the Chatsworth Paper Collection using a Spellbinders Die.

The gear was lightly sprayed with blue ink.

A strip of Chatsworth Paper was torn to fit the height of the tag. PaperArtsy Lace was cut for the top of the tag.

After gluing on the strip of torn paper, I added some gesso with a palette knife over the patterned paper.

I sprayed and dripped some blue ink.

Once dry, I sprayed and dripped red ink. A script stamp was stamped in the background.

I added the gear and doily to embellish then layered the stamped image over the top. I added a layer of Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze over the stamped image to make the colors pop.

Thank you for all your kind comments this week. I hope you feel inspired to join in the weekly challenge. Until next month.


Leandra Says: The build up of layers adds great dimension to the tag, Chatsworth is a real hidden gem to incorporate into projects. Thanks Kate for sharing your process.
