Designed by: Keren Baker
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Grafix Craft Plastic Crystal Clear 12” x 12”
Grafix Doubletack Mounting Film 9”x12”
Grafix Black Chipboard
LPC060 & Words 2 I&TD Stamp set (PaperArtsy)
Glossy Accents (Ranger)
Distress Oxide Reinkers in Spun Sugar, Peacock Feathers & Mowed Lawn (Ranger)
White gel pen (Sakura)
Green & Gold microbeads
Black Stazon Ink (Tsukineko) White ink
White tissue paper
1. Using the Craft Plastic and the long stamp, stamp onto the plastic using Stazon ink. Crumple the tissue paper and carefully smooth out leaving wrinkles remaining.
2. Using Glossy Accents, draw a wider rectangle around the reverse of the image and cover the area with a layer of Glossy Accents.
3. Using the Oxide reinkers, add small dots on the Glossy Accent layer, gently spreading it around with a toothpick or similar.
4. Once you’ve got enough of the colour spread, sprinkle on microbeads and carefully lay the tissue over the top, gently pressing it into the wet mixture.
5. Leave the whole piece to dry.
6. Trim the piece down so all edges are sealed. Using Double Tack, trim out a piece a similar size and use it to adhere to a chipboard tag that you’ve cut out.
7. Stamp using white ink onto the bottom left and top right corner. Add some Glossy Accents onto the numbers and sprinkle more microbeads onto it. Leave to dry.
8. Finish the tag with an eyelet, fibres, run a gold pen around the edges and add some faux stitching using a gel pen.
1. Chipboard is easy to cut with a craft knife. Score the line first and then cut a few times to get a clean cut.
2. This technique is ideal with dye ink reinkers but make sure if using the Oxides that you seal the back with more Glossy Accents, glue or Doubletack.
3. Leave the Glossy Accents to dry overnight to ensure everything is dry.
