MAGICAL SNOW TAG

This is my second tag I did for the Gecko Galz 24 tags of Christmas and I tried a new and fun technique I hope you might try your hand at.



PRODUCTS USED

Gecko Galz From Russia With Love Collage Sheet
Large Shipping Tag
Printed Tissue Paper by Recollections
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sapphire Blue and Gold
Ranger Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo and Black Soot
Stampabilities "Joy" Stamp
UTEE by B& J Art Stamps in Chunky Gold
Glossy accents
Smooch inks in Molasses, Pool, Pearl and Gold
Card stock in teal
Ribbon
beaded trim
and flower


HOW TO MAKE TAG

Take your tag and using ink blending tool cover top with your ranger inks. next cut a piece of tissue that measures 1" larger all the way around and crumple then start adhering it to the top of the tag using liquid adhesive (you want some of the part sticking up). Next take your Glimmer mist and spray onto tissue paper lightly, if you get a large spot wipe with paper towel. Let this dry for 30 minutes. While it drys cut out your image from the collage sheet (I enlarged to 5x3.5) and back with teal card stock. Next along the outer edge add glossy accents then sprinkle with UTEE and heat to create a vintage metal look to outer edge. Stamp with your Joy Stamp using your black ink and let dry. Now take your piece of beaded trim and using double sided tape adhere to the back bottom edge of tag. Then adhere image to center of tag at an angle and paint image in spots with your Smooch inks (this will create an inlay look so it resembles a Russian box). Pull ribbon through hole and place flower over hole.


Have a happy scrappy day

HOW TO MAKE TAGS
Start by inking entire tag with your blending tool using your green in.  Next layer on piece from 7 gypsies paper and use back side to cut numbers to make top band. Then cut out your bingo card from the Gecko Galz collage sheet and adhere red line tape to the side and bottom on back side remove and create a pocket. fussy cut Santa and then place on right side of bingo pocket using pop dots.
