Another beautiful tag with Isa who is showing you a background technique with tissue paper . This works particularly well with those Artemio branches which magically look like trees on Isa's tag.
Let us know what you think in a comment below.
I first cut a tag which I covered with gesso.
I cut a piece of tissue paper about twice the size of my tag and stamped the branches with Versafine black ink.
I covered my tag with glue, pressed (and wrinkled) by stamped tissue on it and added more glue on top, pressing on the folds.
To get a better finish, I don't cut the extra tissue but use a sanding block instead.
I pressed the Distress ink pad on the tag and spread the ink with my finger. Make sure you dry it well with the ink tool.
I used the black Copic marker to outline the tag.
For the faux-jar, I cut a circle with a Spellbinder die, cut the top off , inked everything up and glued the cut part down again
Add the fabric flowers (Isa explained on her blog how to make them yesterday) and the Chinese coins and you have a beautiful tag.
