I love making textured and layered tags which are great for adorning a gift bag in lieu of a card.
My tag base is always cardboard from packaging because it holds up better to my "abuse". :)
I had a little "accident" and stained the patterned paper that I had adhered to my tag so I went in with a stencil and textured paste. Which I then decided to paint gold. And when that looked a little too gaudy, I went in to tone it down with some white gesso.
I distressed the edges of a smaller Prima tag to form the base of my focal point. Then I went in with some Maya Road embellishments. And finished my tag with gold glitter ribbon from packaging.
Hope you are having a great week friends! :)
