Floral Tag with Die Cut Foil

There is a new format for the challenges over on Tag It Tuesday this year. There are four techniques, of which two are the minimum and two colours of which one must be used. This month’s techniques are: Add aluminium foil, use a white crayon to resist ink, add paint using the edge of a card to make lines, add a piece of fabric. This month’s colours are blue and Forest Green. I used both colours and three of the techniques.
I started by adding the top layer of a piece of paper towel with Forest Moss and Fossilized Amber ink on it to a #8 manilla tag, sealed it with matte medium and dried thoroughly.
Next, I tore off a second layer and added it in the same way at the top.
Next, I added flower stems and grass using Olive Green Light and Permanent Green Light Amsterdam acrylic paint and the edge of an old season card.
For one of the flower heads, I used the smallest Heart Blossom Picot Flower die to cut aluminium foil. I also cut a couple of the smallest Stellar Blooms Picot Flowers in the same way.
I added alcohol inks (Indigo and Sail Boat Blue) to the foil.
To attach the flower heads to the tag, I used double sided tape behind the centres only.
Fabric flowers were added to the centre of each foil flower using brads.
To finish, I added several of Barbara’s Word stickers.
