Crinkly Tag

Good Evening
I want to share with you one of the samples I made for the January Claritystamp Show.
I started off with a tag made out of artboard. I had some brown packing paper which I had saved and I scrunched up a piece then covered the tag with PVA glue and pushed it onto the paper. I then made sure the paper was stuck to the edges and I trimmed off the excess. I then left it to dry.
Next I used the petal stencil and some grunge paste and added some petals to the top and bottom corners. Once this was dry I used gilding wax and rubbed over the surface of the tag. This picked up the crinkles in the paper really well! I also rubbed the stencil petals with the gilding wax.

For the flowers I stamped and embossed 2 different petals 5 times each and the butterfly twice onto craft card. I cut these out then made 2 flowers and layered up the butterfly. I attached these to the tag and added a small metal dragon fly and a die cut flourish. A couple of self adhesive gems and a small sprig of pearl stems finished it off.

Made a change from just doing a card!

I hope you like it! 
Happy Crafting!
