Tattoo Heart Tag

Hello, Kay M here with today's post. Our theme this month is 'Winging It' so I've had the prefect excuse to use the gorgeous Tattoo Heart Dinkie stamp, as the focal point on this die cut tag.  

For the background I sponged Wilted Violet, Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides over the tag, sprinkled it with water,  dried it off and then repeated the process again.  The tag was repeatedly over stamped with just only one inking of with Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides using the new Collection's Edition stamps, I used No. 2 FrenchScript and No. 4 Numbers.   I went back in with Collection's Edition stamp No. 3 Cross Hatching and stamped around the edges with Ground Espresso Distress ink to create a border. The white lines (using the edge of a Slim Jim) and splatters were made with white GeeSsoGood.

The Tattoo Heart was stamped directly on the tag and again onto a piece white card, I then fussy cut the wings and banner from the white card.  Next I die cut a little heart from card with double sided tape and applied Sheffield Steel MegaFlake.  The sentiment was stamped from Live, Laugh & Love stamp set trimmed and edged with black ink.  All these were adhered to the tag as shown.

 The tag was finished by edging with a black pen and ribbon and charms were added.

I hope you have enjoyed this tag and are inspired to made your own winged creation!

Take care,  Kay M


  1. This is gorgeous Kay and I adore the colour combination and all the background stamping, also the gesso lines and spatters add lots of interest. I love the way you have the white sentiment strips and the wings in white which makes them stand out beautifully, and the gilding flake heart for the metallic look. x

  2. This is gorgeous Kay, love the background and gorgeous heart.
