Gone Artsy Tutorial

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

As you will now I am on the design team of Gone Artsy and as part of my role I do live Ustream tutorials.
For my second tutorial I was asked to show how I embellish my cards etc.

The link if you wish to watch is here.

This is my second card which is a tag card.

Step by Step

1. I cut out to pieces of cream pearlescent card 5 x 10 inches and scored from the top at 2 inches. I then adhered the two pieces together and cut the top to form the shape of a tag.
2. I matted and layered papers from Kraftyhands Femme Fatale and Emporium of Curiosities, distressed the edges with Vintage Photo.
3. I painted the inside of a bottle with black acrylic paint and adhered to the card and inserted the feather with Pinflair, I then adhered the cork stopper to the side of it.
4. The sentiment ticket I cut out and distressed and attached to the base. I used metal leave and 3 pink roses to decorate.
5. The heart doily I distressed with Vintage Photo and added the topper over. The lace at the bottom has been distressed with Tattered Rose and I attached to small pink roses.
6. To finish off I added cream and brown organza ribbon to the top of the tag card.
