Cupic Love Tag Tutorial

Hi today I thought I would share a little step by step tutorial of a little tag I created with you all...

Begin with the Scrap FX BookPlate and give it a coat of white Gesso

Once dry use the Scrap FX leafy swirls stencil and spread a thin layer of Helmar Acid Free Glue over the selected portion of the stencil and then carefully remove the stencil. Make sure you immediately wash your stencil to remove the Helmar Acid Free Glue before it dries...

Heat the Helmar Acid Free Glue stenciled pattern with a heat gun. Heating the glue will cause it to bubble up and set, creating great texture but keeping your nice stencil pattern. 

Spray your tag with a couple of different colour sprays, and dry with a heat gun.

Using your finger apply gilding wax over your stenciled Helmar Acid Free Glue, to highlight it further. 

Apply gilding wax to a Scrap FX‘love’ title (from the Love words fancy set

Finally, using Helmar glues, adhere the embellishments onto the tag base. Use the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere the resin cherub and the fabric flower and doily. Use the Helmar Acid Free Glue to adhere the Scrap FX ‘love’ title.

Insert a couple of heart pins behind the flower...a little tip; apply a tiny bit of Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive onto the point of the pins before inserting them to ensure they stay in place.
Finally attach a few dangly pearls/bling, and a bit of ribbon in the top to finish off your tag.  

till next time, 
happy creating
