True North

Hello fellow Crafters,

I watched a YouTube film last night about making a vintage tag {} by "Dancinggirlart"  and tried to replicate it today although I didn't have the same materials. My version looks like this :

I started with a #8 tag and put the Harlequins on it with a Dylusions stencil and red acrylic paint. I then put some gold paint over the harlequins. After that I put DI on the tag, Walnut stain on the top and Vintage Photo on the bottom. I used a blender tool. After that was done I dripped some water on it and dried it with my heat tool. When it was dry I stamped the polkadots with Versamark and then embossed them with gold embossing powder. I tried to make them look distressed by rubbing black ink over them but the result is  not as nice as the one from "Dancinggirlart".
The stamp is from Paperartsy designed by Lynne Perella and I coloured some bit of it and then clear embossed it. The True North is from the same stampset and was stamped with DI in Barn Door and clear embossed.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it.......


  1. Love vintage, Corrie, so absolutely love this tag!! Remarkable how much each layer builds not only texture but interest, as well! Beautifully done!

  2. That's a great tag Corrie !! I love it, and you're lucky to have this wonderful PaperArtsy plate, it's so beautiful ! :) Enjoy your week-end, Coco xx
