Today is the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey. I hope you will stop by to see all the great things the Creative Guides have made to inspire you. You can see it all by CLICKING HERE. Our challenge this time was "Melt It".
I made a simple yet colorful tag and used embossing powder in two different ways as my "Melt It" object.
This a rather simple tag with lots of color.
I began with a manila tag, then added Distress Oxide Inks, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade,
and Wild Honey.
I stamped on the phrase and little butterfly from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Plant, Grow & Bloom stamp set using VersaMark Ink and then some Bravo Burgundy embossing powder from Stampin' Up.
I cut a Dotted Scalloped Circle, cut in half. It was embossed with Karen Burniston's Butterfly embossing folder(discontinued) and then colored with Wild Honey Distress Oxide and then edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide.
For the butterfly, I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Butterfly 1 die set (discontinued). I colored the solid one with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and the lacey butterfly was covered with VersaMark Ink and then covered with gold embossing powder - heated to melt the powder.
The final step was to layer everything and tie a ribbon on the top.
