Another Layout

I like scrapping but never seem to get the time at home , or space. Dont get me wrong i DO have the space a spare double sized bedroom , just there is never any spare/clean surfaces to put anything down as big as 12x12 , im sure a lot of you know what i mean lol.
So this was done were most of my scrapping is done at a crop .

ooooo how nice is this stuff , so nice it's now in the shop , want some here's the link This is a tag made with the Stamp-n-Foil , Stampee Diva made it for a tag swap i was in.She's the wonderfull lady who is responsable for this wonderful Stamp-n-Foil fun Here is how she made it
1. The tags were cut out of a cream colored parchment style card stock.

2. The edges of each tag were aged with a combination of Slate and Meadow Adirondack alcohol inks from Ranger. I just took a few drops of each color on the dabber and added a bit of blending solution. Then I started with the dabber off of the tag and brought the color onto the edges and blended. This gave the tag a nice aged effect that coordinated with the distress technique used to apply the Stamp-N-Foil.

3. Using a large french script stamp inked with Encore gold pigment ink, both from Stampin' Up, I stamped the background image over the whole card.

4. Using the distressed foil technique I applied Stamp-N-Foil in Aquamarine, from, over the entire background image. Note: when the turquoise foil is removed, small areas of gold pigment ink are revealed.

5. After the background was completed I used an embellished Cherish stamp inked with Encore gold pigment ink, both from Stampin' Up, to stamp the image in the top right hand corner of the tag.

6. I then used the distressed foil technique to apply Orange Stamp-N-Foil to the newly stamped image.

7. My tags were ready for swappin'. :)

want to see how it's done well here is the video
