MinI Tag by Sue Butler

Hello Friends

As you know the Christmas papers and elements are now arriving in store, and I have already been spending some of Rob's hard earned cash!!! He loves me what can I say.
I do enjoy making Christmas projects and this Tag will look wonderful on a Christmas parcel.

I chose to work with these three items. 

 I painted up some Card stock in brilliant Blue dye inks and dry embossed with a
 Tim Holtz texture fade.
The Flourish die has been heat embossed with the
 Ranger enamelware and I also cut the small Memory Box pinwheel flower.

I decided to diecut the embossed card with SB labels seventeen
after the embossing, this was not a problem because the e-bosser works it's magic and does not flatten out the embossing.
I also dabbed some Gesso on top, because I wanted more texture on the background.
Look at the difference it has made. 

I found this twirly bit and trim in my scraps box, the trim was painted in silver and then dabbed with Black Acrylic, it resembles metal don't you think?
 I cannot remember how I cut the twirl, it is obviously part of a cut up flourish, it is amazing what you can do with scraps, especially on a little project such as this.

And just one more technique, tinting White seam binding using diluted distress stains.

Now look through your scrap box and make a personal mini Tag for that special person.
