Keep Calm by Sioux Jenneys

I'm back again and here to share a tag card with you :)

1. I cut two tags from 250gm cartridge paper and used Distress Ink Victorian velvet, faded jeans and broken china on my craft sheet for the background colours. The remains of which were used to colour the other side of the tags a lighter shade.

2. Stamped two of the butterflies from Insects & butterflies 1 in Distress Ink pumice stone and also the calligraphic mat 13 in the same colour in a random fashion before adding the words from the Dance plate in Archival aquamarine and some random stamping of the label from ephemaera 1 plate. in Victorian velvet.

3. Stamped the Keep Calm in Archival aquamarine too and the lovely crown from Crowning glory  in Archival black....with some more random calligraphic mat 13 in pumice stone and again on the reverse sides of each tag too.

4. The front has an oval cartouche stamped with the same crown and the calligraphic mat 13 in Distress Victorian velvet. I roughly cut a smaller oval to attach some tissue tape to and adhered the stamped oval on top with silicone glue.

5. The two tags were fixed together using tissue tape as a hinge....the outside was just a straight piece but I decided to give the inside an added touch by folding the tape back on itself every so often.

6. Some raffia completed the tag card.

Don't forget that tissue tape is on offer this month would not want to miss a good deal would you?

See you again at the beginning of October! Happy Stamping ;)
xoxo Sioux
