With Valentine's Day just around the corner my crafty thoughts have been about hearts, flowers and lace. I tend to understate the feminine for this holiday, so I decided it was time to treat myself to a girly tag!

Start with a prepared tag base (gesso, spritzed, etc.) and then add a doily, patterned papers, etc. until you like the layers. (To see how I prepare my tag bases click here.) Use the Enamel Powder Adhesive and randomly dab the tag, then sprinkle on some Aged White Enamel Powder. Gently turn the tag over to release most of the powder. Sprinkle more enamel powder, if necessary to achieve the look you want. Carefully heat from underneath until the powder melts.

Emboss the heart (A1114) with the Aged White Enamel. Next adhere a label holder using brads and adhere the heart inside of the holder to a popped up circle of cardstock using Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze.

I used the Glastique to adhere the Medium Flourishes Accents (A139) and then using the Fine Line Applicator Tip I covered the flourishes with a thin layer to deepen their natural color and give them a bit of shine. Be sure to let this dry before moving on to the next step.

Use the Glastique to adhere the flowers. Use the Fine Line Applicator tip to apply tiny drops to the flower petals. Let dry.

Using a foam blending tool, distress the edges of the tag using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The finishing touch to this tag are the gold accents! Using an old brush paint the edges of the tag and the label holder using the Satin Gold 3D Enamel Gel. The Distress Ink will soften and the tag will look aged and gilded. Gorgeous!

The sentiment I printed and cut up, distressed the edges and glued to the tag. I used Glastique and a brush to paint a thin layer over the words. LOVE how the inked edges soften and the paper wrinkles ever so slightly.

Add some fiber and tulle to the top.

That's it for now!

Inky hugs,
