Inspiration Project for Imagination Crafts

Hi again,

For February's Imagination Crafts "INSPIRATION" post Iv'e made some tags using inks, stamps, stencils and Sparkle Medium.

I love the grungy, vintage look so decided to go all out to make these using most of my Imagination craft stash.  I just kept adding inks of various colours to the tags. I then embossed the stamped image (Bird of Paradise) on each tag with Black Embossing powder.  Then using the stencil - "Heart Leaf", I dabbed a Clear Embossing Pad through the stencil and brushed on some Imagination Craft Mica powders. Sparkle Medium was also added, spread through the "Heart Leaf" stencil again to complete each tag and to add some bling.

Something a bit different and useful at the same time. These would look great if you stamped your own wrapping paper with the Bird of Paradise Stamp in all the colours that you used on the tag to match the parcel to the greeting.
