Stamperia Oriental Garden Tag for The Funkie Junkie Boutique

Hi everyone and welcome. It's the start of a new challenge theme over at the The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog (formerly the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog). It's Ginny's turn to host and this time the challenge is called 'Terrific Tags'. "Add it to a gift, label a homemade tasty treat, or display it with your favorite home decor, tags are not only fun to create they also have a million uses. For this challenge create a tag that's big or small, mixed media or layered, or added to a project as a fabulous focal point. I can't wait to see your creations!"

As ever, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and the next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

For this one I have used Stamperia's new Oriental Garden paper pack to create a vintage style tag with lots of delicate layers.

Before adding any of the gorgeous Oriental inspired paper I began by painting the tag with a base of black gesso followed by Dina Wakley Media Paint in Aloe, sanding it back slightly when dry to match the worn look of Stamperia's designs. The largest piece in the background is actually taken from the front cover - there's no need to waste a scrap of this pack! Texture Paste was then applied through one of Tim Holtz floral stencils before fabric, lace from Linda's store (coloured with more Aloe and Ocean  paints) tea stained copier paper and one of the panels from the paper pack.

After adding one of the circle images from the pack to the centre of the tag it was time to get more texture onto the tag and add some more detail. The lace from Linda's store was coloured with Aloe and Ocean Dina Wakley Media Paints (water it down to get a softer look in keeping with the paper collection). Linda also carries a great range of filigree metal embellishments in her shop and the circular ones fit perfectly with this theme.

The flowers and leaves were die cut using a couple of Tim Holtz Thinlits Die sets - I used paper from the pack for the flowers and painted the leaf stems with a mix of Aloe, Umber and Ancient Dina Wakley Media paints. The tag needed a dimensional focal point so I opted to cover some moldable plastic with red fabric and cut a Tattered Butterfly, shaping it with a heat tool. This was then layered over wire and a word (Dina Wakley Collage Words) and the tag was done!

So that's my take on the theme 'Terrific Tags' for the current The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog challenge. My fantastic team mates have created lots more amazing tags for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE. And remember to link up your own shabby chic or vintage tags to be in with a chance of winning one of the fabulous prizes.
