Tags with Black background

Hello friends! Today I’ll be making these gorgeous tags with a black background colored using Lindy’s Starbursts and embossing powder.

I prepared two tags in advance and covered them with black gesso. I arranged and chose the embellishments and decor to use.

Part of the texture on the tag is made by adding some die cuts and more texture is added using a stencil and a 3D gloss gel.

While the gel is wet, I sprinkled embossing powder onto the gel, I chose two colors: Weeping Willow Green,and Stardust Candy Rose.   

Further, I also used these shades in some elements of the decor, but this is not in the photo.

I had to bake the powder for a long time and carefully. First, you need to warm at a great distance so that the gel dries out a little, and after that, move closer to bake the powder itself. The main thing is not to hold the hairdryer in one place for too long, or the gel will swell.

I painted the tags and some of the clay embellishments with sprays:  Wild Honeysuckle Coral  and Ramblin ‘Rose Pink and thoroughly dried with hot air.

I did the same with Mad Hatter Mint Spray.

To finish I added Frozen Jack Frost Shimmer Spray.

Then I mixed the sculpted gel and Glittering Gold shaker.

With the resulting paint, I tinted all the clay embellishments and tags with a semi-dry brush.

With the remaining paint, I painted the carved frames.

I really love layered compositions, so I used a lot of embellishments and was sure to cover the chipboard with embossing powders. Next, I added three colors of powder on a different elements: Oom Pah Pah Pink,

Merci Beaucoup Mint  and

Golden Angel Wings.

As the last step, I glued all the elements onto the tags. Let’s take a closer look:
