Felling Regal Tags with Metallic Stains

Hi Dreamers!
Happy Friday!  Let the weekend begin.  I think I will take a few hours this weekend and finish up some Halloween cards.  But, today, I have two tags that I made while experimenting with my new Metallic Distress Stains.  Very fun!  The stains are very shimmery and lustrous.  I paired them with metallic ribbons, glitter glue, and stamping.

Tag # one - Royal Damask :

Materials List:
Feeling Regal from Blockheads Stamps
Flowers-Daisy (For You sentiment)
Black Pigment Colorbox
Tuxedo Black Dye Memento
Metallic Distress Stains
Tarnished Brass
Antiqued Bronze
Black Embossing Powder
Cream and Wine  CS
Glitter glue

Apply the Metallic stain to a tag cut from cream CS. Dry the stain.  Stamp the large Damask stamp with Black Pigment ink and heat emboss with black powder.

Add ribbons to the side and through the hole of the tag.  Add some gold pearls.  Stamp the sentiment on wine cs.  Cut out and tie to ribbon.

Tag # Two - Crown Border

Make tag in same manner as above.  Stamp with Tuxedo dye ink.  

 Add metallic ribbons and glitter glue.

Of course I went crazy stamping with my new "Feeling Regal" stamp set and have several more projects to share with you.  I will post more over the next few days.  I also have lots of Halloween fun that I will post on Sundays through out October.  So, stayed tuned for all that fun stuff!
