Tando Creative 24 Play Days- Fiona Randall

Hello !
Welcome to my step by step tutorial to create this Grungy Butterfly Tag.
Step 1.

Start with laying your grey board tag on a piece of 300gsm cardstock and cut around it using a craft knife. You will end up with a tag shape piece of card as pictured. punch a hole with a hole punch.

Step 2.
Apply DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Titanium white  ( or any white acrylic paint in your stash) with a sponge to your chosen background stamp.
Step 3.
Press the cardstock tag onto the stamp, run fingers over the back of the tag. Move tag around several times applying more paint to stamp as required until tag is covered. Dry with a heat tool.
Step 4.
Mist Tag with water and spray with distress spray stain in frayed burlap. Blot with kitchen towel and then dry with a heat tool.
Step 5.
Apply Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Weathered wood to opposite corners as shown with an ink blending tool. The Acrylic paint acts as a resist to the distress ink. Wipe over lightly with a baby wipe to reveal more of the paint stamp background. Dry with a heat tool.
Step 6.
Define edges by applying Walnut Stain distress ink with an ink blending tool.
Step 7.
Apply walnut stain distress ink to the edges of your grey board tag.
Step 8.
Glue your cardstock tag to the grey board tag and roll over with a brayer to make sure everything is firmly adhered.
Step 9.
Apply two strips of Washi Tape to the side of the tag as shown.
Step 10.
Apply vintage photo and weathered woo distress ink  directly to the Tando Thins as shown. Using your background stamp again apply stamping to the diamonds with walnut stain distress ink.
Step 11.
Take a length of string and pull apart to create thin string fibres as shown.
Step 12.
Stamp your chosen butterfly stamp onto 300gsm cardstock with Versafine ink in Onyx Black.
Colour the butterfly with vintage photo and weathered wood distress inks with a water brush and dry with a heat tool. Apply a layer of embossing ink over the whole butterfly with a versa mark ink pad. Sprinkle on  clear embossing powder and heat with a heat tool until melted creating a glossy finish and sealing the distress ink in place.
Step 13.
Apply foam pads to the diamond thins and apply to the tag base. Glue the circle thins on top of the diamonds.  Add your string fibres with a touch of glue. Shape the wings of the butterfly before gluing on top of the string fibres. Finally  apply the numbers to the tag from Andy Skinners Mixed Media Transfer set Poe Diversity to finish.
Thanks for stopping by I hope I have Inspired you to give this a go.
