Hey Everyone!! It's Elina here with another inspiration post for the Feeling Sketchy blog.
For this post, I decided to use Ranger Foil Tape sheets to create a tag.
I recently purchased a set of these Foil Tape sheets from Michael's and couldn't wait to use them.
I watched a tutorial on YouTube on how to emboss and add color to these sheets using alcohol inks.
So I decided to give it a try.
I was pleased with how easy it was to add color and emboss it.
You could also stamp and paint these sheets as well , so the possibilities are endless.
Here is a list of the supplies I used and a step by step photo representation of the process:
- Ranger Foil Tape Sheets- 6 x 12"
- Manila Tag- 2 1/4 x 5 1/4"
- Adirondack Alcohol Inks- Any color of your choosing (I used Wild Plum and Butterscotch for this tag)
- Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder
- Heidi Swapp Chipboard Elements- Butterflies
- 7 Gypsies Pyramid Studs
- Stamper's Anonymous, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ransom Alpha Parts
To start off, I traced the manila tag onto the foil sheet with a stylus and cut it out.
I used a hole punch to punch out the hole on the top.
And then, I moved on to the embossing and coloring.
This is the tag after I embossed and colored it.
I love the deep impression you get with these Foil Sheets and it takes color well.
I dabbed on my alcohol inks and was able to build up the color to make it more vibrant.
Once I had the coloring finished, I used my heat tool to set it, removed the paper backing to expose the adhesive and attached it to the manila tag.
To embellish the tag, I added a few butterflies, the sentiment "Life, Love", some pyramid studs and pearls.
And ta-da tag complete!!
I hope you enjoyed this project and got inspired!!
Enjoy your day!! :)
