Shabby Chic Tags-Tag Swap

Swapped Group Tags

These are the tags I made for the monthly tag swap that I'm involved in at my local scrapbook store.
The theme for February was Shabby Chic.
I've wanted to try this Gesso and spray technique for a while so this was a fun one to do!
I began by cutting out the dies from chipboard and gathered a plethora of  flowers, beads, lace, paper doilies, charms,buttons, and pins.
 I glued everything onto Prima tags with podgy and fabric tac. When the glue was dry I gave everything a good solid coat of Gesso.
Then the fun began!
 When the Gesso had dried I sprayed the tags with an assortment of spay ink.
I used watered down Dyllusion colors and used my heat tool to speed up the drying between spraying each color.
I also used the spray inks on the seam binding which I tied through the TH hinge clips. Those metal clips colored up really great after they were covered with the Gesso.
The Bliss sentiment came from a SU set.
I thought this would make a great Wedding gift tag so I also added oval silver charms I had picked up from Michaels' a couple of years ago, that are engraved with."To Love And To Cherish".
Check out the group tags! I love them all!
The theme for March is Quirky so I'm doing some brainstorming for that one.
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
