Bee-ing Happy Tag

by Chris Hennen


I began by painting a greyboard tag with distress paint in wild honey. I then rubbed metalic gold paint thru some sequin waste all over the tag.

I added a large die cut grungy grid piece i made with black card stock to the middle of the tag. I added some die cut cogs along the bottom of the tag which i made from black card stock rubbed with Deco Art extreme sheen metallic paint

I took some of the stamps from the IndigoBlu kit, numbers and honeycomb and randomly stamped around the die cuts with black stazon ink.

I cut one of the sentiments from the patterned paper in the IndigoBlu kit, Bee Happy, matted it on black cardstock, distressed it and added it to the bottom of the die cut grid. i also added a small sentiment sticker too.

Next i cut my Bee from white Card stock, coloured it with the gold paint through sequin waste again before adding it to the tag. Once dry, i covered the whole tag with Pentart decoupage varnish and added ribbons to the tag to finish.
