Tsukineko All-Purpose Inks Tag

Create a large tag in cheerful spring colours, using Tsukineko All-Purpose inks. Add a sentiment or leave it with the composition only to make a unique cover for a handmade book

Paint the Tando greyboard piece with the white All-Purpose ink. Repeat to reach the desired result. Let it dry well.

Stamp with the circles stamp and the VersaMark watermark ink, cover with the clear embossing powder and heat set.

Sprinkle a few drops of the Green Apple colour ink and use a straw to blow ink to create “branches”. Dry well.

Repeat the procedure with the Thyme colour ink. Dry well and clean with some paper over the embossed areas.

Use the dots stamp to stamp the bottom part of the greyboard with the Yellow All-Purpose ink and secure while wet with heated clear embossing powder.

Use some white paint to light up the right side of the card for a better contrast with the embellishments.

Paint two large wings white and one medium size butterfly yellow.

Wrap some jute cord around the greyboard base.

Glue the two wings, add the flower stamens and add the butterflies ribbon with some yellow satin ribbon.

Finish with the yellow butterfly.
