Embossed Tag Art Technique

Your Art Journey starts at Red Lead!

Products used for this Art Technique:
# 8 manilla tags,  clear embossing powder,  clear embossing ink pad,  Red Lead Script Scroll Statement rubber stamp, Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress ink pad,  Timber Brown Staz On ink pad,  Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink pad,  Red Lead ATC Distressed Scroll rubber stamp,  Red Lead ATC script rubber stamp,  K and Co. Emphemera Pack,  Red Lead Collage Sheet Ancestors 37,   Red Lead True Friends word rubber stamp.

Ink stamp with clear embossing pad and stamp.  Reink and stamp top of tag.  Emboss with a heat tool. Colorize with worn lipstick distress pad.
Then place newpaper on top and iron...the embossing powder will melt creating the coolest interesting look!  You can either use a home iron set on medium or a craft iron. (might as well use the home iron for something, huh?!  I like to do several embossed tags at once so that I'm set for coloring and embellishing.  Years ago we called this batik backgrounds!  Very cool and an easy artful background!

Begin by overstamping tag using vintage photo on left with Red Lead's script background atc stamp.  Overstamp right side of tag using timber brown with red Lead's distressed scroll atc stamp.  You will love the way your tag already looks!  Ink the edges with worn lipstick and then go over it with the vintage photo ink.  I love the way the worn lipstick looks more aged and rosy when you reink ink it.  Cut out these 3 cute little girls and glue them to the bingo card from the ephemera pak.  Remember to reink the tag edges after you add the collage images and ephemera.  Stamp true friends and then glue all to the tag!  Add the #3 and you have the sweetest easy altered vintage tag to give or to keep!  What true friend wouldn't love getting this altered vintage technique tag!
