How to dress up your Die Cuts




Hi Chris here and today I am sharing this tag I created using some these amazing die cuts from Sin City Stamps.


Supplies needed for this project include:
Sin City Stamps Supplies
Anime Fairies 2 Stamp Set
Pattern 2 Stencil 
Around the House Die Cuts
Light Pink Sheer Ribbon
Mixed Flatback Embellishments (little flower)

Other Supplies: Pacon Mixed  Media Paper, Tim Holtz Sizzix #8 Tag, Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Victorian Velvet, Core'dinations Tim Holtz Card Stock, Liquid Pearls, Gesso, Gold Sharpie, Pebbles-accent greeting, ColourArte-Twinkling H2Os - Black Cherry, Beacon Fabric Tac, Toule Netting










After die cutting my tag from the mixed media paper, I gently inked my tag using my Pattern 2 Stencil .















I then stamped over the stencil using my Anime Fairies 2 Stamp Set. I then matted my tag on cardstock and set aside while I dressed up my die cut.






When I started, my background of the die cut was blue like this 








I added Gesso to the blue die cut to make the chair white.  I then added a color wash using ColourArte-Twinkling H2Os - Black Cherry.  After drying,  I  added the overlay.  









To dress up the die cut even more I added some "rivets" on the arm of my chair using a gold sharpie.  I then added some "buttons" to the chair back using liquid pearls.  








I then added my chair to my tag and topped my tag off with a double bow (a smaller bow placed on top of the larger netting bow), and added a Mixed Flatback Embellishments (little flower) on top of the double bow. I added a sticker quick greeting and viola!  all done.
