"For you" Color Me Tag
By Susan Cobb
Designer Tip: This time I mixed raspberry and pebble ink for a lovely plum color, in two shades; for the darker plum shade, I used 3 drops raspberry and 4 drops pebble ink and blended it onto the paper with the applicator dampened with blending solution. For the lighter shade, use less ink and several drops of blending solution. I covered the tag with the inked paper.
- Cover a manila shipping tag with Color Me Glossy Flourish paper, trimming the edges evenly with the tag. Dampen an applicator felt with blending solution, then add 3 drops of raspberry ink and 4 drops of pebble ink and blend it onto the paper with the dampened applicator, mixing the colors for a dark plum color.
- Cut loosely around a small butterfly and color it with the same ink mixture. Use a paper towel moistened with blending solution to remove excess color from the white design.
- Loosely cut around the border and small tag. Use less ink and several drops of blending solution on an applicator felt to achieve a lighter shade of plum for the border and small tag. Punch a hole at the top of the small tag, tie with ribbon and Zot to the top of the large tag.
- Glue the border across the center of the large tag and foam tape the center of the butterfly to the border as shown. Cut a small tag from white cardstock, then write or computer print "For you" on it, glue to the small inked tag.
