Celebration... by Stephanie

Hey y'all! Stephanie here from hot and humid west Tennessee! For our Fourth of July/Canada Day theme I created three patriotic USA tags. I had so much fun using Emerald Creek embossing powders to make this project extra special!

Below are the Emerald Creek products I used for the tags:

I stamped the patriotic images on scrap watercolor paper with embossing ink and promptly added Patina OxideAncient Amber and Dirty Sand to the stamped images.  Added a little heat and watched the magic happen. I watercolored the stamped images with distress inks. 

I also embossed the embroidered trim used on the Statue of Liberty tag. You can see it in the image below. It was first covered with Vintage Beeswax and then randomly added Patina Oxide to the mix. I had previously colored papers with distress inks for the base of the tags. 

To finish the tags I just arranged them and adhered with glue dots and pop dots for dimension. Some red, white and blue ribbons adorn the top and accented with Emerald Creek Circle Dot Brads

I absolutely love how beautifully these turned out! The edges of the tags are embellished with coordinating Emerald Creek embossing powders. Just for the record Patina Oxide is PERFECT for the Statue of Liberty! 

Dirty Sand on the flag added just the right amount of texture and gave it a vintage feel. I hope you enjoyed the tags as much as I enjoyed creating them.
