Sending You Hugs

Hello there, today I have a tag to share using the Beautiful Day Agapanthus stamp set from Hero Arts. It is made so that you would stamp the agapanthus flower head on to the stems, but I thought it would like nice at the bottom of a tag, as a design element too.

I started off by die cutting a Tag Infinity Die from Dove White Cardstock. I then stamped the agapanthus head from the Beautiful Day Agapanthus set on to the bottom portion of the tag with Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. Using a blending brush, I applied Wilted Violet Distress Ink on to the bottom of the tag to resist the embossing powder.
I tried to keep the darker colour at the bottom, blending up towards white. I then flicked on some water and set aside to dry. I took the sentiment from the Hello Stamp & Cut set and stamped this twice on to Pitch Black Cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. These were then cut in to strips. I stamped it twice so that it was easier to cut the hugs part away and make it a separate strip. These were added to the tag with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag.

I really like how this tag came out and I thought it would be nice to send to someone instead of a card. Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you have a wonderful day and a fantastic weekend too!
