How to Make a Gorgeous Sea Side Watercolor Tag

Hi all Katie Lamb here today!

I am a guest designer for ScraPerfect this month. ScraPerfect manufactures adhesives and other crafting tools, here is a link to their products:

Here are my step by step directions on how to make this beautiful tag. 

Take a blank tag and sprinkle Brusho powder onto the  card and use a paint brush with a little water to cover the tag with ink.

Step 2 Take Cheese cloth and dye with ink

Cut a couple of strips from cheese cloth and sprinkle Brusho powder over the top. Apply water to activate dye and leave to dry.

Step 3 glue cheese cloth to tag with Best Glue Ever

Add small amounts of Best Glue Ever onto the tag to adhere the cheese cloth.

step 4 apply texture sand paste

Apply DecoArt Texture Sand Paste to base of tag and a little over the cheese cloth.

Add beads and shells using Best Glue Ever

Glue seed beads and small shells onto the tag using Best Glue Ever. Once dry remove any tacky areas using the ScraPerfect Perfect Crafting Pouch.

Fill a mini glass bottle with seed beads and adhere to tag.

You could also use one of these adorable pre-filled bottles from ScraPerfect.

Finish tag by adding some seaside themes stamps to the tag .

And again my finished tag. 

Thank you for visiting!
