I have started a crafting love affair with the enormous #12 Ranger manila tags.
I just love how easy it is to transform them into a little gift card or tag holder, which makes them just that little bit more special than an ordinary card. If you score them at 4.5 and 9" and then trim a tiny bit of the bottom, they fold into a perfect little folder.
For this one I painted the background with the new Distress paints in Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire. It was very bright so I then toned it down with some Gesso which I blended in with a baby wipe. I added texture with some texture paste (good old cheap Poly Filla) through a stencil and then blended Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink over it.
The inside was lined with some matching papers from my stash, on old 7 Gypsies line, "Collections from the Journey". I also made a pocket and tag with my Spellbinders Labels 18 dies.
Well, hope you like it, not quite my usual style or colours perhaps, but great fun to do!
