Before I share my project today I would like to thank everyone for calling in and leaving a comment on my last post.
Today I would like to share a little bottle tag I made recently.
This is a really easy little project.
I make a lot of these as they are handy just to pop on a bottle when visiting friends.
Cut a piece of ply or thin MDF to size (slightly larger than the stamp image) and drill a small hole for fixing purposes.
Thin ply is easy to cut with a craft knife.
Base coat the piece with Gesso and with a coat of craft paint. (I used light purple colored paint).
Apply a coat of one step crackle medium and apply a coat of white paint and leave to dry.
Set this aside for the moment.
The main image piece.
Stamp the telephone image onto a piece of card stock and trim.
Mask off the telephone, bird and tag, and the side panel.
Pat some distress ink onto a clear file folder and spritz with water.
“Swish” the stamped piece of card into the diluted ink. Repeat if necessary and leave to dry.
Remove the masks and color the image.
Attach the stamped piece to the wooden base using PVA glue and ease out any air bubbles as you go. A brayer is good for this.
Sand down the edges of the tag to distress a little.
Apply one to two coats of sealer such as Mod Podge.
Attach a chain or ribbon for hanging purposes.
