Layered Vintage Etcetera Tag

 Hello friends. I am here presenting this Royal Themed Tag for The Funkie Junkie Boutique's June 2nd Challenge. Upload your project on the Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog. You could win a $25.00 gift card to The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I am planning to do a series of decorative Etcetera Tags over the next few months. I love to display fun tags in our home.

This week's challenge is I'm Feeling like Royalty in honor of the Queen of the UK. Think crowns, castles, elegant and regal patterns or gilding with touches of gold. I chose purple and gold for this fun project.

I started by painting the extra small etcetera tag with grey paint. I applied Collage Paper that had been stamped with an image from the Stamper's Anonymous Architecture Stamp. By using Distress Collage Medium, the surface was prepped for adding color using Distress Crayons. I used Dusty Concord and Antique Bronze and scribbled the colors on the board. I smeared the color just using a wet finger to smooth it out.

The next step was to apply Distress Grit Paste through the Flourish Stencil. I added some purple embossing powder randomly over the stenciled paste and gently heat dried.

The Sizzix Bigz Cathedral Window made the perfect base for the flower and sentiment. I used the die and layered 3 windows, but the Etcetera Cathedral Window would work if you pained it gold.

Brush Strokes Flower #1 was perfect as an embellishment. I die cut the flowers and leaves from purple  and gold cardstock. Isn't the dimension great?

The Tiny Text Stamp from Stamper's Anonymous has become one of my go to sets! Such a great variety of sentiments to choose from.  I gold embossed the sentiment on a purple strip and added 2 additional layers for dimension.

We'd love to have you join in on the challenge by uploading your projects on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. Check out the large selection of Tim Holtz as well as Graphic 45, Stamperia and other great vintage products on the store site.
