Craftie Cafe: Wine Tags


Jo Herbert - 311017 Christmas Tags Pic 1

Welcome to today’s blog post brought to you for Craftie Cafe Online store. 

Today, I have created some fun tags to place on bottles of wine as hand made gift idea. These tags can be mass produced and were so much fun to make.

Coming to the end of year it is timely that I have some of these ready to give to teachers, work colleagues and friends.

I have used an array of products from Craftie Cafe  wtth MFT, Avery Elle, Wplus9 and more.

Watercolour Cardstock

I have used watercolour cardstock as my base to create on. Before I start I have heat embossed gold embossing powder and used the Spring Bouquet stampset as my sentiment of choice as it has the loveliest Thank You and accompanying add on for the tags.
I have saturated the tags by brushing some water on prior to applying ink to help the inks absorbs and spread on the cardstock to achieve a watercoloured look.  Distress inks are great to use to achive a wash look as I find you can still see the embossing through the watercolouring.
To finish embellishing the tags I have used strips of ribbons from my scrap stash. 
Today’s project is also a great way to help use up your left over watercolour cardstock and ribbon.
