This is a step by step, or as close I can do to how I made my April Altered tags. I did this one 3 times till I liked the final product. I took two tags and put them through my cuttle bug in an embossing envelope. I went with the Script because it was the most fitting to the theme of Easter. Then I took my distress ink in Wild Honey and Scattered Straw and inked them using my blending tool.
Next I took out my Close to my Heart egg stamp set (this was a stamp of the month last year I believe)
I pick a few eggs out that I liked and stamp them with Versa mark ink on white cardstock.
Took my chalks and a make up sponge and picked a few pastel colors.
Then chalked them so they looked like the ones below.
Below are all the eggs finished
I then cut them in strips cause I find them easier to cut with my little scissors that way.
Then Carefully cut around the images and then up them aside. (Boy do I wish I had a video camera with the stand so I can do videos instead of all this)
Next I dug through the scrap bins and found two brown scraps of different tones and cut them into strips with my paper cutter. I then did I simple basket weave that was wide enough for my tag and I eyeballed the height.
Every Easter basket needs grass right. So I went the scrap bin again and found two scraps of green in different tones and cut them with my scissors into very thin strips.
To give mine the "grass" feel I balled them up in my hands. Creating this:
Next up I flipped my baskets over and added adhesive in a strip on top of the basket
I added the grass and then added more adhesive to glue them down. Then I layered my eggs on the tag itself about were I want them so they would poke out over the grass and basket. Followed by gluing my basket in place on top of them. Then I did all the trimming around the edges that needed to be done. After all that I cut two strips of white cardstock and stamped Happy Easter then scored and folded them, cut "v"s on either side to create the banner look. After I glued them on I decided they looked blah so I added some purple Stickles around the edges. I think the came out pretty cut.Pin It Now!
