Hello Everyone!! Farrel here and today I get to share with you all my first creation for Helmar!
I recently just got back from an awesome Scrapbooking/Crafting cruise and one of the teachers wanted to do a tag swap. So I thought what better way to showcase Helmar than to use their products on the tags.
I started by covering the tags with Distress Oxides Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade and Mermaid Lagoon. I stamped the ink pads onto my non stick craft mat and sprayed with water. Then I randomly stamped the tags onto the inks, drying in between each colour.
Next I added some stamping using Versafine Onyx Black and Finnabair Cling Stamps - Net & Wire stamp set
I also used my Distress Oxides to ink around the edges of the tags. I used Broken China first and then very lightly added Black Soot.
The theme for the tags was Fun at Sea and for me mermaids are fun, so I used TCW783 Mermaid Dreams in the 6x6 with Colour Blast Colour Paste Royalty. I only used the mermaids tail on the tags.
While that was drying I then heat embossed Foliage #11 by Dusty Attic chipboard with Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder Orbit Olive Gold.
I adhered the chipboard pieces using Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue
For my seahorse, starfish and shell, I stamped my images and then scanned them to make them small enough to fit on the tag and printed them out on regular copy paper. I then sprayed them with Dylusions Sprays - Lemon Zest, Peony Blush and Rose Quartz.
I decided to adhere my sea creatures onto some cardstock for extra stability so I used Helmar Spray Adhesive to cover the cardstock and then placed the stamped images onto it before cutting them out.
I then used Helmar Scrap Dots to adhere my Seahorses and Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue to adhere the starfish and seashell. To finish off the tags, I also added some Kindy Glitz to the mermaids tail.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and I can't wait to share my next project with you soon.
