Seahorse tag... a step-by-step

Today a step-by-step to make this tag.
As you will see the tag has been created in a process. Trial and error, and go with the flow.

Apply gesso randomly to a tag. Leave to dry.

Sponge over it with the shown colors of Adirondack inks. Splatter with water, and dab with a dry cloth. 


Stamp some shells and text with the colors Pool and Citrus. Heat emboss it with clear embossing. I had a happy accident here, part of the sponging wasn't dry yet, so it gives part of the tag some shimmer. 

Heat emboss the seahorse with black embossing powder. Do some black stamping ( text and branches). As you can see in the next picture I took the black stamped shell away with some Stazon cleaner. (Luckily this was not a problem because this part of the tag was covered with clear embossing). 

At this stage I decided the tag needed a bottom, so I tore it and adhered it again to show the torn edge, Stamp shells onto seperate paper, color and cut it out. I made some bubbles by circling some of the white dots from the water splatters with a greyish watercolor-pencil. 

Adhere the shells to the tag, color some thread. Finish the tag off as shown.
