Secrets Tag by Corina Finley


Thank you for joining me Today!

This week I decided to create a Tag, played with a stencil and alter some awesome chipboard elements.

I created my layers from black and manila cardstock. I used a large Tag die to cut the black cardstock. The Tag base was stamped this a Distress Lined Background stamp with versamark, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set.

For the Manila cardstock, I applied Distressed Oxide in Fired Brick using an Ink Blending tool.  I dried the piece, then flicked with water and used a piece of paper towel to blot up the excess.


I used a stencil next with a metallic grey paint. I applied the paint unevenly with a Ink blending tool - wanting some lighter areas. Set aside to dry fully. Then the stencil was reapplied and each brick was traced using a black fine tip marker.

To alter the Med Key Holes, I used thick black embossing powder, while still wet (hot), I sprinkled with black glass glitter.  The Bolts and Plaque were painted with Black Gesso. The Mini Wood Key was painted with silver paint and a little was added to the 4 Bolts.

Seam binding, black twine and a metal Secret Charm was added for a finishing touch!
