BGC#58-Textured TAG!

Hello Friends!!!  A big Thank you to everyone who played along our last challenge 
and welcome to a brand new challenge at BGC.

BGC#58 Textured TAG!

Lets read the  guidelines:

Challenge Guidelines:
1.   Make a paper tag .
2.   You MUST use any kind of texture paste on it (like gesso, embossing paste, acrylic texture, cracked texture paste etc.)
3.   Deadline 1st -15th September 2014.

This time we have great prizes sponsored by:

Sponsors 2014

I have made two tags for this challenge using gesso and embossing paste on both.
The first one is using soft colors:

This is a set of 6 tags and I have tried to make this layered by inserting one tag into another.

I wanted to keep this one soft and elegant. I started by applying gesso on all the edges. Next I added texture paste using stencil on the edges of the two bigger tags and then just leaving it uncolored. Finally, I embellished it with handmade flowers, diecut,  a little bit of stamping and tying tulle on each tag except the smallest one (with image) which is tied with stamen .

My next tag is a vintage one:

Here I have created a background first with the help of distress inks and used crackle paint on it. I, then added texture in the same way by pushing the embossing paste through stencils. The two smaller tags are also distressed and stamped. Next I created pockets with torn papers and inserted these smaller tags in them.  I have also applied gesso on the edges of the handmade flowers :)

Hope you enjoy this challenge and play along with us!!
