Flowers in Her Hair

Jumbo Collage Tag
Jumbo collage tag with Distress Stains + Dylusions Ink Sprays (Marjie Kemper)

I made this jumbo Ranger tag using lots of inks and stencils, including the silhouette face by Jane Davenport.   After putting down many layers for my tag background, I turned my attention to the flowers. I used a combo of die-cuts, punches, and pre-made flowers for her head piece.  After I colored with Distress Stains and Dylusions Ink Sprays, I stamped them with a variety of different stamps from my stash.


Getting the 3-D Effect

I used the Xyronยฎ  Foam Squares that come in the Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit to make some of the flowers stand out.  These black foam squares totally disappear into the background!  I cut some in half to raise a few petals here and there.  That’s my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher that I used to attach the base flowers.


I stacked two of the black foam squares  to make the flower with the face stamped on it stand out above the others.  The squares are high-tack and you could probably stack quite a lot of them for a really dimensional project.
