Thank You Penny Black Style




Step 1
Heather started out by stamping the Penny Black Large Dahlia, large leave, and "Thank You" sentiment using Art Glitter Transparency Pad black ink onto white cardstock.  She cut out the stamped images.  She added a blue polka dot piece of scrap paper to a Tim #8 manila tag with Designer Dries clear glue.  She Created a smaller tag out of a piece of pink polka dot scrap paper.  Both tag edges and the "Thank you" sentiment were inked using Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress ink.  Holes were created using a Crop-O-Dile punch.  She used a Martha Stewart lace punch to punch some of the Scrap paper.

Step 2
Heather used an orange piece of chalk to color in the large Penny Black Dahlia.

Step 3
Heather used a green piece of chalk to color in the large Penny Black leaves.

Step 4
Heather used a magenta piece of chalk to color in the Penny Black "Thank you" sentiment box.  Below you will see how she used a tiny cotton ball and an alligator clip to spread out her chalk.

Step 5
Heather used the Sticky tape on the back of the tiny orange chevron bag, and scrap piece of pink paper.

Step 6
Heather cut the punched strip to size, applied the Designer Dries clear glue to it, and tucked it in under the orange chevron bag.  She then adhered the pink paper and used the Designer Dries clear glue to adhere the orange ribbon to the orange chevron bag.

Step 7
Heather then added the orange bag (with tag insert) to the blue poka dot base.  She then set her Penny black images on her project to check for placement.

Step 8
Heather used the Ultra Fine Tip and Designer's Dry Clear glue to outline the leaves.

Step 9
Next she used the Ultra Fine tip applicator and Designer's Dry Clear glue to outline the Penny Black Dahlia.  

Step 10
 #94 Key Lime glitter was applied to the leaves, and #350 Butterscotch glitter was applied to the Dahlia and the outlined areas on the orange chevron bag.  Then she used the Fine tip applicator with the Designer Dries Clear Glue to add dots to the bag.

Step 11
 Heather used Ranger's Barn Door Distress ink and the Small Dahlia, full small dahlia, and small leaves stamps and created her own background on the pink tag.  She added a "Dream" text box with sticky tape, and inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.  Next she added Designer Dries clear glue in the same manner to the edges of the tag.  Please refer to photo below for placement.

Step 12
 Heather continued to add more Designer Dries Clear glue to the edge of tag and the edge of text box.  She then added the #7 Red Rose glitter to the edge of tag, and the #352 Chamois around the text box.  Please refer to photo below for placement.

Step 13
Heather used Pop dots to elevate her Penny Black Dahlia and leaves above the orange chevron bag.  She used the Fine Tip Applicator, applied a line of glue around the edge of the pink scrap paper and "Thank you" text box and applied the #7 Red Rose glitter (she applied it to the little dots in the white part of the orange chevron bag as well).  She added the glue in the same manner to the "Just for You" text box and applied the #183 Blue Angel glitter.  A bow was created out of the same orange ribbon and glued in place with the Designer Dries Clear Glue.
Here is the finished piece.  Orange Seam binding was added to the pink tag top, and Pink with White polka dot ribbon was added to the blue tag base (this ribbon was inked with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink).  
Here is a couple close ups.
