The chevron background was stamped & heat embossed with clear embossing powder & the tag then initially inked with a rainbow of Nick Bantock inks. The letter masks were then positioned & another layer of inks applied in the masked areas. After taking the masks off I carefully ironed the whole tag to remove the clear embossing powder & finally stamped & heat embossed the crowns in black.
Thinking about the back I thought I’d continue the “C” theme with black & white for Contrast using the chevron background again & heat embossing with clear pearly embossing powder to achieve a tone on tone effect. I was grinning when I selected the black & white Checked ribbon from my box but, by the time it dawned on me that I’d used Crystal gems to embellish my large crown, I was beginning to wonder whether variations of “C” were pursuing me.
