KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Tag ~ FotoBella DT

     Have you ever wondered how to use up your extra die cut alpha's? I'll show you how on this tag made with the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Bundle and KaiserCraft Pen & Ink 6.5" Paper Pad from

     After cutting the specialty foil alpha paper from the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink 6.5" Paper Pad into a tag, I adhered it along the right side with a torn piece of dictionary paper. Then I glued down some of those extra alphas, and covered it all with Prima Marketing White Gesso. After drying, I colored it with Kaisermist Spray (Coffee) and Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter), Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes (Old Silver and Rich Copper), embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powders (Silver and Copper), and finished it with a little smudge of Distress Crayon (Black Soot).

     I popped up the typewriter fussy-cut from the Specialty Black Foil sheet, adding some other embellishments from the dic cuts, inked along the edges with the KaiserCraft Mini Ink Pad (Black). Then to keep with the vintage vibe, I adhered some of the pieces with staples. 

     The wooden feather embellishment included in the KaiserCraft Pen & Ink Bundle, was colored with a spritz of Kaisermist Spray (Coffee), followed with Distress Crayons (Black Soot, Antique Linen, and Picket Fence).

     Finally, I tied it off with some metallic fibers from my stash.
