A Tag with Destination Unknown....

Hello!!!  Today I share with you a tag tutorial using the new beautiful collection "Destination Unknown" by 7Dots Studios.  I made this tag with fabulous textures and dimension using the 6" x 6" designer pad, the chipboard, the stencil, tags and stickers. This collection has beautiful colors and embellishments.

I stamped the anchor and stars with the fantastic stamp from the same collection.

These beautiful chipboards are from Um-Wow-Studios designed for this collection.

Here's the tutorial...enjoy it!!

I worked with the Destination Unknown -pad 6 x 6 and I chose the "Celestial" paper.  Then I
scored one and half inch border on either side of my paper using my paper trimmer and the
scoring tool.

I folded each border of my paper.  Next, I tore the two sides of the paper as illustrated in photo.

With Molding paste and the new Line Element Mask I gave textures to both borders.  Then I
cut a  piece of paper 6" x 4 1/2" - Travel Bag from the same collection and punched the borders
with a Martha Steward punch.

I applied molding paste to the center of my tag using the Line Element Mask but this time
using the dots shape. After dry, I traced the stencil design with a Tim Holtz' Distress Marker
and then I sprayed the Lyndy's Stamp Mist.

I stamped in a cardstock the anchor and star from the Destination Unknown-Clearstamp 
Next, I started to make the layers to create my tag, I used the punched paper piece as my
base, then I added some tags from the 12 x 12 tags, a piece of cardboard to create dimension
and finally I adhered my folded paper piece to the center of my paper base.

I applied soft matte gel and art sugar from Finnabair- arts basic-to the Seaweed- UmWow Studio-chipboard.
And gloss gel with Glitter from Finnabair-Arts Basic to the Startfish- UmWowStudio-chipboard.

I  adhered my sentiment from the word stickers 6 x 12 and finally I added all my embellishments.
