Wing Tutorial

Hey :  Since my friend asked me to;  I'm going to try a tutorial on how I made my last tag/card.  The Feathered wing die is simple to use!!  First of all I cut my manila card stock to 8 3/4 x 6 1/4 this size fits in my vagabond and the die, it also gives me wiggle room if I some how move it by accident. Then I put Antique Linen distress ink and dried it.  Once the inks dry I shook up Picket Fence distress paint and scribbled it all over the paper and let that dry.
   Your paper should look like this.   While that was drying I took a Manila Tag and ran it through the sizzix basic grey pine branch embossing folder and then inked up the tag with Victorian Velvet and Evergreen Bough distress stain and painted on Perfect pearls.  I then edged it with Vintage Photo and inked it some more with both Victorian Velvet and Evergreen Bough distress ink.  
 Once the paper was dry I die cut my wings using the feathered wing die.  I glued the wings together (longest on the bottom and the smallest on the top. ) I inked the wings edges with Vintage photo.  Once they were glued I added gold foil with a glue stick to random places on the wings. Then I added perfect pearls.  The Winged Feathered die was made for perfect pearls!!  I then curved the wings to give the dome dimension. I used glue dots to attached the wings to the tag.  I then took seam binding and added water and the swished the ribbon in Victorian Velvet distress stain, squished it all up and let it sit and dry.  Next a clear gem with facets had Pink Sherbet alcohol added. Once everything was dry it was assembly time.  For a finishing touch I added some dollar store sticky back pearls and a ideology word band.  This was my end result.  Hope you like it.
