Love tags and Shimmerz Spritz

I know that Christmas is this week, but I wanted to make some love tags. Red is a good color and it can be used any time of the year.
For these tags I used Bed of Roses Shimmerz Spritz and Licorice Spritz. I had recently cleaned my space and found a ton of fun things to play with.
I stamped the tag with VersaMark ink and then embossed the image with clear embossing powder.
I stamped the background with a polka dot stamp.
This is where the magic begins. First I sprayed a light color coat with Bed of Roses Shimmerz Spritz. I used a towel to gently wipe the embossed areas, and the tag. I sprayed with Bed of Roses, again, and then added a light coat of Licorice Shimmerz Spritz. I wiped the embossed areas and this time I got that Licorice color in the grooves of the embossed image.
I added some stamped hearts, Love sentiment and a fabric bow with a button. Perfect gift tags for that someone special.

What a great idea! Bed of roses is my favorite color, finished it in only a few weeks so I really need to get me a new one. Thanks for the inspiration.
