Imagine Crafts Vertigo Tutorial by Karen!

We have a cool product in this months kit - Vertigo by Imagine Crafts, and Karen's done a sweet little tutorial showing you how she made this gorgeous tag with it:

Today I'm sharing a little tutorial using the amazing medium "Vertigo" from Imagine Crafts, which is included in the January Style & Sophistication Main Kit.

To begin with I cut the 6 x 6 sheet of "Taffeta" into a tag.  I think ran the tag through my Vagabond die cut machine using a Tim Holtz texture fade.  The material is almost a foil-type material so it works really great with die cuts.  





 I then ran it through with a texture fade from Tim Holtz.  After that, I painted the Vertigo with some Jacquard Lumiere Paint "Halo Blue Gold" from the January Creativity Add On.  After that dried, I applied some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist (Jack In The Pulpit Teal), from the January Color Add-On kit.





For the next step I decided to die cut some Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers and try a few different shades.
For the two on the upper left I used the texture fade again and then painted and sprayed as I did with the tag.
For the flowers on the bottom left I just sprayed with the Jack In The Pulpit Teal mist and a bit of  Lindy's "Red Hot Poker Orange" mist, also from the January Color Add On.
The three flowers on the right were sprayed just with the Lindy's "Jack In The Pulpit Teal.  


I then layered them on the tag.








 This is some amazing and fun material to work with and I think is best altered with inks and mists.  

Hope you enjoy and are inspired to create something beautiful with it!!
