Let's begin with the birthday tag I created:
This tag was created using Unique Laser Designs wooden scallop fence. I decided to turn the fence upside down for more interest, I also thought this would showcase a different method of embellishing with it.
I used a variety of distress ink to enhance the wooden fence. While the ink was still wet on the fence, I added sprinkles of distress embossing powder for more texture. I love adding texture upon texture.
Up next I created a matching card for the recipient using the same wooden fence. For the card I altered it a bit differently by using more blue distress ink.
Being that my card has a healthy amount of black on it, I wanted to incorporate more blue (being these are the birthday girls fav colors).
Just take a look at this dimension!
To gain a good vibrant coat of color, always start with a good layer of gesso before inking/misting your piece. These wooden embellishment really take hold to distressing very well.
Here you can see I even looped a portion of the floral stem and the gauze through the fence. The guaze was misted with green and kraft colored glimmer mist. After misting/inking your pieces, you can also use a nail file to ruff up the edges of the fence for a more realistic look.
