Tag Tuesday - Baking

This weeks challenge is Baking, anything to do with it at all.  I chose three blueberry muffins, as I had just bought some stamps.  I painted the cardstock tag with gesso and attached a single layer of a pretty paper napkin while the gesso was still wet.  I covered the back of the tag again with gesso and used this to attach the two white sheets that I had separated from the napkin.  I tore the edges of the front napkin to fit the tag exactly and the back white sheets a little bigger so that they showed from the front like a torn edge.  I stamped the three muffins twice each and cut them out.  I cut the the top section of each one and attached it to the complete duplicate cutout.  This gave a raised area where the muffin shows from the case.  Some raised dots attach each muffin to the tag, though you can't see this from my picture.  I used glossy accents to highlight the blueberry muffins and the flowers on the background.  I made the blueberries with blobs of  dark blue stickles.  Some white and lilac ribbon threaded through an eyelet finish the tag at the top.

Thanks for popping by my blog.

I saw your tag over on 'Tag Tuesday' and popped over to visit your blog. Your tag is great and I found your comments on using gesso as glue very interesting I will have to give that a try.

Thanks for posting these details. I hadn't realized the edging was showing from the back-- great idea and effect!
