Hello Tag

How about another mixed media tag?  It has only been a couple days since I shared one. :D  For this project I started with a manila tag that I used to soak up the excess Cherry Pie Dylusions Spray from an earlier tag. I have a small pile of tags like these so it was nice to use one.


Of course that wasn’t enough color so I did the following:

  • Applied some Antique Linen Paint to the tag with a foam applicator which softened the look of the Cherry Pie ink.
  • Then using a Prima Stencil and Peeled Paint Distress Paint I stenciled the tag to add the rows of dots.
  • Finally I spritzed the tag with Tempting Turquoise Dylusions Ink Spray for even more texture.

Mmmm… texture.


Once the tag was dry, I added a colored image: Jelly Bug Digital Stamp from Saturated Canary that was colored with Copic markers and touched up with Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles.


There was still room left on the tag so I added Prima Flowers, May Arts Turquoise ribbon, True Love designer paper (Basic Grey) and Black Thicker Stickers (American Crafts). Oh, and a few black pearls and some smudges of Diamond Stickles here and there.


What do you think?  Like the color scheme?
