I created a mixed media gift tag by layering inks and paste to give pretty layers. I love the pink and blue colour scheme!
I started off by sponging Distress Oxide Inks onto a manilla tag and then spritzing it with water droplets.
Next, I used some clear Matte Gel texture paste mixed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam through a stencil to create texture on the background. The Ranger Craft Squeegee worked well to pull the paste over the stencil!
I stamped directly onto my tag with sentiments from the Whatnot Sentiment Ten and Bugs and Kisses stamp sets and used the clouds from the bug set to stamp with water - which left an image on the Distress Ink background, since they react with water!
I even stamped right on some seam binding ribbon with some sentiments from this set! Since I used waterproof ink I didn't have to worry that it would bleed.
And, lastly, I coloured my ribbon with Distress Oxide Inks by smooshing them on the craft mat, spritzing with water, and scrunching my ribbon up to lay it in the colour. These adorable bugs were watercoloured using Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers and I added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam to the dragonfly.
By adding foam dots I gave these little bugs some dimension and used the new Firecracker Sparkly Gumdrops along with sequins, a button, and SMS burlap string.
The sweet butterfly in the Whatnot Sentiment Ten was stamped on the background with Distress Ink, and I used a heart stamp from the Bugs and Kisses set, coloured in and covered with Glossy Accents.
I used some of the Firecracker Sparkly Gumdrops and more sequins to embellish. I love the Kaisercraft Wildflower paper I used on the card base!
Inside, I used the Thanks from the Whatnot Sentiment Ten and some more lovely butterflies stamped with Distress Oxide Ink.
