Mixed Media Tag with Embossing Powder Techniques!

Hello! I thought I'd pop back in before the long Easter weekend with a couple pretty tags to show you! Recently, I did a Facebook Live with Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Embossing Powders and Stamps and I thought I'd share that with you here. Sometimes just playing around with supplies gives you new ideas and I really had fun mixing powders and doing a few new techniques. Both tags are just a little different, so be sure to scroll down to see the finished tags together - and you'll find a video link at the bottom of the post.


I had fun with stencils, wood shapes and chipboard!


I love customizing seam binding ribbon by adding coordinating ink colours and spritzing with water. One of the pretty Emerald Creek Flower Crest brads adorn the top of the tag.


Here's a look at both tags - I showed how to create the main pieces on the video and then was able to quickly put everything together after!


This sweet fairy charm is from the Emerald Creek Shop. I added a drop of Ranger Liquid Pearls to the tiny well area she's holding. You could easily add a gem or some powder too! The powders mixed together on the wood shape to create a beautiful marbled background. Just by using parchment paper I was able to prevent the powders from flying all over the place.


A pretty jeweled brad finishes off this second tag.


Here's the Facebook Live video where you can see the demos and techniques I'm sharing to create these tags!
