Fabulous & Classy - A Mixed Media Color Challenge #3



Inspired by the the colors for A Mixed Media Color Challenge #3, I created a Mixed Media Tag, using stamps from Prima and Verses, along with pattern paper from My Minds Eye and Just a Trace Stencils.

I started out with a Tag I cut from Mixed Media Paper using the Silhouette


To cover the tag, I tore and sponged pieces of My Minds Eye Pattern Paper adhering it to the tag with Gel Medium

The Doll stamp from Prima is stamped on the same My Minds Eye Pattern Paper, and paper pieced - all edges are sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, color was added with STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Watercolor Pencils

I added additional stamping to the tag using the Border stamps from Prima and a sentiment from Verses, then added pops of color to the tag using by dabbing Teal/White Acrylic Paint through the Just a Trace Tiny Dangle Stencil.


I placed the Doll image onto my tag for placement, then sponged Gathered Twigs Distress Ink through the Just a Trace Tiny Ornament Stencil for added interest.


To finish the tag, I adhered the Doll image with Gel Medium, then distressed the edges and sponged on Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and swiped some Gesso over the tag to tone it down a bit.  To embellish I added some Vintage Seam Binding, button and a charm.



Details:
Stamps - Prima, Verses Rubber Stamps
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Mixed Media
Other - Silhouette Cameo, My Minds Eye Pattern Paper, Gel Medium, Gesso, Ink Blending Tool, Acrylic Paint (Teal/White), STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Watercolor Pencils, Just a Trace Tiny Ornament Stencil/Tiny Dangle Stencil, Vintage Seam Binding, Button, Charm, Glue Dots
