To create the tag, I used the packaging from a 2 minute noodle box and covered it with Prima Rose Quartz - Grateful Heart pp.
Then using the dabbing technique I applied the following Distress Oxide Inks - Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. (I stamped the inks onto my craft mat and spritzed with water before dabbing and dried in between colours)
Once I was happy with the colours for my background, I then used the font stamp from Darkroom Door Hummingbirds set. Using the same stamp set, I stamped the hummingbird and leafy branch onto some white cardstock and used Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder - Black Forest Black.
I then cut out the hummingbird and using a waterpen, I then applied Distress Oxide Inks Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean to my hummingbird and applied some cheesecloth to the back. I then inked around the edges of the tag using Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot.
After adhering my stamped bird, I then stamped "Fly High" which is from the same stamp set and added some splattering using Dylusions White Linen Spray.
And there you have it..... a mixed media tag!!! I hope I have inspired you to create something special.
Until next time - Happy Scrappin'
