Hello FRIDAY!! Did you think it was going to be left out this week? LOL
Today's offering is a tag that I had loads of fun creating, and is my DT piece for the Rogue Redhead Designs blog. Not been there? Oh my, wonderful place and the design team I get to play with are top-notch gals!
I started with a water color tag, for strength, but really had no direction of where I was going to go with this tag.. I did glue a patterned paper to it, but it kinda got lost oncest I really got started. From there I just kind-a threw stuff at it, and what stuck I used!! LOL I used stamps from the Rogue Redhead Designs RRD 012: Behind the Scenes , using Timber StazOn ink. The sentiment is from RRD013 This N That plate. The die cuts were a gift from Carole check her out here. The middle medallion I used Pearl Ex on the middle, and touched the outer edges with while acrylic paint. For a little "bling" I added a rhinestone to the middle and to each corner.
I wanted the sentiment to be some sort of tag thingy, but didn't want it to cover the middle medallion, so I swung it to the side and glued it in place, then it gave me the opportunity to add a fuzzy fiber and some wooden beads, colored with inks.
So what stuck?
modeling paste, using zig-zag stencil
homemade spritz and sprays
StazOn timber ink
White acrylic paint
When ever I am doing a mixed media piece I ALWAYS get out the Redhead Designs RRD 012: Behind the Scenes stamps. They are just the most versatile set of stamps I own. If you like to do mixed media cards, tags, ATCs and journal pages, this set is a must have.
(No I don't get kick backs for this, or own stock in this company. I just LOVE these stamps)
Thanks for taking time to stop by.
