Hello happy stampers and welcome to the weekend! This is Rachel kicking off your crafty Saturday with a fun mixed media tag tutorial.
Here's how I created and I hope you spend some time today making one for yourself!
I started by placing Distress Inks directly onto my craft mat, spritzing with water, and then placing my manila tag on top of all the yummy ink. For this tag I used Distress Inks Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberries, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon.
Next I placed a stencil on top and went over it with Translucent Modeling Paste. It dries clear but still keeps a lot of texture.... when the background is so pretty, it's hard to cover it up! So clear is good :)
Next I used this gorgeous heart image also from the December 2015 SMAK. I stamped and heat embossed the image with black glitter embossing powder.
On a separate tag, I inked it up and stamped the quote from the SMAK December 2015, "Feel the Fear and do it anyway". I will cut up each word to add to my tag later.
For my focal image I inked up this bird from the April 2015 SMAK - Leave Ordinary Behind. Then I ran a glue stick around the edges and rubbed foil over it. I also added a thick layer of crackle paste over the bird and let it dry for a couple hours.
The SMAK stamps are so great to have in your collection. I love mixing and matching my kits, new and old, they're all good!
