Mixed Media Tag by Melina Dahl


Hello everyone!

It´s Melina here today sharing a mixed media tag. 
I used the new butterfly stamps from the Doodled Butterflies & Leaves stamp set.

Here´s what I did:

I make a patterned paper using different colours of Distress Oxides and a number of 
That´s Crafty! stencils, just as I did for the mushroom card two weeks ago. 
I stamp the butterflies on the paper and cut them out.
I make some splashes to the tag using a yellow Posca pen. 
Video on how I made the patina effect background HERE

I apply That´s Crafty! Light Texture Paste through one of my new favourite stencils, TC8024.
I layer pieces of gelli printed paper and cheese cloth, glue them together and use the same paste and stencil for texture.

Finally I assemble everything, make some splashes with black gesso, 
white emboss the quote on black cardstock and my tag is finished.

Products used:
That´s Crafty! Stencils: 
Cheese Cloth

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

See you next week,
xx Melina
