Valentine's day Mixed Media Tag

Hi friends!!

Lately, I have been making a lot of CAS cards and enjoying it a lot so to change it up a little, I decided to create some mixed media. I tried to create a little scene where the little penguin is holding a flower with the message "with love" and the 3 hearts are emanating from him going up into the air :) haha isn't that cute! It was fun trying to combine 2 totally different styles, mixed media and the cute images. The design of this tag project is a tag within a tag because I have used a mini tag on the lower right side (on which the penguin sits and a bow is there at the top) this mini tag has nail polish marbling on it.

This is a picture of the tag:--


Here are a few photos of the process:- 


I started out by taking a packaging tag from a craft product and painted it with Prima's heavy white gesso. 


Then I took some papericious papers from the wedding collection and chose a pink paper with some beautiful roses. I fussy cut them and pasted them onto the bottom left of the tag. 


Next I took the Winnie & Walter- In Bloom- Renee's Leaves stamp set and stamped some leaves with ranger's archival jet black ink onto the background.

 

Then I stamped some sentiments from the Stamplorations- Power of Words- Dee's Artsy Impressions set using versafine onyx black ink. I also used a tag I had prepared earlier which had marbling on it. This was done by dropping nail polishes into a bowl of water. I was inspired to try this new technique by Rahmat. Thanks a bunch for the inspiration :) I had so much fun making marbled tags. So I used one of them in this project.


Prima Modelling Paste was applied through the Artplorations- Bloom Boldly Stencil. Next color was added using Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays - Maintenance Magenta, Pretty in Pink Pink and Frozen Jack Frost, Zig clean color real brush pens, some black eye liner pencil and a sakura waterbrush. 

Also the cute penguin from the Winnie & Walter- Penguin Stamplet set was stamped with versafine onyx black ink along with the sentiment (with love) and then fussy cut. 

Then I layered the elements, added Papericious flower chipboard which was painted with inca gold- old silver color, Papericious lace leaves and scripted sqaure sequins, wooden buttons which were stamped with the W & W - In bloom- Renee's Leaves to add interest, Flower pollens, Acrylic heart and to finish off splatters were made with watered down white gesso. I also added silver stickles at places and on the hearts to make them shimmer and clear wink of stella on the penguin and sentiment.

Here are a few pictures of the tag from various angles so you can see the details better :)



Do you notice the square shaped scripted sequins in the middle of the flowery chipboard? I think they look really cool and add so much interest :) 





Thanks for your time! Would love to read your comments :)
Stay Blessed.

I am playing along with the following challenges:
