Post 305: Sea Themed Mixed Media Tag

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Sea Themed Mixed Media Tag today. This was part of my DT work for Bob n Betty. All the details can be found hereFor this tag, I used chipboard as the base and then for texture added snippets of faux leather, gesso, art stones & gauze. The images & sentiment were stamped using the Visible Image- Dare to Swim stamp. Watercoloring was done to add color using local pigment powders and zig markers. A layer of Glossy Accents was added to the Jelly Fish to give it shine. Glass glitter was also applied using Prima's 3d Matte gel. The edges of the tag were distressed with black soot distress ink and some seam binding was colored with the same colors to add to the top of the tag. In the end, a few dew drops were added to give the look of water droplets. 

Here is a photo of the tag:
