Hi friends !
I'd like to share a Love Themed Mixed Media Tag. This was part of my DT work for Bob n Betty. All the details can be found here. For this tag, I did watercoloring in the background using zig markers. Background stamping was done using the chequered mini finnabair stamp & a Scrapberry love themed stamp. For added interest, background stenciling was done using the Tim Holtz dot fade stencil. The heart was die cut from faux leather and the title is from the Bob n Betty, no one but you paper pack. To bring out the texture in the chipboard and leather, I rubbed on some red inka gold and it gave a wonderful shine as well. Gauze was added under the heart, some splatter was created with ink, a braid was made from faux leather and tied to the tag. The edges were darkened with black soot distress ink and a border was created with white acrylic paint. In the end, a few red sequins were added for shine.
Here is a photo of the tag:
