Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty
Today I am sharing with you a recent make for the Hochanda Show's with Our Bev
I used one of the medium MDF Tags which I painted first with white gesso to give a nice surface to stamp and ink onto... I use a brush so I get a nice brush stroke texture.
Next I inked the tag using Spun Sugar distress ink and my Bee Crafty Blending Mat in the middle area working outwards. I then used Scattered Straw distress ink around the edges.
I stamped the Line&Dot texture stamp using a gorgeous purple paint, then the Distressed Dots texture stamp using a lush Teal paint
I decided to stamp the Inspired by DaVinci Script stamp over the whole tag using archival ink which I love as it stamps so crisp and dark even over paints and inks so it's perfect for mixed media.
To add a bit of an extra textured look I took a few pen lids and straws which I dapped into wet white and black paints to create the circle bubbles this was a sudden brain wave moment for a previous shows samples which I loved so much I had to make some more projects. I love using items from around my home which wouldn't normally be thought of as craft tools/supplies
For the sentiment I stamped the Dream Wordage Stamp onto watercolour cards rock that I had already trimmed to size. I then coloured the sentiment first with washes of the same paints from earlier and once dry I inked over two opposite corners using scattered straw distress ink. I matted this onto black cardstock and fixed to the tag using my hot glue gun.
I picked out some paper flowers in similar colours to the paints and inks I used. I dabbed them with black paint and a dry brush to add a darker look to them and fixed to the corners of the sentiment using hot glue gun.
I really like how this one came our as the colours are really lovely and shows mixed media can be pretty too
