Live Laugh Love - Mixed Media Tag

Hey Everyone & Happy Sunday! Welcome to my blog today where I would like to show you a mixed media tag I made using all Whimsy Stamps products. Whimsy has such a huge variety on stamps that make it easy to create in the mixed media style. My mixed media style is more on the cute side. I am not really a huge fan of the non-cute stamps and/or steampunk stamps. 



One day I was browsing Pinterest and I saw a mixed media tag that inspired me to create something similar with just Whimsy products. Especially after the release of the Build a Fairy Garden die set. 

Here is the link to the tag where I got my inspiration from! 


I started out with a white tag cut from mixed media paper. I then covered the tag with a layer of very light pink acrylic paint. I then added some texture with structure paste and stencils (brick and honeycomb - linked below). I added color with my Gelatos and a water brush and more texture and interest to the backgound with FADoodles clear stamps and Distress Background stamps (all linked below).


The hearts and flowers were stamped and fussy cut. The other elements from the Build a Fairy Garden set were die cut and colored with Karin Markers. For the Fairies and the grass I used Distress Embossing Glaze. 


The stem of the tall mushroom was drawn onto mixed media paper and cut out. I used the stem die as guide, just made it longer so it would fit perfectly on my tag. Some details were added with white gesso, black fine liners and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen.
