Fiskarettes UK Facebook Design Team Mixed Media Tags is my first project ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was a good one and your week has started well.. I’m very lucky and honoured to say that I’m sharing two tags I created today for the Fiskarettes UK page Facebook. I had to play with my beautiful Viva Decor stencil again and I created a second stencil using one of Fiskars punches so that I could add extra detail. 

I used Distress Oxides on the first one and here it is …

I used my Distress Oxides to create this tag
All the gorgeous inky and texture paste detail
I used the large jar squeeze punch to put my flowers in and the anemone punch to create a stencil which I applied texture paste through
A final look at this one

I used Distress ink pads on the second one and here it is ...

You can see the colours are much more translucent
You can see the depth of the texture paste here
All the yummy inkiness and paint, love this tag!
You can see another of the punches and the beautiful butterfly stamps here

Creative Artiste Challenge #28 Mixed Media Anything Goes

Double D Challenge Pastel Party & Photographic Inspiration

Frilly & Funkie Challenge In the good old summertime
I love the warmth, the light and the longer days of summer.
My whole colour palette for creating or dressing completely changes. My mood is so much lighter and better because the sun banishes any S.A.D. symptoms

I wanted to create something visible that would show me the visible difference Distress ink pads and Distress Oxide ink pads. So I decided to create a couple of mixed media tags that I could keep on my desk to refer back to.

I decided to use my Viva Decor stencil and to create a stencil from thin acetate that I could punch with Fiskars medium Anemone flower punch. So I took out two A4 sheets of Sheena stamping card and on one I used my Distress ink pads and the other I used my Distress Oxide ink pads. I lightly sprayed both of them and inked the edges too. Once they were dry I decided to fussy them up and make them look really pretty, after all they are just for me, lol!

Delving through my use it up stash recently I re-found the Anna Griffin floral dimensional stickers and I thought they would work beautifully with the Fiskars Continuous butterfly stamp as well as the Fiskars Squeeze large Jar punch. The embellishing consumables (bling, butterflies, ribbons, texture paste) are in my use it or loose it pile, the butterflies were stamped onto snippets and the pink flowers I created with the Fiskars Squeeze large Petals punch were Bazzill Bling textured pink card snippets lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
