August Mixed Media Tag #2 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. For some reason I used an old Paperbabe sketch as the design for this tag as well as using several snippets of patterned paper and quite a lot of die cuts. It turned out better than I expected too, lol, I think I’m away with the pixies a bit too much right now and here it is …

I love the deep rich colours on this one
Lots of lovely details
Lots of colour, patterned paper snippets and dies
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Mixed Media World Challenge MMW#27 Mood Board:

I was inspired by the shades of blue, green, and yellow. The photograph of the small flowers really called to me

I used Sizzix and Spellbinders dies

My last couple of posts have been all about the supplies, the techniques and the tools, lol! For this post I’m keeping it short. It is a mixed media tag in that I used Distress inks, Distress Oxide inks, Watercolours and wax crayons to create this tag. However it doesn’t have any texture paste or any overly shabby elements either so I’m happy to play along with any challenges I’m able to play along with where there are flowers, stamped and die cut, and a beautiful die cut two layer acrylic painted butterfly too.

I purchased the rose stamp from the lovely Kim a while ago and it was only when I went to check the name for this post that I found out that it’s a rose border, lol, I had cut mine up to use as separate stamps as I know I’ll use it a lot more that way. I may have to purchase another one though and keep it as one stamp to use as a border 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
