{Mixed Media Tutorial} Textured Butterfly Tag by Tanja

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to show you how I created this Textured Butterfly Tag step by step. If you are interested in the products I used or other STAMPlorations, ARTplorations or CUTplorations products, I have a special treat for you: use the discount code STAMPGIRLTANJA and get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies.

  • cut away the overhang and cover the whole tag with white gesso
  • add color with the help of Prima Marketing Metallique Acrylic Paint in Rich Turquoise
  • let the tag dry thoroughly
  • adhere the butterflies to the tag
  • add some grey metallic wax to the raised areas and ink up the edges with black ink
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Prima Marketing Metallique Acrylic Paint in Light Patina and thread it through the hol eof the tag

I hope you got inspired and don't forget to join us for our Mixed Media Challenge over at the STAMPlorations Blog. The theme is always anything mixed media except a card. You must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The Linky closes at the end of the month.
