{Mixed Media Tutorial} Mixed Media Tag by Susanne



Hi my dear crafty friends.

Susanne here today and I've to share a step by step tutorial for this mixed media tag. I used the awesome Flutter Zen 2  die and cut the butterflies from a Distress Oxide background. Save 20% on your next order over at stamplorations.com with the code: "STAMPGIRLSUSANNE".


Start by adding Distress Oxide "Worn Lipstick" on one half of a kraft tag. Add water with a sprayer through a stencil. I used the "Pebble Waves".


The ink reacts with the water and creates a nice texture.


Add texture paste on the other half of the tag. I used the "Layered Petals" stenicl.


Cover it with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain and remove it from the textured parts with a wet baby wipe.


 Add some old book paper strips in the middle with Gel Medium. Create some texture with stamping a sentiment randomly on the pink side.


 Add some black colour with a Gelato.


Add some white splatters and shading with white liquid watercolour paint.


Finally cut two butterflies from a Distress Oxide background and adhere them to the tag. Add a sentiment.


Tip! When I add die cuts to a busy background I paint the cutting edges of the die cuts with a black marker. So they pop out more.

I hope you like my tag, thanks for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.
