Happy Monday! I'm sharing a tag that I created with bits and pieces from the March and April Mixed Media Kits from Paper Wings Productions today. With Mother's Day coming at the end of the week, I thought I would make a pretty tag that is perfect for adding to a special gift.
I started this tag with the gorgeous piece of Blue Fern Studios Blooming Foliage chipboard and its beautiful packaging from the March Mixed Media Kit. I loved the pale shade of blue and the subtle fleur-de-lis pattern. I highlighted the design by embossing several white fleurs-de-lis with the fleur-de-lis stamp from the Royal Melange Cling Stamp Set from the April Mixed Media Kit.
I altered the chipboard by first adding a coat of gesso. I added the text with the Writing Cling Stamp from the Background Writings Cling Stamp Set. I colored the chipboard with Distress Ink and added glitter to select areas with Star Dust Stickles. I added glaze to the birds, which I cut from the clip art sheet from the March Kit, for some dimensional shine. Note: The April Mixed Media Kit contains a package of Textural Accents by Faber-Castell that contains gesso, gel medium and glaze and a bottle of Star Dust Stickles!
This glass vial comes in the April Mixed Media Kit. I thought it would be fun to add a secret message to this tag. I tied a piece of twine around the cork stopper of the vial, then attached it to my tag with a mini clothespin.
I'm terrible at keeping secrets so I'll share the message! I took this sentiment from a portion of a stamp from the Door Clear Stamp Set and stamped it onto a paper strip cut from a vintage book page. I just love the look and color of old paper.
I finished the tag with a sentiment from the Handmade Clear Stamp Set.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have convinced you to purchase a March and/or April Mixed Media Kit! Both are available in the Paper Wings Productions Store while supplies last. Either kit would make a great Mother's Day present!
