1 Die 8 Looks: Part 8 - Mixed Media Collage Tag

Hi there,

this is the last part of my series over at the Karten-Kunst Blog. Part 8 is all about creating a Mixed Media Collage Tag:

  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper and use Dina Wakley Gel Medium to cover it with patterned paper strips from the Tim Holtz Wildflower paper pad
  • add some additional pieces from the Tim Holtz Expedition Ephemera Pack
  • add some white gesso to tone the background down
  • cut out the Memory Box Sketch Daisy from paper from the same patterned paper pad and color all the elements with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain, Forest Moss, Picked Raspberry)
  • adhere the flower to the tag and add some splatters of white gesso
  • emboss the Karten-Kunst Große Texte Hallo at the top of the tag
  • die a piece of seam binding with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) and ink up the edges of the tag with that same ink color

Here are the links to the other parts:

Part 3 - Vellum Cutout
Part 4 - Embossing with the Die
Part 5 - Shaker Card with Flower Silhouette
Part 6 - Stamping with a Die Cut
Part 7 - Creating a Simple Shape out of Die Cut Elements

I hope that you enjoyed my little series "1 Die 8 Looks".

Hi! Robots

Hi there,

I would like to show you this fun robot card over on the A Day for Daisies Blog:

  • color three of the fun A Day for Daisies Bot Two images with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • use the Stampendous Tiny Alphabet stamp set, Versamark and WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder to add the sentiment 
  • stamp the Create a Smile Color your Polka background onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper with Versamark and heat-emboss it with Ranger Cement embossing powder
  • color the dots with the same colors of the Inktense Pencils used on the robots
  • adhere the panel to a light grey cardbase

Have a day for daisies.
