Lion Smile Tag

Hi there,

I would love to see your projects for the new Mixed Media Challenge over on the Happy Little Stampers Blog. This time is all about one of my favorite things to create "Tags":

  • cut out a tag from extra sturdy chipboard and adhere drywall tape and corrugated cardboard to create a first layer of texture
  • cover the whole tag with white gesso
  • add color with the help of Paper Artsy Infusions (Lemoncello, Emerald Isle, Blackcurrant) and water from a mister bottle
  • add black Stabilo All pencil all around the edges and activate it with a wet watercolor brush
  • stamp the dot pattern from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set with Archival Ink (Black Soot)
  • stamp the cute little lion from the Paper Artsy EKD03 set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color it with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic MArkers
  • use some masking tape to create a ground for the lion to sit on - grunge it up with the black Stabilo All pencil
  • adhere the lion on top of some cheesecloth
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Stain (Seedless Preserves) and thread it through the hole of the tag
  • type the sentiment on a vintage typewriter and cut it apart - ink up the edges of the little pieces with Archival Ink (Black Soot) and use double-sided adhesive to adhere them to the tag

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
