Making this tag was very fun and relaxing for me. I just started with what was on my desk and let it develop with a mind of its own. I had some cardboard that came from a drink carrier from Sonic. I cut it into a tag shape. I took a page from the
STAMPlorations Coloring Book:
I watercolored it with pink orange yellow and maroon.
I stamped it with
STAMPlorations Mini Mixed Media Background Stamps
I then took ARTplorations Bubble Dance Stencil
and I used a black sharpie marker to trace the bubbles of the stencil onto the tag. I added white acrylic paint to the bubbles. I also took a blue colored pencil and colored in the bubbles. I added gold thread, cheesecloth and floral lace. Then I added two flowers that I made using
STAMPlorations Big Bloom Factory Stamps
I finished it off with adding gold acrylic paint to the centers of the flowers and I shredded a satin ribbon to use the fibers on the top of the tag.
