Beautiful Mixed Media Tags

Hi everyone, I'm on the Whisker Graphics blog with some mixed media tags.  Whisker Graphics tags are strong and sturdy and work extremely well for mixed media projects.

Divine Twine Metallics - Rose Gold
Divine Twine Collection - Bright White Solid
Divine Twine Knots - Icicle
Large Colored Tags - Pink
Small Colored Tags - Pink
Prima Flowers
Imagine Fireworks Spray Inks

Start by spritzing assorted colors of Fireworks Spray Inks on a craft mat.  Fireworks Spray Inks have lots of color and shimmer so they make any project gorgeous!  Dab the tags into the inks, picking up a variety of colors.

Heat set between each color so the colors stay true and don't get muddy.  Continue adding colors until you have achieved the patterns/designs you like.  Molding paste through a stencil acts as a resist to the inks, giving a fun effect to the tags.

My first tag has stamps, flowers and twine.  Bright White Twine was tied to both tags.  A sentiment was stamped on the smaller tag and embossed.

I stamped along the side of this tag and embossed with white embossing powder which stands out nicely against the background.  A canvas flourish was inked, tied with Icicle Twine and added to the tag.  More Icicle Twine was added to the tag topper.

Hearts were stamped along the bottom of the next tag, embossed, then colored with Fireworks.  Assorted images were stamped on the tags and a sentiment stamped on the smaller tag.  Rose Gold Metallic Twine tied both tags together.

These tags would make wonderful accents for gift bags, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
