DT: Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge blog

Today I have another Design Team contribution for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge. I made three mixed media tags and added the Wreath Builder die cut wreath and flowers and the die cut butterflies.

The tags were made from collaged bookpages using a technique I saw from Joie de Fi on YouTube. There was lots of sewing and then after cutting them to size, more seeing round the edges too.

I then added gelatos to the three tags in three different primary colours and added water and smudged them with my fingers.

Next I die cut three wreaths and flowers and some additional leaves from scraps of cardstock, and three butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou dsp.

I then layered them us and stuck them down and chose a quote sticker for each which I outlined with pen to help it show up against the book print.

I then splattered a glimmer ink to add shimmer all over the tag.

Absolutely delighted with these and the technique Joie has introduced me to. Absolutely going to be doing this again!

Hope you like my mixed media tags for this months die cut challenge… certainly a different way to use your die cuts against this simple to make and fun background.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
