Mixed Media Tag!

Hi everyone.

Its been a while since I have done a project without a colored image so I thought it would be a nice change to show you all a mixed media tag.

I started off with a layer of gesso to prime the tag. Then I used MFT Mixable  stencil to add embossing paste for some texture. I also added some glimmer mist and ink sprays.

Finally I embellished this tag with some flowers, pearls, micro beads etc.

Hope you like it :)

Hello everyone! Hope you are having fun crafting :)  Today I have another card with a colored image....hope you are not bored of my coloring ;)

This image is 'Lucy Loo- The Magnified Star'  from The East Wind. I really love these images.

For this card I have use different mediums. I colored the image with both pencil colors and copics ( need to buy a few more copics) . To create the space themed background, I used Distress Inks.
