1 Stamp Set, 2 Tags

It has been a while since the last time I made mixed media tags. And today, I feel it is tag day ๐Ÿ™‚

My plan to make a tag a week for this year. But for I missed several weeks so I try to catch up and enjoy the process of making it. Today, I made 2 tags with 1 stamp kit.

When Words Fail

On both tags, I used Canson Watercolor paper because I worked with watercolor paint and acrylic paints. Stamp set I used is Unity Stamp Company – August Kit of The Month.

On the first card I was inspire by the tag from Michelle Short at Tag Your’re It Challenge #54

I created my first tag background with watercolor paint. I dried it with my CTMH Craft Heater. And then I stamped the flower with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Big Brushes, sprayed some water, and dried it with the Craft Heater. Once the image dried well, I stamped the quote with VersaFine Onyx Black. I added some orange gems from Hampton Arts.

I also enter this first tag at Unity {Show & Tell} – Tag Challenge (8/18 – 8/25).

Heart of Gold

This second tag is a mixed media tag. First, randomly I stamped the border stamp from the Unity August KOTM with Versafine Onyx Black. Then using old credit card, I added 4 shades of FolkArt metallic gold paints on the tag. I dried it well with my CTMH Craft Heater before stamping on it.

Once the painy dried, I stamped the flower heart with VersaFine Onyx Black.

Heart of Gold

I painted the stamped flower heart image with FolkArt Hot Pink and Purple Acrylic Paints. Then I traced the flower line back with LePen Archival Pen. And I felt like it needed some sparkle, so, I added some glitter glue with brush on the heart ๐Ÿ™‚

I wrote the quote with Sharpie permanent marker. It write smoothly on painted surface! Love it!

Loving these tags! My goal when I decided to make this tag ring this year is to have a collection of encouraging words and God’s words by the end of the year of 2016. And I can look back these tags for reminders later in the future.

I hope you all are inspired today and thank you so much for visiting. Have a fabulous day!

  1. Wonderful tags, Helen. The painted stripes looks great with the little flower and I love that sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Tag You’re It!
