Mixed Media Pocket Tag and ATC Card

Hello everyone… Today… apparently it is not Spring, it is Winter again! We got some snow! I hope… the Spring will be here and stay… 🙂

I spent part of this cold day in my craft room and work on some projects. One of them is dressing up one of these mixed media tags.

I have been learning some mixed media technique at Stamp Nation Class: Eat, Sleep, Create – Mixed Media for Cardmakers. If you are not a member yet, you might want to check this forum out!

I created a pocket tag for ATC card. Started with adding some White Gesso on the tag and let it sit to dry while I was sewing some of the scrap patterned papers.

I cut the paper diagonally to create the pocket. Then I added it on the tag with ScorPal tape. I trimmed the extra paper with scissors. Then using my finger, I added some White Gesso on that pocket for extra texture.

I added some White Gesso on a watercolor paper, then dried it with craft heater. After that, I added some of the purple and blue Gelato on it and blended them with baby wipes.

I use Retro Circles ARTplorations Stencil to add the homemade texture paste, dried it with craft heater and then on top of the card, I stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations Literary Caffein-ations stamp set with Black Archival Ink Pad.

I stamped one of the cup image from STAMPlorations Sketchy Coffee Cups stamp set with Black Archival Ink pad, colored it with Faber-Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Pens. I also use Faber-Castel Black Brush Pen to trace the cups and added some shadow with Faber- Castell Grey Brush Pen.

I trimmed the card to ATC size – 2 1/2″ x 3 12″, insert it inside the pocket tag and add this tag on my Mixed Media Tag Ring 🙂
