STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop & Linky Party Week 3

Welcome again to STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop & Linky Party! It is a 25 Days of celebrating Spring. This it the week 3 and the Design Team has created gorgeous Spring Themed projects to share with you.

I created a mixed media tag for this week inspiration:

First I added the Droplets ARTplorations Stencil on the tag that I create from Canson watercolor paper. I secure the stencil with washi tape, and then I added some Imagine Crafts – GooseBumps on it. Slowly I removed the stencil and set aside to dry. Wash the stencil right away after using GooseBumps liquid.

Once the texture dry well, I spray some of the FireWorks! Spray (Angel Pink, Rose Bud, London Fog), then using a fairly damp paper towel, I wipe it off some of the paint on the GooseBumps texture. I also added some splatters on it from the same sprays. Unexpected, but I love the surprise how the watercolored resist background turn out!

I stamped the bricks, bubble wraps and arrows from STAMPlorations – Mixed Media Grunge Stamp Set with Ranger – Black Archival Ink Pad.


I stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations – Trendy Butterflies 2 stamp set with Kaleidacolor – Bouquet ink pad on a white cardstock and cut it out into a strip. I added it on the tag with 3D foam tape.


I also added the dragonfly that I cut out from the new Dragonfly – Layering Dies CUTplorations. I used purple cardstock and vellum paper. I used Imagine Crafts – On Point Glue to put the dragonfly together and added it on the tag.

I finished the tag by adding some Vintage Photo Distress Ink all around the edge with make up sponge.
