Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this tag. This mixed media tag measures 12" x 6.49" (30cm x 16.5cm). Make a tag from the above measurements using a cardboard posting box or from craft board. Cover the tag base with strips of design paper found in the paper pad or left over from another project. Die cut an assortment of the frames listed or use left overs from previous projects. Make the tag whole circles from the Large Camellia Carnation die set. 6 layers are used. Make the flowers and leaves.

To make the flowers: Taking the white card-stock stamp the Peonies and leaves using archival inks then bring color to the petals and leaves using the viva stamping inks and sponge. The viva ink will bring silver toned metallic ink to your flowers. Water-mist the petals then use the rose flower mold to bring shape to the flowers. The silver color that will be left in the molds can be washed out after you are done. To protect your shaping mat, place a paper kitchen towel over the mat while in use. After the petals have been shaped with the flower mold using the flower shaping tools and mat to ball the flower centers. The first 2 petals will be balled into a ball to form the peony center bud then the remaining 3 petals will be formed and adhered to surround the bud. These flowers are adhered with the hot glue gun, the clear drying glue could also be used but this takes longer to dry and set. 3 flowers made using the largest size flower from the Large Sweet Peony set and from the Small Sweet Peony set 6 small sized flowers, all made with 4 flower petals.2 large peony flat buds and 2 small buds 7 large and 14 small leaves, 25 lilac flowers are used for this tag

Make the butterflies. To make the butterfly: Taking the stamp and matching die, apply ink to the stamp then stamp the image onto white cardstock. Do this x 3. Die cut the butterflies. Trim away the swirls from x 2 of the butterflies. The complete butterfly goes on top Adhere together at the body. Adhere the body and swirls to the tag, leaving the wings lose so they appear to be flying.

Once the flowers and butterfly is placed and adhered to the tag, apply clear drying glue to where the beads etc. are wanted. Sprinkle the beads onto the glue and leave to dry. Adhere the 1/2 crystals in place. When dry apply gesso with a paintbrush to the flowers, butterflies and embellishments not to forget all the hidden hooks of the 3d embellishments. Thus covering completely the tag with gesso. This is called dry brushing as you apply the gesso with very little on the brush, almost dry. Cover the embellishments, one layer at a time. Enough so you cover the bright colors but not too much so you will not see the stamping and colors at all. When the gesso is dry, Taking the Lindy's sprays, spray the colors to the tag around the base of the flowers and embellishments. Leave to dry before adding more colors or layers of color. Remember you are bringing color back into the project but you do not want too much. So add color in layers, a little at a time. If you add too much, wait till it is dry then apply a layer of gesso to bring it back to neutral. Remember this is mixed media and any thing can happen, that's why it is so much fun. When all is dry apply glue to where you want the glitter and glass glitter, sprinkle and leave to dry. Shake the extra glitter off into a tray or paper then back into the container. Taking the sentiment from the Banners of Love stamp and matching die set. Make the banner by stamping with ink then with the clear embossing powder. Die cut then adhere to the tag with the hot glue gun.
