Mixed Media tag with Havana Nights

Hello Kaisercraft fans!

Emmy here with my last post for February. This time I decided to go mixed-media creating a tag featuring Kaisercraft’s Havana Nights collection (available at Merly Impressions’ online store).MI-mixed-media-tag-web-530And here is a short tutorial on how I did it:

MI-mixed-media-tag-det-a (1)For the base of my tag I used a ready-made tag from Ranger. I added colour to it by blending Distress Ink Pad – Tea Dye with Distress Ink Pad – Vintage Photo. MI-mixed-media-tag-det-a (2)Then I picked two of the pattern papers from the Havana Nights collection, Ferns and Clay, and I cut tow panels slightly smaller then the tag base. MI-mixed-media-tag-det-a (3)Using the Clear Stamps set matching the collection and Ink Pad – Bark I added the folaige pattern on one of the panels. Then using the Foliage Mini Designer Stencil with Texture Paste I added the white dimensional pattern on top of it. MI-mixed-media-tag-det-b (1)Once everything has dried, I distressed the edges of the pattern paper panels and sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink – Antique Gold and KaiserMist Spray Ink – Denim on top of all the layers. MI-mixed-media-tag-det-b (2)I used various die cut elements and pre cut embellishments to create my tag.

MI-mixed-media-tag-det-c (2)For the die cut elements I used Decorative Die – Texture Woven, Film Edges die, Mini Foliage die and various pattern papers from the  Paper Pad. I used pre cut embellishments from the Collectables Pack and the Paper Pad. To adhere everything together I used Mounting Foam TapeMI-mixed-media-tag-det-c (1)For the flower spread I used  Paper Blooms – Coral and die cut foliage, which I embellished with Rhinestones – SilverMI-mixed-media-tag-det-d (2)As a final touch I tied White LaceJute Cord – Grey and Mixed Hemp Cord – Ocean together.MI-mixed-media-tag-det-d (3)I hope I managed to inspire you today!

Have an amazing weekend!
