Soar tag – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share a step-by-step mixed media project at the STAMPlorations blog and I thought I´d do something a little bit outside of my comfort zone. I created with flower patterned paper :). I rarely do! Here is what I did:

See, during the summer months I managed to buy some sale items from Fancy Pants Designs – older collections and I really fell in love with their Golden Days collection. I just adore the paper design which truly is not very „me“. So I took on a challenge to create a tag with this beautiful paper that I would normally not use for such purposes (if at all), since it is not my „go to“ style.

 But I just couldn´t help myself after seeing the delicious colors of this collection.

 Since the pattern is very bold on it´s own, it didn´t leave me that many possibilities to add to it, so I kept quite clean and simple, but still managed to add some mixed media bits and bobs to it!

 Here is what I did:

1. I fussy cut the paper into a size of a manila tag that I had in my stash.
2. I then took an iridescent toned glitter paste (I seem to have an affection towards iridescent lately..) and added some loose golden glitter to it to create a glitter paste that matches the colors of the tag.
3. Next I applied the paste thru the stencil, added white outlining and decorated the tag with die cut pieces, a stamped tag, wood veneer and some glitter glue.

Here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch! Hope you get inspired!!!

Happy crafting,

xxx, Sanna
