Maritime mixed media tag – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there! It´s my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today again and I´d like to share a maritime mixed media tag with you!

Sanna LippertI am definitely a summer person and I love sun, sand and sea. When I saw the new Joset Designs Ahoy Stamp set, I immediately wanted to create something summery. That is what inspired me to create this tag.
Sanna Lippert Here is how I created the tag:

  1. Take two white tags, one bigger and the second slightly smaller. Start with the bigger tag. First stamp anchors onto the background with embossing ink.
    Then apply clear embossing powder over the tag. Dab the residue off and heat set with a heat gun.
  2. Now take a blue water solvent ink and apply directly onto the background. Next spray water mist over the area. This way the ink spreads all over. Let dry and then carefully wipe with a damp cloth or a baby wipe over the tag. This will remove the residue ink from the heat embossed anchor images.
  3. Move to the smaller tag. Add a sentiment with black waterproof ink into the middle. Let dry.
  4. Now use a spray ink to color the surface of the tag. Let air dry or use a heat gun for drying.
  5. Take a red Through the Lens – Metal paper and die cut small stars with the Boat die cut set by Joset Designs from that paper.
  6. Take another sheet of Through the Lens paper. This time from the Stone set. Die cut waves with the Boat die cut set.
  7. Add lighter and darker blue spray ink tones to the die cut wave pieces. Let dry.
  8. Glue the waves with paper glue overlappingly. Adhere the stars onto the tag. Attach a strip of burlap yarn with a stapler onto the bottom of the tag.
  9. Use a black paint pen to draw faux stitching around the bigger tag. Adhere a piece of paper straw onto the left side of the tag. Adhere two strips of blue burlap yarn next to the straw. Embellish with ribbon, hemp cord, mini clothespins and metal pins.
  10. Adhere the smaller tag onto the bigger tag. Add stapled elements on top and onto the bottom for additional interest.

Here are detail photos of the finished project:

I hope you get inspired to create a mixed media tag. These are a nice addition to a present, for example.

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Hello lovelies! Have you already seen the ueber lovely ScrapBerry´s products in the Pipilonia shop? Well, I have :)! And I immediately fell in love with the travel/maritime themed paper collection as they perfectly matched our holiday photos from this summer :).

I also could not pass this paper padCarta Bella is one of my favorites anyhow and these papers and colours were just perfect for our summer holiday photos!! Just could not pass them ;-)…
