Mixed Media "Love" Tag by ~ Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone. It's Tracey here to share a mixed media tag I created using lots of Donna's products. Valentine's Day is Friday. and I have some love inspiration to share with you.

Love Tag

Tips and Techniques
Donna's products are so yummy for mixed media creations. She has some gorgeous stamps created by Art Gone Wild. I started out by stamping the tag with her crackle stamp using Mix'd Media CHOX Inx, then dded the stanza stamping at the bottom. If you are stamping before misting, It's a great idea to used Donna's CHOX inks which are permanent. The regular Mix'd Media Inx are water based and tend to bleed and shift when misted. That can be a very cool effect, but not what I was looking for here. 

Next I used Donna's Want2Scrap Love Stencil with Polka Dots and Arrow with light molding paste to create the word love and the polka dot heart. I then heat embossed with MMI Embossing powders.

I did some more stamping around the tag with Donna's Dear Sir and Vine stamps then used my handy dandy Distrezz-it-All by Zutter on all the edges. Once everything was good and dry, I misted the tag with water, then Donna's Clearsnap Smooch Spritz in Tea Party and Caramel Latte. I spritzed with a little more water and tapped the tag to drip excess mist down the tag. I adore how the mist pooled onto the embossed molding paste. Now, I'm not one to waste much, so I dragged the distezzed edges of my tag through the overspray mist on my craft mat to color. There was still a small amount of mist on my mat, so I spritzed it with more water and colored my seam binding ribbon with the remaining color. I pulled the ribbon through the color to allow for grungy variations. 

Here's a new flower I've created I will be sharing a tutorial for this Lacey Open Rose inmy next post. So be sure to come back February 22 for the details. Before using up the last of the mist on my mat for my ribbon, I brushed some of it across my flower and leafy die cut. 

Finally, I dabbed the flower, lace, and edges with Glue Gloss, then sprinkled with Donna's Fairy Dust Glitter in Pralines and Cream. 

Thanks for stopping by today!!
