Watercolor Tags with Brushos and STAMPlorations

Hi my dear crafty friends!

I want to give you step by step instructions for these two watercolor tags. I used one of my Brusho backgrounds. I love to play with these awesome powders.

1. Create a background with Brusho powders. I alternate in adding water with a spray bottle and Brusho pigments until I am happy.

2. I have a homemade tag stencil with which I can choose where to cut my tags from.

3. I ended up with these two backgrounds:

4. To add some texture to them I use the ARTplorations stencils "Nestled Circles", "Square Links" and "Tribal Swirl". Instead of adding any color through the stencils, I only add water with a spray bottle.

5. Remove the stencil and let the color react with the water. Dab it off with a paper towel. You'll end up with some pretty ghosting textures.

 6. My background is not done yet. I add some splatters for more interest.

7. Now it's time to stamp the main images and the titles. I use black pigment ink together with the "Small Birds" and the " Large Hummingbird" stamp set.

8. The sentiments are from the "Font Expressions" and "Follow your Arrow" sets.

 9. Finally I color the images. I use Pastel Pencils for the first one...

... and colored pencils for the second.

Thank you for stopping by today!!!
xx Susanne.

Mixed Media Tag with Rubber Dance

Hi there!

I want to share a tag today which was made for the Rubber Dance May colour challenge. You can join the fun here until Sunday.

I started with a gelli printed tag. To get some more interest on my background I stamped images from the Rubber Dance Pick a Number set randomly. The flowers and some more background textures are from the Textured Flowers set.

If you want to order over at the Rubber Dance web shop, you can use the code "SRFreeShip" to get free shipping on all orders over 15€ worldwide!

The sentiment comes also from Rubber Dance. You will find all stamps I've used in the supply list.
Thanks for stopping by,
