Awesome birthday - Mixed Media Tag by Melina
It`s Melina here, and today I share this birthday tag with you.
I started by go wild with my Distress oxides on a tag.
Lots of different layers. One of the background stamps I used is Grungy Harlequin.
When dry I stamped my quote from the Happy Birthday stamp set.
I grabbed my Beautiful Bugs stamp set and stamped once directly on the tag to get the details,
and once more on a scrap piece of paper.
I cut the bodys of the bugs out and coloured them with Distress crayons. I used them as watercolours and applied them with a waterbrush. I wanted the colouring on the bugs to be very subtle, as my background is very busy.
I glued my bugs in place and added the finishing touches. A black line around the tag, white highlights on some of the letters and the bees and wink of Stella glitter on the wings.
My tag is finished!
