Just Lion Around - Mixed Media Tag Tutorial by Shilpa

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

Today, I would like to share with you a  mixed media tag with Rubber Dance Stamps. 

I've used Rubber Dance African Animals Stamp set here with few other stamps.

Let's see making procedure,

On thick white tag, I started stamping Text and Flourishes with black archival ink.

To create good base for my further layers, I applied Clear gesso to whole surface.

For texture layer, I applied Crackle paste through stencil and let it dry completely.

I wanted to used Charcoal here... to get the desired effect, I mixed Charcoal with Clear Gesso and water and applied to the tag

After drying first layer, I applied, yellow/ brown/ orange watercolors randomly to the surface.

I stamped Lion image on watercolor card.

I colored him with watercolors and cut it to adhere on the tag.

After adding sentiment "Just Lion around" from same stamp set, my tag was ready..
I enjoyed making this fun creation !!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
