Making presents with Things with Wings by Mariken

 Hi everyone, 
Mariken here, and today it's all about tags and making a present.

I started making a background with acrylic paint and my gelliplate.
Put some drops on the gelliplate.

With my fingers I made little dots on the plate and made a print.

 Just a thin layer with acrylic paint and I've made a second print, a ghost print.
  That's the one I love most!

 Now it's time to make some tags, or circles...

... and add some marks with white embossing powder.

On a white paper I made a sheet full of colors with blendable inks or Distress inks.

  Then I stamped the Things with Wings on this paper and cut them out.

I've made my own wrappingpaper with tissuepaper and some stamps. 
It corresponds with the tags so beautiful.

I made some marks with black ink and the stamps from Mixed Media Marks.

Finally, I wrapped a bar of chocolate, and with a matching tag you have a lovely present!

Here are the stamps I've used: 

A little reminder that our Mood Board Challenge July continues in
We hope to see you there.
