Mix Media Tag

Hello Friends, thank you for coming by my blog today for another Wednesday Quick Tip using Brutus Monroe stamps and products, every Wednesday you can find a blog hop at the Brutus Monroe blog featuring a product or technique of the week!, all the Design Team works very hard to share great inspiration for you!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are focusing on the beautiful techniques of Mix Media.  I had to admit I was a little intimidated by it, but after 10,000 Mix Media videos I came up with this tag that I loved!!! I think even though is completely out of my comfort zone of creating, I had so much fun making it, and I am already planning to explore more on this Mix Media techniques.


I started with a Jumbo Media Tag and one of my favorite Brutus Monroe Stencils called Pugsley, I inked the entire tag with Rock Candy Surface Ink this created a very soft color, after that I embossed the right corner of the tag with the embossing folder Petal Lace and added Sea Surface Ink mixed with a little water.

I added brown ink to the edges for a more rusty look and I also added Metallic Sterling Embossing Powder to the raised areas on the embossed parts of the flower.

I cut from an old book a piece to add interest to the tag and adhere it to the right corner.  I stamped a long phrase with Raven Embossing Powder.  I stamped the bunny from Be Unique stamp set and adhere it with the words NORMAL IS BORING from the same set, I also added a silver heart and some black and white splashes to finish the look.
The quick tip today is: Try something new, you can have a surprise! 

Have a nice day!
