Bee Crafty – Tutorial – Journey

This mixed media tag was created using the brand new TODAY Art Stamps Butterflies & Birds XL!!

Die cut three solid black butterflies, three butterflies in white and three on patterned paper.

The white and coloured butterflies were heat embossed and then layered – black on the bottom, white and then the colour.

Create the mixed media collaged background.

I used Distress Crayons to create the background colours on the tag, together with coordinating scraps of paper.

Using a stencil and texture paste add to the tag creating dimension.

I used a D’Inkable stencil from set one, the hearts, and added to the stencil with Distress Oxide.

Added black ink and the sentiment, and some black hearts.

Back the tag onto some black card to create a frame around the tag.

Add the layered butterflies and a pearl in each centre. Finish off with ribbon.
