Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a gift card and tag set I created with the fabulous September Scraps of Elegance kit. One of my sweet scrapbooking friends is expecting her first baby. Tiff is an elementary school art teacher and a mentor when it comes to combining colors so I wanted to create something extra special for her. Her baby decor colors are green, pink, and watermelon, so the tag is also designed to be a wallhanging for Aly's room.
I've created a process video sharing the steps and techniques
used to create my shabby chic, mixed media wallhanging tag.
I'm featuring a background technique using the
Rebecca Baer Moroccan Tile & Vine Stencil.
(Similar techniques are used to create the card.)

Here's the fabulous Lisa's Sweet September Kit:
I've also used the following for my card & tag set:
Here you can see the texture details. I'm really enjoying the US ArtquestPrills that have been coming in the kits. (Also available in the SOD Store) These tiny pearl-like beads as you can see, are all different sizes, giving additional visual dimension and texture. Dry brushing and pooling with mist as shown in the video adds depth to the texture they create.
Here you can see the layered design created with the Rebecca Baer Stencil.
Here's a shot of the card. As you can see, the techniques used here are similar to those employed for the tag.
One final shot.

I am blessed to work in an industry I love. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am currently working as a freelance designer in some capacity for the following companies: Donna Salazar Designs, Scraps of Elegance, and ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated by these companies in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don't personally use and enjoy.
