Mixed Media Tag & Card Set with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance September Kit

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 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.
