Tag with Poinsettia

May 31, 2017

Hello friends, Piyanki here using the Poinsettia from Susan’s Garden to create a water color mixed media Tag!

Shaping poinsettias is what I love. I have made a red and pink Poinsettia in an earlier post which has a word background.

I used the new Distress Oxide for the background, keeping it subtle so that the flower pops.

Here is how to create this beautiful Tag:

  1. Cut chipboard in the tag shape 6.5″ x 3″. Distress the sides and sponge with distress ink.
  2. Die cut 2 pieces of Entwined Circles.
  3. Die cut 2 sets of flowers using the Poinsettia flower die. Color and shade them using distress ink.
  4. Shape the flower petals and leaves using Susan’s Metal Tool Kit.
  5. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper so that it is the same size as the chipboard tag.
  6. Sprinkle with water to prepare the base and create the background with distress ink.
  7. Lay down the die cut circle pieces, add some mesh and prepare for the flower base.
  8. Arrange the flowers, leaves and then lay it on the mesh background.
  9. Sprinkle some white paint and stone paint to finish the background.
  10. Cut a black strip of cardstock. Die cut the word Congratulations from white paper and adhere sentiment to the black cardstock piece.
  11. Adhere the sentiment to the bottom of the tag.
