This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Mixed Media Tag - Sizzix / Craft Stamper August Take it Make it Challenge

Hello Everyone

I am still "tagging" you with lots of tags and so I have another one to share with you today.

I am also entering this for the Craft Stamper August Take it Make it Challenge

Here's my tag.

I used Distress inks, stamps, a Tim Holtz stencil and a Sizzix embossing folder to create the background.

Believe it or not, I used the Sizzix embossing folder to create the swirly patterns on the background.

Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders 4PK - Springtime Background & Borders Set

Item #657491
I used the first border embossing folder in this set, inked it up and used it as a stamp on the tag.
Here's a close-up.

The stamped flowers are a free stamp from a previous Craft Stamper magazine.
I used watercolour pencils to colour them. I then cut a few layers and layered them up for dimension.

I had a lot of fun creating this tag and I am really happy with the result too! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have an awesome evening!
