My Bestie Mermaid Mixed Media Tag

Hello Besties! Today I want to share with you my most recent Design Team Project for the Color It, Create It, Show It Off Challenge Blog. For my project I created a Mixed Media My Bestie Mermaid Tag.

To create my tag I used a My Bestie Digital Stamp by Sherri Baldy called Lil Ragmuffin Mermaid that you can find here:

You can also find our current challenge for the Color It, Create It, Show It Off Challenge Blog here:
Our challenge is always anything goes. We invite you to enter your own creations for your chance to win some Amazing Bestie prizes!

To make my tag first I printed out the digital stamp onto plain white 110 lb. card stock. I then colored this sweet mermaid in with Copics, and then added the highlights with Prismacolor Premier Pencils. After that I fussy cut her, and inked the paper edges with Colorbox Chalk Ink in Ocean Blue.

Next I created the Tag base. First I used Golden Acrylic Paint to add my base colors. I then used a stencil and Gesso to add some extra texture. Once the Gesso dried I then added another layer of Acrylic paint and let it dry. After that I glued various flowers, rhinestones, jewels, feathers, doily's and sequins to my tag base to add extra embellishment and interest. To finish I then attached my mermaid with foam tape, and then added ribbon to the top of my tag.

I hope that you enjoy my project, and are inspired to try out your own mixed media tag. I wish you all a wonderful day! DT Mindy
