Create a fun tag to welcome in that little one with die cut embellishments and layers of Radiant Neon inks. Customize any project by creating a brand new color of ink by layering (not blending) Radiant Neon Electric Blue and Electric Green inks as I did on this darling little mixed media tag.
Here is a swatch card to illustrate how the color is created. A color that I like to call Electric Wintergreen.
Sponge Electric Green ink over the entire tag. Let the ink dry completely before step 2.
Sponge Electric Blue ink over the Electric Green creating an entirely new color…wintergreen! Let dry.
Position stencil over the tag and temporarily secure.
Spread Green Creative Medium over the stencil with a palette knife.
Carefully remove the stencil and clean.
Once the initial layer of Creative Medium has dried, reposition the stencil on the bottom half of the tag and apply Creative Medium to this portion of the tag.
Die-cut desired pieces from white cardstock.
Custom color each die-cut as desired. Apply Shimmer Pico Embellisher to heart, “baby” and “welcome” for additional depth and dimension.
Adhere the die-cuts and additional embellishments to the tag as desired.
