See How to Use Inkers for a Mixed Media Tag

This month’s color, Coral offers so many possibilities. I pulled out all my products in those shades and created a bright and beautiful gift tag perfect for tying around a gift. I love making tags instead of cards – so quick and easy and just the right size to experiments and create some fun effects.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Add a few drops of dye ink refill ink onto watercolor paper and mist with water. Keep adding drops of ink and mist with water until you are happy with the look.


Step 2

Use a tag template and cut your colored paper into a tag shape.


Step 3

Stamp birds and sentiment onto smooth white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.


Step 4

Add a few drops of re-inker ink onto your craft mat. Mist water next to the ink. Pick up a small amount of water and mix with the ink and then paint your bird images.


Step 5

Mist your tag and painted birds using Shimmer Spray in Frost. It gives the end product a beautiful shimmer.


Step 6

Trim your sentiment strip and adhere it to the bottom of your tag. Adhere to the painted birdie above the sentiment. Add additional stamped detail to the left of the tag and the background. Use inks to add splatters over the tag for some interest.
