Making a Steam Punk Tag with Dew Drops

Let’s make a Steam Punk Tag using mixed media techniques, Dew Drops, paper and cogs.  First of all, lets look at what you’ll need.
 

 

 

 

Ingredients:
 
#5 Manila Tag
Walnut Ink, mixed in water in a large spaghetti sauce container
Paper Towels
Brusho Watercolor powders in lemon, orange and dark brown
Distress Collage Medium by Ranger in Crazing
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Stamps – Faded Type
Stayz on Ink – Black Onyx
Round punch – one inch
Vintage Paper – mine is from the late 1800s
Lazer Cutz Cogs by Mike Deakin Art
Distress Crayon Ranger Tim Holtz – Vintage Photo
Archival Seeds in Honey Passion
Let’s Begin:
 
1. Get a plain #5 Manila Tag and crumple it up.  Mix walnut ink crystals in a spaghetti sauce glass jar and warm water.  When mixed, drop the crumpled tag into it.  Leave to soak over night or 24 hours.
 
 
2.  Take Brusho water color powders in dark brown, orange and lemon yellow.  Sprinkle small amounts on tag and spritz with water.  The watercolors will spread.  If you like it, leave it, otherwise add some more and spritz again.  Let dry overnight.
3.  Once dry, paint with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing.  Let dry until crackled.

4.  Stamp randomly with the stamp of your choice, I used the new Stampers Anonymous  Tim Holtz Faded Type stamps with black onyx ink.

5.  Punch one inch circles from vintage paper, and adhere to tag.
6.  Add Lazer Cutz to the tag.
7. Embellish tag and circles with Distress Crayon, I used vintage photo.  Blend with your fingers or cotton swab.
8. Embellish with Archival Seeds and Mini Dew Drops using liquid adhesive.

9.  Let dry and enjoy!

How to Add Dew Drops on a Mixed Media Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here. Today I’ll be sharing with you my first project of 2020, which is a lovely soft toned mixed media tag. The lovely neon pink dewdrops goes so well with the muted pink and gold background and add an interest to the project. I’ve been inspired by the beginning of a new year to add the sentiment ‘A new beginning’.

Here’s some closeup photos-
