Sun and Stars Tag!

Hi everyone!  I love mixed media - it means  I get to pull out paint and sprays and do a lot more of the 'messy' stuff that I don't do normally on my cards.  For today's project I incorporated all of the above into a cool and masculine birthday tag!  This is also the featured project for the Paper Wings Productions Mixed Media Monday over at The Aviary! 

I started with a kraft tag cut with my Cricut and then started in with the fun stuff.  I first sprayed the right hand side of the tag with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in Creme de Chocolat for a bit of dimension and then added some fun stamps in acrylic paints.  The focal point is the blazing sun image at the top and bottom of the tag from the  'Earth and Sky' cling set and then I added my favorite polka dots, some sets of lines and triple stamped happy birthday.

I added a gift card holder on the front along with a sweet but not too mushy sentiment.  Painted, glittered and sprayed stars along with a few metal studs accent the rest of the tag.  One of my favorite mixed media projects is to stamp on ribbon.  This is ivory twill that has been stamped with the double dot border in Staz-On ink.

There are more pictures and details on my feature post at The Aviary.  I hope you check it out there
