Stamped Hand Lettering Painted Tag


Today I have a teaser post for a soon to be released stamp set by IndigoBlu.  This set features so many beautiful "hand lettered" sentiments.  I just had to do a pretty pastel tag to celebrate spring and new beginnings.


I used the fabulous new Portrait Paint Acrylic Matte set to hand paint the background on the left.  I spritzed the panel with water to help the colors blend and went for a random/abstract look.  Next, I stamped the panel with a texture stamp from another gorgeous new stamp set repeatedly with pink ink.  I used this panel to cut some circle and clock die cut shapes.  Then I created the painted tag base on the right.  I was going for an ombre effect and used the lightest colors in the range.  Again, I spritzed the panel first with water to help the colors blend easily.


I embossed my hand lettered sentiment in white and bundled it with the other die cuts and a handmade flower from my tutorial HERE.


I added half of a butterfly die cut beneath my flower.  I kept the butterfly white for contrast.


I embossed the hearts that are included in the sentiment set randomly over the tag and gave it all a splash of Rouge paint.


I sponged the edges of the tag with pink to help it pop a little.  I hope you like this very "clean" mixed media project.  The photos just don't do it justice, but I hope you are inspired nonetheless.  Thanks for your visit and do head on over to the IndigoBlu blog to see more inspiration from our other talented designers.  <3

How pretty your ombre effect is with these colors, Autumn. It's a wonderful tag with the resist technique-look of embossing powder, and the way the inking has been carried on into the die cuts. Happiness is Dreams Come True, right? hugs, de

The soft ombre on the background is the perfect foil for the stronger colours on the circles. Love the white embossing and I look forward to seeing the new stamp set of lettering. Beautiful work.

Oh,my Goodness! this is stunning, Autumn! I love the 'clean mixed media look' you've created, and am giggling here because I recently made an off the page, clean mixed media tag. (way different though) This is a different look for you, but I have to say it is BEAUTIFUL! I love the clock, the flower and the ombre effect on the background! Really cool piece! Hugs!
