SplitCoast Stampers Mixed Media Challenge~

Hello my Friends!
Today I am sharing a tag that I made for the Mix8 Mix-Ability Challenge over at SCS and is being hosted by my friend Trudy from
 True's Gifts from the Heart.

Mixed Media tag using ranger products

I started off with just a plain manilla craft tag by Ranger. I pulled out my Adirondack Alcohol Inks to create my base background on the tag. I used Latte, Butterscotch, Meadow, Slate and Gold Mixative with some blending solution. I then ripped up several pieces of a doily and some papers from the Enchanted Paisley line from DCWV. I used some Mod podge to coat and let it dry. Once it was dry, I stamped a flourish background stamp by Anna Giffin using my Ranger archivial black ink. I then added a few rub-ons from 7Gypsies from their "Victoriana" Steampunk line and a feather that I used the same alochol inks on, to make it match the tag background. I then coated it up again with more Mod podge and let it dry. To finish off the tag, I added some burlap ribbon and twine with a key charm by Graphic45 and a decorative button by Bo Bunny.
Well thats it for today. Thank you for stopping by!
