Trio of Mixed Media Tags and a Tutorial 36

Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! Once Tina and I took our early morning bike ride, my family had a relaxing Sunday afternoon at home :) Technically, it's still Day 3 of the MFT April Teasers! You will be able to buy all the new stamps and Die-namics on April 9th at 10 PM EST right HERE at the MFT boutique. Although it's not my assigned day to post, I still have a trio of mixed media tags to share that I made featuring 3 beautiful sentiments included in the LJD Sweet Roses stamp set along with one of the fun designs from LLD Border It - Mod Borders. Since the color pink is one of my personal favorite colors, I'm going to share that one first ;)

The LJD Sweet Roses stamp set is full of sweet roses and MANY versatile sentiments. That is one of the reasons I opted to make a trio of tags :) The first tag features the you're a Sweet friend sentiment from LJD Sweet Roses.
ALL three tags are similar in that each feature a home made canvas rose that was made using Die-namics Layered Rose but nearly all the other embellishments are different. The rose shown on this tag was colored using a combination of MFT Razzle Berry ink and MFT Kraft ink. (Shown below is tutorial).
Up next is a tag featuring the Thank You sentiment from LJD Sweet Roses along with a Orange Fizz canvas rose. I randomly stamped on the tags using one of the fun images from LLD Border It - Mod Borders.
What's not to love about the look of Orange Fizz and Kraft together? :)
Last but not least is a tag featuring the Hello sentiment from LJD Sweet Roses along with a Blu Raspberry canvas rose.
Each tag also features a die cut border made using one of the dies from Die-namics Open Simply Scallops Trio.
In case you were curious to know how I created the canvas roses featured on my tags, here is a tutorial:
Step 1: Die cut canvas using Die-namics Layered Rose.
Step 2: Mix a several drops of preferred MFT ink in a mister and mix with about a Tablespoon of water. ***Test for desired color. NOTE: The richer the color desired use less water and more ink*** 
Orange Fizz and Kraft MFT Razzle Berry ink MFT Kraft ink. (Shown below is tutorial).
Step 3: Once dry, layer and attach using a brad.
To create the texture on the tags, I mixed a small amount of Gesso with Molding paste, then randomly applied using a piece of mesh for the design.
Once molding paste mixture was dry, I misted the tags using the same colors as were used to create the roses.
I also custom colored coordinating ribbon for the tags using Kraft ink:
Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my tags! I'll be back Tuesday to share a project I made for the New Product Tour.

Be Sweet ;)
