Valentine's Day tags and a tutorial 23

Hi! Love is in the air! Today it's my turn to share a few projects on the Prima blog. Please feel free to stop by and say hi HERE :) We were asked to create tags using a red, pink and white color palette along with adhesive rub ons and or foils.
 created a couple mixed media tags just in time for Valentine’s Day featuring both:
I created a Valentine’s Day tag featuring an oil pastel water colored die cut heart which showcases a rub on I love you sentiment covered with gold foil. I stamped pretty flowers using oil pastels and embossing powder then layered with the foil sentiment along with a variety of stamped flowers, flower embellishments and a resin cupid.

The second tag is a bit more on the shabby side:
I combined pretty papers from the beautiful Salvage District along with a variety of beautiful blossoms and Micro Bead covered die cut hearts. For a splash of pink, I randomly splattered shimmery Metallique Vintage Rose acrylic paint to the background:

Here are a few steps I took along the way:
Step 1:
Die cut heart using watercolor paper using metal die. Trim adhesive rub on “I love you” sentiment from carrier sheet, apply to die cut heart then apply gold foil. Color with Red Oil Pastel then apply water using a paintbrush to “move” the pigment around. Dry and set aside.

Step 2:
Die cut watercolor paper using metal die. Apply Red Oil Pastel to solid part of floral stamp, lightly mist with water, stamp. Repeat process randomly until desired look is achieved. Stamp and emboss leaves.

Step 3:
Using a stamp from the IOD stamp set, stamp on a piece of watercolor paper, trim and distress around edges.

Step 4.
Assemble tag and embellish as desired. Enjoy :)
