Saturday Showcase at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog - Big Flower Tag

This week all the gals on the Design Team are sharing the Saturday Showcase at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and creating tags with a flower theme for your inspiration.

I have made a tag with a BIG pink flower and here is how to create one like it:

  • Cover both sides of a large tag with White Gesso (Dina Wakley).

  • With a cheap bristle brush add lots of rough brush strokes using Peacock, Tangerine, Lime, Lemon and Magenta Acrylic Paint (Dina Wakley).

  • Add markings in random areas using Watering Can Archival Ink (Wendy Vecchi) and Border Lines and Faded Fragments stamp sets (Seth Apter) and #THMM101 set (Tim Holtz).

  • In random areas add Crackled Texture Paste (Wendy Vecchi) through a Harlequin stencil (Tim Holtz)
  • Once dry, replace the stencil and dry brush more Lime, Peacock and Magenta Acrylic Paint over top

  • Using Jet Black Archival Ink, stamp the large flower from the Daisy Elegance set (AALL & Create) onto some card stock three times
  • Fussy cut all three images and then remove a few outer petals from one of the images
  • Ink both sides of each image with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Use a fine brush and Carnation Acrylic Paint (Dina Wakley) paint the inside of the petals on the smaller image

  • Colour the centre of the smaller image with a White Gelly Roll pen (Sakura) followed by a Yellow Glaze Pen (Sakura)

  • Ink the edges of the tag with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Mount a Small Talk sticker (Tim Holtz) on a scrap of card stock, fussy cut and ink with Cracked Pistachio DI
  • Dye a piece of seam binding with Picked Raspberry DI

  • Use the Detailed Butterflies Mini die set (Tim Holtz) and cut a butterfly from scrap paper - I used some leftover paper that was made with Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint (Tim Holtz) on my gel plate
  • Punch some tiny butterflies from more of that leftover paper
  • Layer the three flower images using dimensional foam between the layers and add to the card
  • Glue some little dewdrops on the flower
  • Adhere the butterflies and then add the seam binding to the top
Please check out all the wonderful tags from the rest of the Design Team.  There is an abundance of lovely flowers.

  1. Charming flowers over a lovely background. I love all the stamping, embossing and layering of colors in your beautiful background. The layered flowers just pop so brightly. Fabulous tag!

  2. I love your bold pink flower over the mixed media background.Lovely creation!

  3. Cec, you tag is STUNNING! I love the painty background and oh, my goodness, that flower! Between the big bold layered flower and the more subtly colored butterflies, you have created a new favorite from my viewpoint! Love this!

  4. I think this has to be one of my all time favourites of yours Cec. The intricacy and delicacy of the tag itself is the perfect way to compliment the bold bright pink flower - it really pops xx
