Penny Black Christmas Poinsettia Mixed Media Tag

tag 1
 Welcome again to my week long Penny Black celebration!  I'm thrilled to have my first GD position at Penny Black Stamps & More Challenge Blog and hope you'll head on over and let them know if you like my projects.  :)  Today I am sharing a mixed media tag with you featuring all Penny Black stamps.
tag 2
 I made this gorgeous watercolor background by dipping my tag into a very watery pool of Evergreen Bough and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks.  I heat set the puddles between each layer.  Next I stamped Winter Scroll using the remaining puddle of ink onto my tag randomly.  I heat set completely, then used my embossing buddy to prepare for embossing Winter Bough in white.
tag 3
 I embossed Winter Glow (the poinsettia) in white and cut it out.  I layered it over some die cut holly leaves from scrap (TH die) and stamped the poinsettia center in Evergreen Bough and cut it out to layer over the flower.  I added some DIY tattered and dyed ribbon from THIS tutorial as a topper, and hot glued a snowflake embellishment to the loop.  If you're interested in trying some mixed media/altered techniques, take a closer look at some of your stamps and see if they can be used in a less traditional way.  This is so much fun!

Lush colours on today's creation Autumn and the Poinsettia is one of my favourites, I have the very old wood mounted version and it comes out time and again.

This tag is amazing Autumn!! LOVE the watercoloured background ... and that you used the same stamp to mimic the design before white heat embossing it over top ... fantastic design! Your layered poinsettia is gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful tag at my Twelve Tags of Christmas event.
