PaperArtsy Dragonfly Tag by Jenny

Hi everyone and welcome. I'm so excited to have been invited to join you all here at MarteLAB alongside so many amazing designers. Today I've got a mixed media tag to share with you that features the wonderful designs of Kay Carley. Here's the tag;

And here's how it came together using the PaperArtsy stamp set EKC06 and stencil PS059;

After stamping the large flower stem on a piece of tea stained copier paper with permanent black ink I added the words from the set around the border. A little water was mixed to Insfusions 'In The Navy' and 'Violetta' so I could paint the flowers, first with the Violetta, then with the In the Navy over the top.

After repeating this process on extra layers of paper I cut around them and layered them onto the original to give the flowers more delicacy and depth. The stem was painted with Infusions 'Slime' mixed with water. To finish dots of white gel pen were added to the centre of each individual flower.

I covered a large thick board tag in layers of blue, purple and cream paint and then stamped more of the flowers and stems from the stamp set onto it with permanent black ink. Over the top I stencilled more flower heads with texture paste, painting it after with lime green paint to match the stem in the large panel.

To finish I added the stamped flower panel to the tag with lace trim underneath. The dragonflies were stamped onto painted paper stuck onto acetate so it could be moulded with some heat. To give the dragonflies a shimmery look try using PaperArtsy Metallic Finish Glaze. Finally I tied a large bow onto the top of the tag and glued some iridescent gems next to the stem.

Here are some close ups of the finished tag;

I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project and can see the beauty in Kay Carley's stamp set. The stamps, stencil and Infusions are all available in the Marte store along with lots more PaperArtsy sets so make sure to check them out.

Thanks for visiting
