Card/ Tag Challenge and TUTE!

Hello Everyone! Another Card/ Tag Challenge is here at the Flying Unicorn Forums!

I hope you can take the time to play along. I have prepared a tag for you as inspiration piece and have added a quick picture tute on how I came about this process.

I have been following January's Special Creative Jumpstart Summit- I was watching Julie Fei- Fan Balzer create a tag using several mediums and I thought I would try something different from my norm. Typically I dont do a whole lot of tags and I also dont go so bold in color- But there is always times that it is good to try new things and grow as a crafter so I took the time to try this.... the following is a photo process of exactly step by step how I came to my final product!

Gather product....

Using a makeup sponge, ink on your design using a stencil....

Next, block off any areas you don't want misted, and MIST AWAY!

Here I took a gelato and used it to fill in my chevron stencil.....Use your finger to blend a bit....

Result..... Nice layers, but I am missing some boldness.....

Time to take another stencil and some paint and add black hearts....

Time to add detail. I took a white ink pen and added details to my hearts and chevron. This also tones the all the black down a bit.... don't need to go TOO

Add some embellies and your are done! 

So here is my challenge for you, step out of the box, and create a card or tag that is BOLD and screams playful and fun! You have to use s bit of black and the colors have to be bold and bright....easy enough right?!
