Mixed Media Backgrounds

Hey there!  I hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather, but where did May go?  Hmmm... it sure does fly by faster and faster.  But today I have a fun, steampunkish, tag tutorial I want to share.  I am using a new (to me) stamp set that I just got from Sin City Stamps using one of my favorite images, hot air balloons.  I have prepared a video tutorial to show you all the fun you can have using all of these products together.  So let's get started.








Supplies:

Sin City Stamps
ColourArte Primary Elements Artist Pigments:
ColourArte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist:
Gina's Designs Lasercut Chipboard
  • Steampunk 2 Shape Set
  • Word Ribbons 4

Clear Gesso (Liquitex)
Gum Arabic (Winsor & Newton)

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I have inspired you to try these great products.  You see how beautifully they work together, stamps, chipboard, and paints, ooh la la!

Have a wonderful, creative weekend!
