Mixed Media Father’s Day Tags

Hello Everyone!!! Today is my turn on the Helmar Creative Blog and I was given the theme of Men. So I decided to create some tags for Father’s Day.

To start with the tags I used Distress Oxide Ink in Tea Dye and stamped it on my craft mat. Then sprayed some water and smooshed my tag through the ink.

I used the same technique using Frayed Burlap making sure I dried between each colour.

I then sprayed a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative Spray to seal those colours and then added Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink. This spray stops the colours from turning into a muddy mess.

I used the same technique again with Peeled Paint Oxide Ink and used my heat gun to dry.

Then inked around the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I added some stamping using black archival ink and some Tim Holtz stamps.

I wanted to add some texture so I stamped this Darkroom Door stamp onto some calico and frayed the edges.

Then used Helmar Fabric Glue to adhere it to the tag.

To add some height I used Helmar Scrap Dots adhesive to the back of my gentleman and placed them onto my tag.

Then to finish the tag off I stamped some letters onto some white cardstock and used Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides. Then adhered them to the tag using Helmar Premium Craft Glue.
