A Tag with Poinsettia!

Hello friends, Piyanki here using the Poinsettia from Susan’s Garden to create a water color mixed media Tag!
Shaping poinsettias is what I love. I have made a Red and Pink Poinsettia earlier with a word background.
I used the new Distress Oxide for the background. Keeping a suttle background so that the flower pops.



How to:

  1. Cut a chipboard in the tag shape 6.5″ x 3″. Distress the sides and spunge with distress ink.
  2. Die cut 2 pieces of Entwined Circles.
  3. Die cut 2 sets of Poinsettia flower dies. Color and shade them with distress ink.
  4. Shape the flower petals and leaves using Susan’s Metal tool.
  5. Cut a piece of Water Color paper in the same size as the chipboard tag.
  6. Sprinkle with water to prepare the base and create the background with distress ink.
  7. First lay down the die cut circles pieces, add some mesh and prepare for the flower base.
  8. Arrange the flowers, leaves and then lay it on the mesh background.
  9. Sprinkle some white paint and stones to finish the background.
  10. Cut a Black strip of card Stock. Die the word Congratulations with a white paper.
  11. Adhere the sentiment at the bottom.


Love to hear from you!

Happy Crafting and see you soon!
