Aquarelle Background Tags


My name is Patricia Chalas and this is my first project to share with you as a guest designer with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.  I have created Aquarelle Background Tags today using Mixed Media Aquarelles & Ink.

I started gathering some of my supplies: Red Mix & Match Aquarelles & Ink set, PITT artist Pen big brush: white & pink madder lake, tags, stamps and scissors.

Step 1

Then, I colored each tag combining the aquarelle pencils that comes in the kit I used all 3 colors in each tag. And it looked like this.

Step 2

Then I used the brush that comes in the kit to blend and disperse the color trying not to blend to much one color into the other when you’re done you should have something like this


Now using your PITT artist pen big brush stamp your image I stamped on the corner but you can do it anywhere you like!  I used PITT artist pen big brush: Red and pink madder.

Step 5

Then with PITT artist pen White I added a dotted border to each one

Step 6

After your done you can embellish your tag as desire, for mine I used some ribbon, white twine and ringtones and as the final touch the variety of sentiments.

Step 7

Here’s the final tags ready to use!

I hope you've enjoyed today's project. Have a great day!!
