Mixed Media Tags w Dina Wakely Bird Stamps

Dear Reader,

I am continuing on this mixed media train and enjoying the ride!
I recently got my hands on this gorgeous stamp set by Dina Wakely!! Have been wanting this one for a few years now!


Yippee... lets get stamping :)


First step, stamping on  200 gram field paper
Second stamp, water colour to hearts content.

Next, I followed a tutorial by Dina herself which you can find here.

Here are my tags, each a little different from the other.

This tag has the bird stamped on and cut out and pasted on. The background is mixture of deer green and lime. The bird is coloured in with water coolers ad the sentiment is stamped on paper and also pasted on.


This tag is similar to the first using a combination of raspberry acrylic paint and orange.


On this tag, the bird is stamped straight onto the acrylic background and so too is the sentiment. The bird is coloured in with acrylic paint.


For this one, I painted a cute hat on the bird but the sentiment here is stamped on paper and pasted,.
The addition of a red heart as well as the hat on the bird is Dina's idea and she talks about it in her video. I love them so much and I learnt so much from listening to her tutorial.


Sneak peek for what's coming up in my next post:


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you had found inspiration here.
Happy Crafting.
