Mixed Media Tag @ MHKDesigns

{My DT work for MHKDesigns}

Happy September! Welcome to another monthly challenge at MHKDesigns.
We bring you fabulous digistamp vintages images in our creations to give you some inspirations. Take a peek here to see what my fellow design teammates have made using MHKDesigns digistamps that are obtainable at the store.

I made a tag using combination of some mixed media elements in the background and highlighting the flowers with contrasting colors from the shades of brown.
 For this project, I used two digistamp sets, Birdcage Silhouettes and Get Well Flowers.

 I printed some flowers and fussy cut to adhere on my the background with pva glue. I like using this glue a lot in all my projects.
 I glued down a piece of gauze when I started the process to create pattern and texture as well. Then I applied modeling paste through a stencil as always.
 I used Faber Castell black watercolor pencil to outline the edges of the flowers and sentiment before I blend with water using aqua brush. This way I try my best to cover the fussy cut edges so they don't look so obvious to the eyes.
 I should have taken a picture of the actual completed tag without the drip and splash of white paint. So just imagine that the background was in shades of brown and a bit of black here and there. I was not satisfied after reaching its completion and need to whiten it so it doesn't look dark. The twist of additional white watercolor paint pleased me very much. 
 The challenge ends at the end of this month with a photo inspiration but if you use products from the MHKDesigns store, you can link up ANYTHING!  
What do you think of this photo inspiration?
I wish to play along in these challenges:
1. Mix It Up : Ch#5 Anything Goes w/ optional twist In-Laid Die Cut
2. 613 Avenue : Ch#201 Atg w/ optional twist Distress It

That's a wrap. I look forward to see your participation in this month's challenge
at Mr. LinkyUntil then, wish you a happy September and
thank you for dropping by.

Hugs and smiles,
