Spring tags - Tutorial

Hello everyone,

have you seen all the new motif sheets by Dress my craft?its so awesome and can be used along with the paper collections or individually.The beautiful butterflies and flowers from the motif sheets inspired me to make a set of spring tags.
So lets see the procedure:
The best part about mixed media is that you can start where ever you want and build the layers,there is no such rules that we must start here and finish it at particular step.So i started of with the stamping as first step,i stamped various texture stamps randomly using archival ink.
 Next i dabbed some distress oxide on the craft mat,sprayed some water and placed my tag over it.
 I added the next color in the same way after the first color dried.
 Now to add more texture  i used the floral stencil and modelling paste
 Once the modelling paste dried its time to create the layer.I used some gauze cloth,jute,laces and art stones.
Here is my finished tags,i used some die cuts,prima flower,fussy cut elements from motif sheets to decorate it.Finally i applied gel medium and sprinkled some pearl micro beads and micro mini beads which  gives beautiful finish and texture.
 To add more interest i  splattered some white paint and added stitched details with marker pen around the tag.

 here is some close ups:
