Fun Techniques on Tags!

Happy Friday!
Michelle is here today sharing a extra post! 
I created two tags today each with a quick and fun technique!
The first tag after I added some distress ink to the background I used
a dropper with some water and Tickled Pink CI Paint.
I love the how the paint drips, adds some fun splashes of color & shimmer!
The heart I added some amazing CI Replendence glitter
 in the color Regal Red!  

For the 2nd tag I first covered the background
 with some glossy gel medium.
Once you add the paint you have some areas that resist the paints thats where you see the white showing through under the paint!
After the gel dries I used Tutu Pink and Blush over the top of the gel.
I then used a stencil and added some modeling paste.
For the flower I used Amethyst, the stem Emerald, and the leaf Sage CI Paints. The butterfly I used CI paint in Rose Quartz.
A close up picture of the sparkle are below.
These techniques are not new but I wanted to share how well the CI paints work with the gel medium and the modeling paste!
The Creative Inspirations paints are so versatile and easy to use that is why I love creating with them!
Here is the link to the store to view some more amazing CI paint colors!!
