My 1st Mixed Media Tag

I have a permanent smile right now from all the fun I had creating this next project to share with all of you.
I have admired all of the beautiful Mixed Media projects I have seen over the course of the last year of blogging and was excited to try a bit of it for myself.  
 First:  I sprayed my Perfect Pearl Mist directly onto the Kraft tag and dried it with my heating tool.
 Then I used my homemade mixture of Vermillion glimmer mist.
 For the next step, I randomly stamped some flowers onto the tag using Vintage Photo ink.  After that, I randomly stamped the sentiment onto the tag using the same ink.  I grabbed a few paper scraps from  my stash and inked up the little girl with her umbrella onto cream texture cs, diagonal stripe dp, and a yellow flower pattern dp.  I cut all the pieces out to paper piece together onto the cream cs.
 I stamped the sentiment onto cream cs using Vintage Photo, then added the embossing powder and heat set it.  I fussy cut around the sentiment and then spritzed it with some homemade green glimmer mist.  I prepped my paints and added a few roses and lace directly to the tag.
I placed foam squares behind the girl for added dimension. 
 I trimmed the umbrella with glossy accents, highlighted her boots with a black gel pen, handpainted the grass, used orange watercolors to paint the flower on the sentiment tag, and added all the embellishments to finish it off.

I was inspired by and will enter the following challenges . . . .
