You Are My Happily Ever After

It's that time again - time for another Whimsical Wednesday challenge! We have a fun one for you this week - mixed media!

I'm not a regular mixed media gal, but I do like to try some mixed media techniques here and there just to experiment. For this challenge I decided to make a tag using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and I used a technique very similar to this one. 

The inks I used were: Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick. Such a pretty color combo! I was in the mood for purple and pink - no idea why!

After distressing the tag and letting it dry overnight, I stamped the sentiment and the heart from the "With Love" stamp set from Whimsical Designs. I also added some lace trim and a flower that I distressed as well to match the tag.

The pearls are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies and I added an SRM Sticker to the bottom and then embellished it with Flamingo Liquid Pearls. I love how it all came together!

Our sponsor for the mixed media challenge is Tabitha's Designs. One lucky winner will receive 2 digi paper packs of their choice!

Hope to see you linking up! Don't forget to stop by the blog for more DT inspiration. :)
