Melissa's Texture Tip: Dream As If You'll Live Forever--Mixed Media Tag featuring Lindy's

Good morning everyone! Today I am excited to share with you a quick and easy tag that I created featuring Lindy's spray inks and product from our March kit.

Texture Tip: To begin this project, I ran the foil paper through my Cuttlebug with an embossing plate to create a really nice background texture. The embossing plate combined with the metal look of the tape really create a nice texture without adding a lot of weight to the piece. When that was done, I added several different alcohol inks to create a stained glass effect.

For the next step, I used an applicator to spread some black Distress ink over the entire piece to tone it down a bit.

Then, I used the gold Lindy's spray from our kit and sprayed the entire tag with it. I crumpled the tag to create some more texture, and covered a chipboard angel with the black ink from the kit. I also added a gear covered in ink from the kit, and one of the arrow brads.

I attached the embossed foil piece and added some vintage resin covered paper from my stash, as well as a bit of pink rosette ribbon to the tag. A piece of ribbon was also dyed with ink to match the tag.

And here is the finished tag:


  1. Simply beautiful tag. Love the embossing and color combination, too.

  2. Beautiful color combination. I really liked the embossing folder you used. The paisley pattern really shows the color well with all the nooks and crannies of the pattern. Really pretty.

    1. Thank you! I found the folder deep in my stash--love those kinds of surprises! :)

  3. love this! such beautiful colors here!
