Midnight Masquerade Large Mixed Media Tag ~ Creative Embellishments

Hi There! Today, I'm sharing a fun, extra large, Mixed Media Tag! I've used one of the new Creative Embellishments chipboard Large Tags as the base for this project; these tags are fantastic and perfect for Mixed Media - I love them!
I started the front of the tag by stencilling on a pattern in two corners using Prima Art Basics White Modeling Paste. Next, I glued on some CE chipboard pieces, including some Door Knockers, pieces from the Filigree Corner Set 2, and a Flourish 4. Once I had all the chipboard in place, I painted everything with Prima Art Basics Heavy Black Gesso and then rubbed it with three colours of Prima Art Alchemy Antique Brilliance Waxes - Amethyst Magic, Mystic Turquoise and Red Amber. Then, I used Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Wax in White Gold to bring out some of the texture from the stencilling and to highlight the chipboard pieces. Once I was happy with the background, I used fussy-cuts from Graphic 45's Midnight Masquerade collection to create the scene on the tag (all paper edges were inked with Distress Ink in Black Soot).
On the reverse side, I started by trimming a sheet of paper from the Midnight Masquerade 12x12 Patterns and Solids to cover the tag. I created another scene using fussy cuts from the Midnight Masquerade Patterned Papers. I added another chipboard piece from the Filigree Corner Set 2 (treated the same as the front side of the tag) and some of the CE Wood Veneer Stars, which I rubbed with the White Gold wax. Here are some close-ups of the two sides of the Large Tag.

Finally, to finish off the tag, I tied a collection of ribbons, lace and seam binding to the top and added the three masks from the CE chipboard Masquerade Masks as embellishments dangling from some of the ribbon. I treated one side of the masks the same as the front of the tag and glued/trimmed patterned paper to the other side of the masks and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Black Soot.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! Happy Crafting!
