Mixed Media Sunflower Tag

 Water coloring with Gelatos for this tags background.
 I prepped tag with a matte medium first and added a small strip of news print for interest. I colored over some of the tag with cream acrylic paint
Then I used metallic Gelatos and added water right over the top with a water brush creating a watercolor effect.
Stamping with SSS  jet black archival ink and Hero Arts sentiments. Randomly stamping with T.H. music notes, and tiny stars from my stash.
 Sunflower from Stamplorations Stamps was colored with markers and diluted with a water brush, cut out and attached to tag with tacky glue.
Seam binding was colored with Gelatos and misted over with water to easily cover, to create the tags two toned bow.
