Mixed Media Tutorial "Learn From Yesterday" Tag with Sin City Stamps

It seems like forever since I used some of my "own" stamps from Sin City Stamps
that is about to change.
I am hoping to share with you at least once a week some inspiration from using my stamps or sharing what is new over at Sin City Stamps.
for today I created a mixed media Tutorial "Learn From Yesterday" Tag!!!

Die cut tag using an old vanilla folder...
Apply distress ink to the top with a blending tool.
Stamp "Memories" Background to tag with black ink.
Spatter with paint; dry.
Distress edges of tag with distress tool.

Die cut prepared tag using Mixed Media Die.
Adhere to top of green card stock; distress and ink edges.

Lay stencil on prepared tag; apply paste with palette knife.

Stamp "Memories" Flower stamp on water color paper; color with markers.

Stamp around prepared "Memories" Flower with black ink.
Die cut prepared flower the size of an ATC.
(HINT: I used a Sizzix Die)
Distress and ink edges; adhere to front of tag with tiny attacher.
Fussy cut extra flowers; add to top of flowers at center.
Tip petals up and add enamel dots.

 Do a wash of distress marker on to watercolor paper; dry.
Stamp "Memories" Flowers and Borders to top with distress marker.
Stamp "Memories" Every Single Day Sentiment to top with black ink.

Distress and ink edges.
Add to top of prepared tag with pop dots.

Tie ribbon to top of prepared tag.
