Pretty gift tags

Mother’s Day is this weekend so I made up a quick batch of gift tags that will hopefully inspire you to make your own!

I then drybrushed a bit of white acrylic paint over the texture. The final color was to splash pink paint onto the page and then spray with water to make the paint bleed a bit.

Just a note: I did paint the back of the cardstock with some of the colors I used on the front. It is not a necessary step but I had made a mess of the back with paint splatters, so I added more paint to even it out!

These gift tags would be great if you are giving out goodies bags at an event or just pick one for this year’s Mother’s Day treat!

Thanks for joining me today…
