Watercolor Easter Tags

Hello there!  Audrey here!  Today I have a fun set of watercolor Easter tags to share with you!  Can you believe it's almost Easter?  Spring is on the way!

Watercolor Easter Tags


I've really been enjoying watercoloring lately.  I use several different mediums to watercolor, but these tags were painted with a cheapie watercolor palette from Michaels.  I started by diecutting several  Tag, You're It diecuts from watercolor paper, and then I painted them.  While they were drying, I stamped,  Copic colored, and cut out several images from the new Eggstra Special Easter stamp set.  I had a few colored already, but needed more for this project.  These images are so fun to color!  I used the Grassy Border die to add some grass to the bottom of each tag and then popped the images up using foam tape.  I personalized each tag using Milos ABCs.   I curled the edges of the grass slightly with my fingers, and added a hole reinforcer using coordinating card stock.  Finally, I thread each tag with different colors of Lawn Trimmings twine.  I can't wait to add these tags to Easter goodies for some of my favorite little people!

Here are a few close-ups:
