Smell of Japan with Creative Inspirations Paints

Hello, dear painters! Irit is here again and this time with my own mixed technique of making a background grid with Wonder Tape, paints and microbeads and finally to make a Japanese style tag...
OK, kind of.. I don't have any Japanese stamps or products, but I am sure that they are known for this Cherry blossom festivals.
Here is our product list
Cardstock white tag- Ranger, but any tag will do
Pink cardstock- American Crafts, but any pink will do as we are going to paint after all
Wonder tape-1/8''
Creative Inspirations Paints: Ivory,Fuchsia, Blush
Microbeads- silver, any brand you have
And for embellishments: Sacura punch (EK), crystals and pearls, ribbons

Step one: This is a background step I am not going to teach this week ,so just mix all 3 paints from the list and add them randomly with a wide brush or your fingers. The great thing with our paints is this waterbased issue, so you can use your fingers and just wash them later. Let the background dry a bit. You can see the texured side you painted, but we will use the backside as we want this project to be smooth.

Step 2: Peel the orange tapes and sprinkle some silver microbeads all over the peeled glue. Add as much
as you want till the full coverage.
Your background is done and you can see the beaded background on the final project as I just forgot to take my photo on this stage of crafting.

Step 3: Punch a lot of Sacura flowers from the white or light pink cardstock. Add some pink paint over. Glue your flowers randomly over your tag, I adhered them on the places with bad microbeards coverage, mostly junctions, let them dry. Add some crystals and pearls as your flower centers. Add some clear glaze to keep those pearls and crystals on their place as this " self adhesives" are non adhesives after all.. LOL
Tie a few ribbons and twines inside your tag

Your tag is done!
Now try this technique with another colors and different embellishments. like blues and stars, browns and leaves etc.– works great!
See you next week with another fun tutorials using Creative Inspirations Paints.
