Hello, my talented crafty friends, let's play the new challenge! Our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is "WARM WINTER WISHES". I was inspired to create a mixed media wall decor for Christmas using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Christmas Quote Chips and Quote Tokens to decorate the canvas.

To start this project, I pasted a piece of vintage Christmas image from Idea-Ology Ephemera on this 4" X 6" canvas and applied some Distress Paints around the edges of the canvas for the distressed effect.

The Prima Round Frame and the Trophy Antler were colored with Distress Paints and pasted on the canvas using the heavy gel. I decorated the frame with some paper flowers and decorated the rein deer with the bell necklace.

Some sentiments were added with Christmas Quote Tokens and Chips on the canvas. I added the snow around the canvas and randomly the embellishments using Prima Flowers Snowflake Paste and a palette knife. To finish off this project, I splattered some white Distress Paint and a paint brush.

I was inspired to create a mixed media "Be Unique" tag using Brutus Monroe Clear Stamps Rockstar Pets and added sentiments with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tiny Text Remnant Rubs. The project was started with applying some modeling paste on the background for the texture of this size 8 chipboard tag with a palette knife. I then colored the tag using various shade of Distress Paints and Dylusion Paints over a set of mini stencils for some patterns.

On a black tag, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with the white embossing powder. The cat image was stamped with a black ink pad and heat embossed with the clear embossing powder. I colored the cat image with watercolors and cut it. The sentiment and cat image were adhered on the tag using foam tapes.

I added some more sentiments with Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk stickers and Tiny Text Remnant Rubs. The edges of the tag were outlined and distressed with brown and black acrylic paints and a brush pen. 

I really enjoy creating this "Be Unique" tag with this fun and vibrant color scheme, and this super cute cat image from Brutus Monroe. I hope this project inspired you to create something and join us this week!
