I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Sizzix 3D Foundry Texture Fades Embossing Folder for the texture on the background and decorated it with the images using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Travel Ways.

To start this project, I cut a 3" x 6.25" tag with a piece of heavy white card stock, and embossed it with Sizzix 3D Foundry Texture Fades Embossing Folder and Big Shot.

The background of the tag was colored with Distress Ink pad and a blending tool for the metal-like texture. I distressed the edges of the tag using black Distress Paint. 

On a piece of white card stock, I stamped different vehicle images using the black ink pad, and heat embossed them using the clear embossing powder and a heat tool. The images were colored using Copic markers, cut and pasted on the tag using adhesive foam tabs for dimensions.

Hello, my lovely blog friends, I am so happy you are here. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create "Anything but a Card". Yes, just make anything and join us! I was inspired to create a trio of mixed media canvases using Tim Holtz  Cling Rubber Mini Blueprints and Copic Markers to colore the images.

To start this project, I first applied some modeling paste around these three 3" X 3"mini canvases and created some texture around the edges. Then I colored these canvases with various Ranger Dylusions Paints. Some tiny text print was stamped on the background using the black ink pad.

On a piece of heavy white card stock, I stamped these mini blueprint images using VersaFine black ink pad and then embossed these images with clear embossing powder and a heat tool. These images were colored with Copic Markers then torn and pasted on the mini canvases using Tombow Mono Glue.

I randomly applied some acrylic paints on the canvases with a brush and outlined the canvases with Faber Castell Big Brush Pen with different colors on the edges of the canvases. The sentiments were added with my favorite Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers. 

This is so much fun to create something not a card and I hope you got inspired by my project. Join us and happy crafting!
