Mixed Media Thank You Tag

Hi, everyone, oh.... I can't believe that the school ends in  two weeks. This week, we are giving thank you cards and gifts to kids' favorite teachers, coaches, and office staff. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge,  we'd like to see your gift ideas for teacher appreciation. From tags for store bought things to homemade thank you gifts, cards, or anything else you dream up - please share what you come up with.

I was inspired to create a thank you tag this week.

My kids and I usually make simple and cute thank you cards together for teachers and friends. This week, I wanted to try something different with some mixed media elements.

To start this project, I applied Gesso on this #8 tag, then stenciled the background with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Modeling Paste.Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Thank you Tag Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp 2

The edges of the tag were distressed and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I also randomly applied embossing ink on the background and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

 Tim Holtz embellishments and Alpha Parts were attached with Tombow Glue. As the final touch, randomly apply some  Distress Paints on the embellishments.

I hope you are inspired, and create something beautiful and unique for your child's teacher or anyone you are appreciate.

  10. This is incredible! As always, you have mastered the art of making rusty junky things look totally modern and sophisticated. I especially love the color palette here and how you hung the "You" letters from the metal embellishment.
