Mixed Media Tag Adventure Begins

newchallenge sssm 

Hello, my crafty friends, it's time for a new challenge! Whether you use a die cut with coordinating stamp, use a paper punch on a background stamp, or stamp a pre-made diecut shape or alphabet sticker this week we want to see your projects that feature a punch or die cut with a stamp!

I created a tag with my favorite die and background text stamp.

I was inspired by our summer trip, and created a mixed media tag embellished using Tim Holtz Mini Old Jalopy Die cut with Impression Obsession Beauty Text stamped on it.

To start this project, I created the texture applying modeling paste over Tim Holtz layering stencil on the tag. The background was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paints and distressed it using a ColorBox Art Dauber

Some Tim Holtz metal embellishments and Prima Flowers resin were attached on the tag using Tombow glue. I also added some sentiments with Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers.

The die cut car was colored with Distress Paint and distressed with ColorBox pigment ink. After stamping with text stamp and Colorbox pigment ink, I embossed the die cut car with Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder and a heat tool.

The sentiment was stamped on Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon with Clearsnap Crafter's Fabric ink. And I colored the clip with Tim Holtz metallic Distress Paint and embossed it with Clearsnap embossing powder. This completed my mixed media tag for this challenge. Can't wait for our next trip!
