Mixed Media Tag The Journey

newchallenge sssm

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want you to share a project that features one of your favorite techniques. I love to create background textures with dry embossing.
Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Journey

One of my favorite techniques to create textures on mixed media projects is dry embossing. On this tag, I first colored the background with watercolors distressed the edges with Distress Inks and Art Daubers.

I pasted a piece of torn card stock that was dry embossed with Tim Holtz embossing folder and colored with Distress Inks.

Some Tim Holtz metal embellishments  and Prima Flowers resin were added to finish off this tag.
