Mixed Media Tag Thanks

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my dear crafty friends, welcome back for the new theme for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thanksgiving will soon be here, so this challenge is dedicated to being thankful for all of our families and our friends. We all need a good supply of Thank You/Thanksgiving cards but you might also like to make some Thanksgiving decorations and table settings, we will be looking forward to seeing your creations!

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag for the holiday gift.

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and appreciate what we have. I created this tag for the gift to a friend.

After embossing the background of tag with Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder and big shot, I colored it using Distress Ink Pads and Art Daubers.

The sentiment was stamped with Altenew Thanks Clear Stamp and Colorbox ink pad, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The leaves were colored with Izink inks and die cut using Tim Holtz Fall Foliage Thinlits die.

I adhered all the leaves and all the embellishments with Tombow Mono Glue and Tombow Adhesive Tabs.
