Mixed Media Tag Ombre

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my dear crafty friends, it's time for the new challenge from Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, we have an "Ombre" theme - from the popular Hero Arts ink pads to the new Distress DIY ink pads, ombre is one trend that is going strong! You can be inspired to use an ink pad, make your own blend of colors, or even go for something monochromatic if you like.

I was inspired to created a tag with a fall color palette.

Fall is officially here. This week, I decided to use the fall color palette to create this tag. After adding the texture on the background with Prima Flowers Texture Paste, I colored the tag with Sakura Koi Watercolors and an Aquash Brush.

The butterfly was cut out from Tim Holtz Paper Stash patterned paper. The metal embellishments were colored with Distress Paints and adhered on the tag with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I was inspired to use two of my favorite stamps in Tim Holtz STAMPtember Exclusive Cling Stamps for my art journal pages. I just can't stop playing with these beautiful stamps after I created with two of the stamps in my previous projects.

On my first journal page, I colored the background with Distress Paints, and stamped the image using the coffee stamp from the set and Memento Black Ink. I added a layer of stamped coffee image to create the dimension.

The flag image was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day and embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

I decorated the page with some Tim Holtz metal embellishments and Rubs. 

For the second journal page, I sprayed the background with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain over the Layering Stencil and applied Distress Paints on the background.

I distressed the edges of the page with Distress Paints. I also added some Remnant Rubs and Tim Holtz metal embellishments to decorate the page.

I really love the beautiful sea shell image and the great details on this Exclusive Stamp Set. The size and the sentiment are just perfect for my 4" X 6" mini art journal.

The metal embellishment on the bottom of the page was colored with Distress Paint. I attached all the embellishments with Tombow Mono Glue, and used Foam Squares to make the dimension of the sea shell image.
