Mixed Media Tag Gentleman


newchallenge sssm

It’s time to think of the men in our lives and create something for them, maybe a masculine canvas to hang in their den, or a notebook for their desk, whatever you create we will be looking forward to seeing it!

Meihsia was inspired to create a masculine tag.

I was inspired to create a masculine tag with a metallic color scheme this week. Although I always love shabby chic style, I really want to try to create with various elements.

After embossing the background of the tag with Tim Holtz Steampunk Embossing Folder, I colored it with Distress ink pad and added a glossy layer with Faber-Castell Glaze. The image was cut out from the Tim Holtz paper stash Destination stack. I stamped the musical instrument and embossed it with Colorbox clear embossing powder.

Some Metal Word Band and resin Gears embellishments were attached using Tombow Mono Glue for more interest.

Mixed Media Index Card

Hello, everyone, I recently challenge myself to create 100 mixed media index cards and I share a tutorial of this index card collage project featuring ColorBox Pigment Inks and Izink Inks with some old book pages at Clearsnap today.

I created this project on coloring the background of these 3" X 5" index cards as the base with Izink inks in various colors, and adhered ripped old book page, magazine or patterned paper.  Here are four index cards I created.

Happy crafting!

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.
