Mixed Media Tag Journey Destination

newchallenge sssm

Hello, lovely friends, welcome back for the new challenge of the week. I hope you all enjoyed the Earth Day last week. I went to the Earth Day Fair at Dallas and really had fun with my family and friends. For the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp challenge, let's play with the metal. Please simply include a metallic element somewhere on your project! We'd love to see some metal in your creation. 

I am too excited about our coming summer trip and start planning it already.

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Journey 1

I was inspired to create this mixed media tag with some metal elements and the travel theme. The background of this tag was embossed with
Tim Holtz Texture Fades Embossing Folder and colored with Distress ink pads.

Some metal embellishments and Tim Holtz sentiment stickers were adhered on the tag using Tombow  Mono Liquid Glue.

I distressed these embellishments with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain and ColorBox Metallic Pigment ink pad.

After covering the tag with Faber-Castell Glitter Gel, I attached the metal embellishments as the final touch. I really love the beautiful metallic and glittered look on this tag, and can't wait to see what metallic element you will include in your project!
