Mixed Media Halloween Tag


Meihsia Liu simply paper crafts mixed media tag Simon says stamp Monday challenge Tim Holtz
Hello, my lovely crafty friends! Can't believe it's October already! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we are creating with HALLOWEEN theme. This week we are also showcasing Memory Box Products. You don’t have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used.

I created a spooky tag with Memory Box Gear Assembly Die and embellished using Idea-Ology Apothecary Vials tiny container for this week's challenge.



To start this project, I cut a size 8 tag using the paper from Tim Holtz Paper Stash, then glued it on the Ranger Manila Tag. The tag was distressed with Distress Tool. To create the texture on the background of the tag, I applied the crackle paint on it.

After the assemble gears were die cut, I pasted it on the tag using Faber-Castell Gel Medium.

Some Tim Holtz spooky embellishments were colored with Distress Paints and added on the tag using Tombow Glue.  There are also sentiments were attached using Tim Holtz stickers.
