Mixed Media Card Vacation Mexico

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Card Vacation Mexico Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1
Hello, my dear crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge of Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, our challenge theme is "Let's Take a Vacation!" I am so excited about our family goes to Mexico city and Cancun this summer since it's been 15 years since last time we went there.
I was inspired to created a mixed media card using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Explore Dream Discover and decorated with Prima Marketing Steampunk Gears.

This is a 4.25" X 5.5" card using Neenah card stock as the card base. On a piece of watercolor paper, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Sprays over the Layering Stencil. The colored watercolor paper was cut and sewn on the card base. I randomly stamped some text print and images on the background.

The sentiment was stamped on the colored die cut circle and pasted on the card. I added the metal gear embellishments that were colored with Distress Paints on the card.

The "Mexico" and "Cancun" were Tim Holtz Alpha Parts colored with Distress Paints. I glued theme on the card using Tombow Glue. 

I hope you like my creation and got inspired to create with us this week. Join us and have fun!
