For this week's challenge, I was inspired to make a mixed media card with a little sparkle of Ranger Snowflakes Tinsel Embossing Powder and Simon Says Stamp Pixie Dust Sequins. To start this project, I trimmed the card base with the heavy white stock and folded into size 4.25" X 5.5". The Deco Sheet was cut slightly smaller than the card base and pasted on the card base using Scor-Tape.

On another piece of white card stock, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain, then stamped some patterns using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamps and Distress Ink Pads. The last layer of stamping was done with the black ink pad and a text stamp. The colored and stamped card stock was cut and pasted on the card base as the background. The sentiment was stamped using Tim Holtz rubber stamp and Distress black ink pad on a piece of sprayed paper, torn and pasted on the background of the card using foam tabs.

The heart embellishment was die cut and covered with glitter using Tombow glue. I also applied the glue around the edges of Prima Flowers and sprinkled some glitter to make them more interesting. Some sequins were added randomly to finish off this project. 

I hope you like my mixed media card and got inspired to create your own shiny and sparkling project.  Have fun!

Hello, my beautiful blog friends, I hope you all enjoy your summer so far. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our challenge theme is "SUMMER FUN". I was inspired to make a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Carved Instruments and added the sentiment with Idea-Ology Snarky Small Talk Stickers.

On this size 8 tag I applied Modeling Paste over stencils using a palette knife to create the texture. The background was colored using various shades of Distress Paints and Distress Ink Pads. On a piece of white card stock, I stamped and heat embossed the musical instrument images using the black ink pad and Ranger embossing power. The images were colored using Copic markers.

The sentiments were added with Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers. I randomly stamped some texture prints on the background of the tag. The edges of the tag were distressed and outlined using Faber Castell Pens.
