Mixed Media Tag Heart

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Heart Love 1
Hello, my crafty friends, I hope you all had a great weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "YOUNG AT HEART". You can use hearts on your project or interpret this theme as being young and adventurous or daring. 

It is also the first Monday of the February so we showcase our  Simon Says Stamp Exclusive ProductsYou can check out the latest ‘Hey Love’ release here, its full of ‘love-ly’ stamps, dies, stencils and more. Our Guest Designer is Nicola  aka Paper Profusion this month. She is an amazing artist. Make sure to check out her fabulous artworks. 

For the project this week, I was inspired to create a mixed media tag with die cut hearts using Simon Says Stamp Sketched Hearts Wafer Die, and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Valentine for the texture on the background.

I first applied some modeling paste on the tag with palette knife to make the texture and colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. Some Tim Holtz text print tapes were pasted, then I stenciled the Valentine sentiments using Tim Holtz Layering stencil and the modeling paste that was mixed with red Distress Paint.

On a red cardstock, I die cut the hearts using Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Sketched Heart and Big Shot machine. The hearts were attached on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and foam tape.

I attached the flower and metal embellishments on the tag. The hello sentiment were die cut using Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Greeting Wafer die. The edges of the tag were distressed using the Art Dauber and Simon Says Stamp black ink pad. Some Gesso and water mixture was splattered on the tag as the final touch.
