Mixed Media Tag With Sympathy

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Sympathy Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz
Hello, my dear blog friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "SPLASH IT ON". You may incorporate water into your project. It also can be an image of water, or water colouring, or splashing water onto your creation. I am looking forward to seeing what you make!

I created a mixed media tag using Daniel Smith Watercolors on the background and adding sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Greeting Wafer Die.

On the background of this size 8 tag, I first applied Daniel Smith watercolors with red and yellow colors over Tim Holtz layering stencil using a water brush. After it was dry, I applied some green colors over the stencil on the tag. The third layer was the splash of yellow watercolor on the tag. 

I stamp the some text print on the background using Tim Holtz stamp and Simon Says Ink Pad.

To create some texture, I applied the modeling paste over Tim Holtz mini stencil using a palette knife.      Some rub on leave images were added after the modeling paste was dry. The sentiment was die cut with Simon Says Greeting Wafer Die, and pasted using the Tombow Mono Glue. I also added more sentiment with Tim Holtz stickers.

The metal hears were colored with Distress Paints. I distressed the edges of the tag using Tim Holtz Distress Paint, too. I really enjoyed playing with watercolors and love the beautiful vibrant effect that    Daniel Smith watercolors blended. 

I hope you like this tag and got inspired to create your project with some splash on. Join us and share your creation on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week!

Thank you for the spotlight nomination. I haven't commented much lately but I have noticed the many brilliant tags you've made. This one is equally beautiful. You have a knack for blending sharp with soft and I find it so appealing.

The delicate black floral silhouettes work so beautifully with the uplifting colours and white space - this is lovely as a sympathy card.
