Mixed Media Tag Halloween

Meihsia Lilu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Halloween Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz

Hello, my sweet crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge this week. I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful and cool fall weather during the weekend. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create with "HEAVY METAL" this week. 

I was inspired to create a Halloween mixed media tag using Idea-Ology Halloween Ephemera Pack, and colored with Distress Paints and Distress Ink Stain for the metallic effect.

On this size 8 tag, I first applied a layer of Gesso and then Crackle Paint on the background. The wood gears and the metal embellishments were attached on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

I applied Distress Paint and Distress Ink with Gold color scheme on the tag and those embellishments to create the metallic effect. The embellishments were distressed using Distress Paint Walnut Stain and Black.

The sentiments were added with Idea-Ology Halloween Rub On and Tim Holtz ChitChat Stickers. I distressed the tag using a black Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen and randomly dropped some Black Distress Ink on the tag for the final touch. 

I hope this tag inspired you to create and join us this week! Happy crafting!
