I was inspired to make a mixed media tag using IndigoBlu Dinkie Ink Splat Butterfly Cling Stamp on the background, and decorated it with the leaves using Tim Holtz Sizzix Fall Foliage Thinlits Die.

To start this project, I colored the background of the tag with Tim Holtz Distress Paints. The background butterfly image was stamped using IndigoBlu Butterfly Cling Stamp and black ink, then heat embossed with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.

I stenciled some splatter patterns on the tag using Tim Holtz crackle paint and a palette knife over the mini stencil. The autumn leaves were die cut, colored and covered with the crackle paint.

I added more embellishments with the dimensional butterflies and the mini pumpkin. The stamped sentiment and Big Chat Stickers were attached as the final touch. 

I really hope this tag inspired you to create with us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Can't wait to see what you create! Happy crafting!
