Mixed Media Grunge Tag Keep Room for Heart

Meihsia Liu Simpl Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Room for Heart Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 100600
Hello, my lovely crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all had fun with last week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, our theme is "GRUNGE IT UP" - simply create a distressed or grungy look on your project. Be sure to check our guest designer Stacy's beautiful creation for this week's challenge.

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz black ink pad to distress the edges of the tag and decorated with Sizzix Heart and Gear die cut embellishments.

On this size 8 tag, I first applied the modeling paste using a palette knife to create the texture. Then I colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and distressed the edges with black ink pad. The Gold embossing powder was sprayed and heated on the tag. And I stamped some random text with black ink pad and Tim Holtz rubber stamp.

I die cut the heart, gear and arrow embellishments using Tim Holtz die and Big Shot, colored them using Distress Paints and distress them with Distress Ink Pad. These embellishments were also heat embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat tool.

I layered these embellishments and attached them on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive Tabs. Some Idea-Ology Remnant Rubs were randomly and Small Talk Stickers were added on the tag. Some Gesso and water mixture was splatted on the tag as the final touch. 

I really enjoyed creating the grungy effect on this project and hope it inspired you to create with us. Looking forward to seeing what you make!
