Mixed Media Tag Masculine Hey Train Wreck

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Masculine Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz

Hello, my lovely friends! Time flies and it's almost summer again. This week our family had a great time at our son's 8th grade recognition and cousin's graduation party. I hope you all had a great weekend, too. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "Masculine". I am looking forward to seeing your creation!

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Sizzix Die Gadget Gears and decorated with stamped image using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Travel Ways. On the background of this size 8 tag, I first applied Dylusion Paint then a layer of the crackle paint. The edges of the tag were distressed with a black brush pen.

I die cut some gears using Sizzix Die Gadget Gears and Big Shot with a piece of chipboard. The gears were colored with Dylusion Paint and covered with the crackle paint, then adhered on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

The text print was stamped on a piece of white paper with Tim Holtz cling stamp and Simon Says Stamp black ink pad. The stamped paper was distressed on the edges using a blending tool and Distress Ink Pad. I layered it with a piece of torn corrugated paper on the tag.

The last step to finish off the tag was adding the sentiment sticker. I really enjoy creating all these masculine elements on this project with the rusty effect and color scheme. I hope you like my creation and got inspired to make yours and share it with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  Happy crafting!

I had to laugh at the words you added to your tag, Meihsia, love the humor! Wonderful tag with all the rusty gears and how you wired the paper on, so cool! hugs, Maura

Totally stunning! I really love what you did with the background. The cogs and gears make it so thick and solid. Love the colors and crackles! The central panel with thorn papers is so cool, too! Hugs, Marzena.

This is so cool Meihsia! I love the sentiment and how you used the same ticket stamp that I used, but in a totally different way.

Such an awesome tag! I love the texture and those pops of blue!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

GORGEOUS! I'm pretty sure there isn't a style or theme that you CAN'T do! This is fabulous and I especially like how you wrapped string/wire around the ticket to add even more texture and dimension. There are so many great ideas at work here!
