Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Red White Blue Cat Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz DarkRoom Door 2

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Darkroom Door Cling Stamp Sitting Cat and added sentiments with Idea-Ology Snarky Small Talk Stickers. I really loved this cat stamp and wanted to make a blue cat sitting in front of the red brick wall. The funny sentiment in the Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers are exactly I think my cat Tiger would think almost everyday.

To start this project, I cut a 3" X 6" tag with heavy watercolor paper. The tag was stenciled using Tim Holtz mini stencil set 3 and the modeling paste with a palette knife for the brick background. I distressed the brick background and the edges of the tag with Distress Ink pad and a blending tool, then outlined the edges using a black brush pen.

The cat image was stamped with Darkroom Door Stamp and heat embossed using the embossing powder. I colored it using Copic markers with grey and blue colors.

The cat image was layered with distressed corrugated paper and pasted on the tag using foam tabs. The metal Vignette Accent was colored with Distress Paint and pasted on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue. Some sentiments were added with Tim Holtz rubs on and Small Talk Stickers. 

I hope you like my mixed media tag this week and got inspired to create a red, white and blue project.  Join us, have fun and enjoy your Independence holiday!

Great tag, Meihsia! Using a cat with a snarky sticker is a perfect match. I like the alley cat vibe with the bricks and cardboard. The metal embellishments look great too!

Macarena said...

Oh my! I really love this cat and wondering why don't I still have it? I love the background you made him with the red wall and the floral embellishment. Great tag! Hugs, Marzena.
