Mixed Media Tag Love is in the Air

Hi, my talented friends! Welcome back for the new challenge! I hope you all had a great weekend! Valentines day is coming and our theme this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "LOVE IS IN THE AIR". Let's create and show our feelings of affection and friendship with someone we love.
It is Wendy’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight. Please check her blog for the great inspiration if you haven't done so. 

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Valentine Silhouettes and colored it with Ranger Distress Crayon Set 1

To start this project, I stenciled the modeling paste over the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil with a palette knife to create the texture on this size 8 tag. Then I colored the tag with various shades of Distress Paints.

On a piece of heavy white card stock, I stamped some Valentines images with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Valentines and Simon Says Stamp Ink Pads. I stamped some text print and heat embossed it with Simon Says Embossing Powder on these stamped images. These images were then added more colors with Daniel Smith watercolors, cut and outlined with red Faber Castell Pen.

After I adhered the embellishments and Prima Flowers on the tag, I attached some sentiment stickers and Tiny Text Remnant Rubs. As the final touch, I splashed some Gesso randomly on the tag. 
I really enjoyed creating this Valentines tag and hope you got inspired by my project. I am looking forward to seeing what you make for our challenge this week! Happy crafting!
