Mixed Media Tag Recycle Opportunity

Hello, my lovely friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all had a great weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "Recycle Something". We would like you to recycle something! Maybe use some ribbon or twine from a gift you received or decorate a carton or jar, there is so much ‘rubbish’ that we can alter into something beautiful and help to save the planet at the same time!

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using the recycled bubble wrap, book page, wire and cardboard, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Opportunities and Idea-Ology Quotation Metallic Stickers. To start this project, I first pasted a piece of torn cardboard and bubble wrap on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

The tag and embellishments were colored with various shades of Distress Paints. I also added a piece of torn magazine paper and made a wired heart to attach on the tag.

The sentiment was stamped and cut to paste on the tag. I also stenciled some sentiments with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Distress Paint, and added some Idea-Ology Quotations Metallic Stickers. To finish off the tag, I outlined the tag with a brush pen and Ground Expresso Distress Paint.
