Mixed Media Tag Road Trip & Travel

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Road Trip Travel Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1
Hey, my beautiful crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all had a great time last week and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather. Our children had Spring break last week and we had a short road trip from Dallas to Shreveport LA for visiting some museums. For our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Chalellenge, our theme is "ROAD TRIP".

This week, we are saying goodbye to our lovely and talented teammate Cathie. I've always loved the wonderful creations and great inspiration from Cathie, and I wish her all the best for her future.

Our guest designer is Bonnie. Be sure to check her blog for the beautiful project she created for our challenge this week.

I was inspired by our recent road trip and created a mixed media tag using Sizzix Mini Old Jalopy & Arrow Dies and decorated with Idea-Ology Foundry Adornment.

I started this project by pasting the Tim Holtz Motif paper on the chipboard and die cut it with Big Shot and Sizzix Tag Die. I distressed the edges of the tag using Distress Ink Pads and Art Daubers. I distressed the edges again using black Distress Paint.

The image of man with a car was cut from Tim Holtz paper stash and I distressed it with a distress tool and colored the edges with Tim Holtz Oxide ink pad. The antique car and the arrow were die cut, colored with Distress Paints and covered with Ranger Clear Crackle Paint.

The metal Adornments were colored with Distress Paints, and the sentiment stickers were colored with Koi watercolors. I layered these embellishments and pasted them on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive Tabs. Some rub on sentiments, sequins and paint drops were added on the tag as the final touch.
