Spread Kindness

Hi Stamping Friends,

Time flies. It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The November Challenge Theme is Tag. Yay, this is basically like Anything Goes, isn’t it?

For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Be sure to join for a chance to win $20.

It’s approaching the most colorful season of the year. I’m challenging myself to make an autumn tag in a pastel way. The following is how I made my tag.

Tag Details

1. Apply several Distress Paints on stencil, flip the stencil and use the stencil like a stamp, i.e. press the colored stencil on tag. Let dry.

2. Apply gesso on tag to create pastel effect. Let dry.
3. Apply several Distress Inks over stencil on tag.

4.Randomly apply Embossing Paste over stencil on tag to create texture. Let dry.

5. Die cut leaves (by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous). Stamp music notes (by Hero Arts). Edge leaves by Distress Inks.

6. Heat emboss text (Simon Says Stamp) in white on black card scrap. Assemble the tag as shown on top.

Hope this tag is eye-pleasing to you. Let’s spread kindness by making and sharing tags/cards with one another. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.
