Hey, my beautiful crafty friends, let's create for this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Our theme for this week is "MONOCHROME" - just pick a color and stick to it!
I created a mixed media tag to celebrate Halloween using Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint on the background and decorated the tag with Idea-Ology Halloween Ephemera Pack.

To create the project this week, I used #8 black tag as the base, applied Ranger crackle paint first, then distressed the edges of the tag using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser Tool.

For the white image and text on the background, I used Tim Holtz Halloween rubs on. You may also used many Tim Holtz Halloween related stamps and white ink pad to stamp on the background. Or use Tim Holtz Halloween stamps and any color of stamp, then heat emboss with white embossing powder. They will create the same beautiful white image and text contrast the dark background.

The Halloween Ephemera image was covered with clear crackle paint. The clip and alpha parts were colored with distress paints then the crackle paint. I pasted these embellishments on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Tombow Adhesive Tabs.

Hi, my lovely crafty friends, I hope you all had enjoyed your weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme for you is "It's a Dog's Life". I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas embellished with the die cut using Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media 4 Thinlits Die and two cute dogs using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Crazy Dogs.

To start this project, I first applying a layer of crackle paint on this 4" X 6" canvas. After the paint was dry, I applied various shades of Distress Paints on the canvas. 

For the texture on the background, I die cut the embellishments using Tim Hotlz Mixed Media Thinlits Die and cardstock, then glued them on the canvas. I distressed the edges of the canvas and the dimensional part of the texture using the blending tool and ink pads. 

On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the dog images and the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp black ink pad. The images were colored using  Daniel Smith watercolor and a pen brush. After the dog, tennis ball and bone image were colored and cut out, I pasted them on the canvas using Tombow Adhesive Tabs for the dimensional effect. 

Some sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Big Chat Stickers and Alpha Part as the final touch.
