Default May Week 4 MIXED MEDIA Challenge due 5/28/17

Am posting a bit early, would like to sleep in tomorrow morning !

Building on our Tags with Mixed Media backgrounds, this month I thought we would add to them Faux Metallic embellishments made with embossing powders and die cuts.

Here is a sampling of just regular weight white cardstock diecuts, embossed with 3 layers of metallic embossing powders. They become really sturdy with 3 layers, even intricate dies. Except the ornate fence which I used a textured white cardstock and only one layer of black embossing powder and liked the resulting vintage wrought-iron look, so left it at one layer only. The Believe tag was cracked after cooled to give vintage look.
You tube video Jennifer MacGuire shows how to emboss intricate diecuts several times, skip to 3.5 mins if wish....

This following technique is cool ! Stamp impression into hot embossing powder.
After doing 3 layers of EP and when last layer is still very hot, press a prepared stamp into the hot EP for a textured look. Prepare your stamp first by coating with embossing ink/Versamark, have it real handy , heat tool in one hand , stamp ready in other hand to stamp down quickly and hold for a few secs. Remove and if you are not happy with impression , it can be heated again, melt and stamp again when hot... Can get cool textures as shown here--

PW webisode .. skip to abt 14 mins where Gail shows how to do this--
http://www.paperwishes.com/webisodes...ge=high&id=629

First tag ( pics 1-3) has a tissue paper/distress ink sprays base. Then black embossing paste/PW fern stencil, when dry the painted with Perfect Pearls, mixing the powder into a little water. The copper look label die cut is done with copper EP and a stamp impression as described above.

The next tag (pics 4 &5) is made from a kleenix box cardboard. I covered completely in embossing powder . 1st layer is gold and last 2 layers are black, they will mix a little when heated. It was stamped when hot -across the centre with a background stamp. Bike and banner is done with Platinum EP, the banner stamped with For You rubber stamp when hot. Circle under For You banner was also stamped into hot black embossing powder with background stamp. Used a portion of the wrought-iron fence behind the bike. Tim Holtz silver glitter washi tape. PW black glitter ribbon.

Challenge!
Make a tag with your choice of Mixed Media background. (still have one from last month?? you are half way there!)
Embellish with at least 1 Faux Metal die cut embellishment using embossing powders AND use some other metallic medium- rub on paints/perfect pearls/washi tape/liquid pearls/ etc on your tag as well !

MOST OF ALL- ENJOY PLAYING !!!

Default Ps !

PS two more ideas for textured backgrounds.

1)Napkins! as in the UK phone box tag. Found these napkins in a local $ store and could not resist ! Use only top layer of napkin, mod podge to tag, trim. Embellish -here used another napkin to stack a phone box. PW red ribbon.
2)Black embossing paste/stencils

Heather wow... You have certainly given us a lot of examp,Es and encouragement. I hope to have time to experiment- which is what I call anything MM since I make such a mess and rarely get anything useful, LOL.
Your metallic embellish are great, love the napkin technique, and have wanted to try the hot stamp into EP technique since Gail did it several years ago... Read somewhere that you really prefer rubber stamps for that? Can the clear stamps hold up to the heat?

I have just used rubber because they make a deeper impression but I see that Gail used a silicone stamp so I will try that today and let you know !

Here is my trial using a PW silicone stamp... and black archival ink instead of embossing ink in 4 layers of EP.
Worked well ! and can see absolutely no harm to the stamp.

Default mixed media

Well I found a couple of wooden tags so when we got home from a day trip tought i would play. I knew i wanted to make something for me to hang in my craft room. So here is what i did. One i tried the embossing with clear embossing powder on a folder. Really like how it turned out, but could have used some color next time.So i used the folder for the front of my card. But first i used some Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany on it. I made a fake metal out of a little heart that i cut out 4 times and put together. I used silver and gold. Like this side better. Then i used the same on the sentiment and when dry i stamped the butter fly on it(both sentiment and butterfly from pw. Flower and twine from stash same with lace. I think i got all that down right,lol. The one picture shows how big the tag is 6 by 3 i think and the width of it.

Rosie, your wooden tag is so cool !!
I like your background especially , great idea using an embossing folder with embossing powder... will have to try that , and the 2 tones of ink looks lovely! Love that the little heart is 2 tone metallic. Hope you have it hanging up now and happy you were able to play
