You Color My World....{MCT Trending Now~Mixed Media}

Good Morning everyone!

I know I have apologized before but I am going to do it again and say I am so sorry I haven't been around in bloggy land lately.  With the kids home this summer their activities have kept me SO busy. Between baseball and football there is barely enough time for me to go grocery shopping...LOL! The kids will be back to school soon and I promise I will be making my rounds on a regular basis. Please hang in there with me for a few more weeks...LOL!!!

Anyways, thanks for stopping by today for another
Trending Now with My Creative Time!

Today we are getting inky and doing some Mixed Media using My Creative Time stamps and dies!
I have to be honest and say I am not really sure I did this right but following in the footsteps of Tim Holtz I got inky and had a blast creating my tag.
Take a look and let me know what you think :)
To make my tag I started out my heat embossing the Best Friends Background using clear glitter embossing powder.Its hard to see in the pic but the embossing is so pretty!!
Next I got inky and created a rainbow over top the embossing with a mix of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Keeping up with the inking, I used the paint brush swoosh in the new Let's Paint the Town set and stamped it using black ink directly over all the colors. I wiped off the extra ink so you could see the background through the inking too. Such a fun background this created!
For the sentiment and paint brush, I used the same Let's Paint the Town set. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock and hand cut. I then layered it on some kraft cardstock and again hand cut it out. It was then popped up onto the tag with some foam.
The paint brush was die cut and for some extra texture I stamped the handle with the Grainy Background stamp set. The paint part of the brush was inked up using some Distress Ink .
Finally to finish up my tag, I took some white crinkle ribbon and inked it up using the same colors from the tag. Love how the crinkle ribbon can be colored to match a project!!
