Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Things with Wheels Tag using AALL & Create's Tag it Yourself Die Set and Tim Holtz's Sideshow Stamp Set

The snow is flying outside (7" on my driveway at last check) and it's a great time to be crafting inside!  I'm doing just that and enjoyed this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme of things with wheels.  I made a tag using AALL & Create's Tag it Yourself die set and Tim Holtz's Sideshow stamp set.

I started by cutting out two tags using my Sizzix Big Shot and the aforementioned Tag it Yourself die set from AALL & Create.  The first tag was cut out of Distress Kraft Heavystock and second one was cut out of Dina Wakley's Collage Sparks 1 patterned paper.

I sewed the two tags together using my sewing machine and added some acrylic paint to change the colors a bit (more white, more blue and some pops of yellow and green).  Then I stamped the silhouette image from Tim Holtz's Sideshow stamp set (which has the greatest scribbly background fonts EVER in my opinion) onto white cardstock.  I used a black Sharpie to really color in the silhouette.  Then I spritzed Distressed Ink Spray (Twisted Citron) through Tim Holtz's Gradient Dots stencil on newsprint paper and tore that up to add as collage scraps.

I assembled it all together and added some scribbly doodled dots.  I used another great Tim stamp set, Seasonal Scribbles, to stamp out the Peace sentiment.  Then I stamped some plus signs from Tim's Glitch 2 stamp set and cut those into a scallop shape.  I made another colorful scallop shape for the bottom of the tag.

I glued on the sentiment and scallops, added a few more touches of green and outlined the tags in black Sharpie to finish it off.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
