Steampunk Tags with Magicals and Embossing powders by Monika

Hello sweeties,

Monika here to show you my steampunk style Mixed Media Tags. I have designed XL size tags with grunge background. I have used my favourite Lindy’s Gang magicals and embossing powders to create interesting textures on both pieces. There is a step-by-step tutorial in which I will show how I made these Steampunk Mixed Media Tags.


  1. Cut two big size cardboard pieces, I have used two pieces of cardboard packaging with same size.
  2. Cover the back side of both tags with white watercolor card stock.
  3. Use a few stamps to add some details to the background and then add Lindy’s Gang Magicals – Bayou boogie gold, black hole black, tears on my pillow tangerine.
  4. Create some textures by using modelling paste and stencil on the front side of the tags. Dry them completely.
  5. Use Lindy’s Gang Magicals – bayou boogie gold, black hole black, tears on my pillow tangerine and create grungy background.
  6. Use Lindy’s Gang Embossing powders on the chipboard elements.
  7. Add clay elements, embossed chipboard pieces and dots to create the composition on the both tags.
  8. Color the clay elements using Lindy’s Gang Magicals – rizzo’s rowdy red, black hole black, tears on my pillow tangerine.
  9. Use Finnabair waxes to give the vintage effects. Add Paper dolls and sentiments from Tim Holtz idea-ology.
  10. Add splatters using white acrylic paint to finish the both tags.
