Tim Holtz Challenge 12 Tags of 2015 - February
Hi there thanks for nipping over t my Blog.
Last year I was determined to join in with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags Challenge but I failed pretty miserably to keep up. This year again I was determined and so far so good because I have only missed one?!? January ??? Still here I am in February I have a little more tme on my hands at the moment because I am not on the Clarity Challenge because later in the year we will be very busy, also I have stopped my Gelli Plate classes for now because it is logistically impossible to get me and my two kids to 3 different places at the same time so something had to give ?? For now. I will be doing one off Mixed Media / Gelli Plate Classes when I can get them organised.
|I didn't have the Heart Die so I used my Tim Holtz Dress Form Die instead.|
So I thought I would do a mini picture tutorial but I kept changing my mind on the backing layout so I don't have as many pictures as I would like, I think you will get the idea though?
|For the Tag itself I just used a drop of Weathered Wood re-inker on my craft mat spread with a little water and then just rubbed the tag in it to make a base colour.|
|Then to darken the edges I made a puddle of distress ink with a drop of Vintage Photo Re-inker and water and just dragged the edges of the Tag through it, that's how you get the tattered look.|
|With the Claritystamps - Word chain Love word and Numbers with oval stamp. |
I used the Weathered wood again to stamp them directly all over the Tag randomly this gives you the look of secondary stamping because the background ink is watered down and the stamped ink is pure.
|Here look, it does leave a nice shadow, if you flicked the pen out a little you could get rough edges and could get quite a deep look.|
|See don't you agree?|
I hope you like my Tag, it would be lovely if you left a comment.
Bye for now.
