Here I am 3 days early with my February tag following Tim Holtz monthly tags, teehee.
Yes spoken like a true procrastinator ;)
I am really happy with how this one turned out.
Plus it was so nice to get in my scrap/craft room and create, instead of organize :)
So here is my tag all complete :)
I didn't have the distress stain the Tim Holtz used so I used my distress inks.
I inked up the whole tag with Barn Door, then ran in through the embossing folder, then I added my favourite red colour ink...Aged Mahogany. I used the last colour straight from the ink pad.
The technique this month was to use the distress markers.
I had picked mine up at the beginning of this month....sadly a few of them seem to be dried up...so I will contact the company I bought them from to send me some working ones ;)
I stamped this image 3 times on watercolour paper.
The distress markers are a bit different in colour then the distress inks so I wanted to find the perfect red for my heart :)
Plus I wanted to layer this image.
Tip- when colouring with water colours, apply water on the paper before adding your colour, it seems to flow better.
My photos are out of order and I can't fix it soo I will follow the photos.
I embossed the black paper and then used the Picket Fence distress marker on it so pop out the embossing :)
I added a fragment charm after I inked and stamped on some paper and adhered it to the back of the charm.
Here is the photo I wanted :)
Here is the winged heart all done. I fussy cut out the image, then on a second image, I fussy cut the heart out. I popped them all up with foam dots.
I used a heart shaped grunge board shape to place it on.
For the grunge heart, I coloured it with my distress ink (yes Aged Mahogany) and attached it with my tiny attacher...1st time using it ;)
Believe it or not, I have thought about doing this.
Making your tissue tape into ribbon.
I love it..another use for tissue, or washi tape :)
I even added a bit of distress ink on it.
The charm was gold, but I used my alcohol ink to colour it.
Another look at the completed tag :)
Now if this wasn't enough creativeness for you, I have more ;)
Here is a video I did for my January tag :)
Oh thats not all...here is a closer look at my February Tag :)
I hope you all have had a very Creative Tuesday :)
I have...but I am still working on my stamp storage....its going to be a long process.
