Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 June.
I used different colours and stamps than Tim did and added a few extra items to my tag. The blueprint watch was stamped with Archival Jet Black ink on watercolour paper and watercoloured with a mix of Distress Markers and Distress Ink. I found that I got a more vibrant red by using Fired Brick ink rather than the marker, so I used the ink for the red parts. It is so easy to add a shadow with the Pumice Stone marker and I love the little splatters.
I loved Tim's idea of using distress paint, ink and stain together for the background, and used Spun Sugar paint, Fired Brick ink and Barn Door stain. It was stamped with a script stamp. The little hearts were die cut from mat board, inked with Gathered Twigs and Barn Door and coated with Crackle Accents.
Thanks for looking!!
