Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my versions of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 August. I love masking techniques and how much dimension you can get on a flat surface with these techniques. I made two tags.
For the first tag, I used London images from the Paris to London set, which I hadn't inked up yet. The background was done with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Victorian Velvet Distress Stain. Big Ben, the man, the car and the crown on top of the car were all masked. I don't have Tim's masking sheets, instead I used Eclipse tape.
The flag was perfect for stamping with markers, since it looks really good stamped in red and blue.
Thank you for stopping by!!
