Hi everyone! I am in the last minute again with my version of Tim Holtz July 12 tags of 2014.
I made my tag pretty similar to Tim's, because I got these dies recently and wanted to use them again. For the background, I used Seedless Preserves Distress Paint, Peacock Feathers Distress Stain and Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I wanted the background to be pretty dark, since this scene is at the bottom of the sea. I stamped the shrink plastic tag with a text stamp before dry embossing it and for the embossing I used the Ink Splats folder, which works well for irregular bubbles.
Here you can see the stamping on the plastic tag a little better. The seahorses were painted with pink and purple Distress Paints and I used beads for the eyes.
I really liked Tim's idea for making sand, it will also be perfect for 3-D projects. I used slightly different ingredients, adding some Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder and Black Soot Distress Glitter. The texture of the die cuts partly covered with Distress Embossing Powder is really cool.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with a Sizzix tutorial.
