I know cutting it fine this month as well, even worse my Journal pages have been finished for almost 2 full weeks.
I have been rather busy with a bear commission. Which I will share a pic of later today.
Here is the Link to the Maestro Mr Tim Holtz’s Tag
I don’t have the Distress Markers and if I am completely honest am in no hurry to own them, yes I have played with them but given I own a lot of the inks and both water pens I think they are not a high priority for this budget scrapper.
As soon as I saw the tag I knew what I wanted to do. Use my Midnight Fair Stamps as they are perfect to colour.
I used salty ocean distress paint, mowed lawn ink, and stormy sky stain but instead of going down my manila cardstock I went across to give the look of water, grass and sky. (See Tim’s post link above for how to do it)
I then did a little misting and spritz and flick. Pulled out a Tim ATC stamp to stamp the background and a kaiser stamp for the little fancy 1/4 circle things.
Stamped my Midnight Fairies and watercoloured them with distress inks and water brushes.
Added a smidge of perfect pearls to the fairies wings and to create the sparkle effect (just felt like a change from glitter) also wrote the month in perfect pearls.
I added the flowers which look very funny in the pics but are really sweet pearlescent ones with a small raised red dot in the center
and viola this months take was done.
Kind of simple looking but I am really happy with how it turned out.
