I used Distress inks for this. I am new to the sponge Duabers and think I actually find the mini blending tool a lot easier to work with but guessing in time I will get better practice after all makes perfect
Oh My goodness it feels like time flies and I am always doing things at the last minute lately
I totally love the technique for this months Tag and had a basic Idea I wanted to try though far less colourful
I love the stencil I used from crafters workshop (and can not wait to get my hands on some of Tim’s I have one on its way here atm) everything else, the inks, the stamps is all from the Distress and Tim Holtz lines of products.
I sat with it for 2 days and as much as part of me wants to add to this I so love the simplicity of it I have decided to leave it be and let it be simple.
I really love how the spooky trees stencil works so well with the distress browns. I adore this elephant stamp and have been itching to use it since I got it for a bargain price on ebay (under $10 can you believe I got that set so cheap)
Anyway this is my Tag: Hope you enjoy it!!
And gasp shock horror yes I know I am actually doing tags this year, though I also have an otp based on the same embossed foil tape technique as well to share in my next post.
As always Mr Holtz’s tag is awesome.
Though my Stash has grown considerably re his products I still do not have loads of the things he used.
My Foil tape is from a roll I got off ebay, the numbers are from the ‘Say it’ stamp set I got for chrissy, (though the siloutte is one of his remenant rubz) and my pocket watch is from the x cut dies Pocket watches set 🙂
Of course I used diff quotes and chit chat words.
And some watch Parts however for the most part I used the same sorts of techniques. With the exception of the splatter and the stenciled background. My little dots are made with one of the Tim stamps I have.
Here it is My First Tag for 2014 😀
And so the journey begins for another year. You may wonder why I don’t add loads of ribbon and bits to the tops of my tags, honestly I like a clean look and it just feels a bit messy and cluttered to me to do so.
Wow what an intense couple of months it has been for me
I actually have had this done, photographed and waiting for a blog post for well over a week.
Anyway here is the link to the original Tim Holtz tag.
I so so so love the Chalkboard Technique so much though it is still something I am playing with and have yet to master I am really happy with how this turned out mixing the white and coloured chalks
I used my new set of Tim Holtz Steampunk? cling stamps, some Scrappy Cat and I am pretty sure its a Kaiser or Inkadinkado frame stamp
Coloured and white Chalk and followed the instructions
Can not believe we are almost at the last journal page for this year time to start thinking what I will do for next year…
