Tag # 3....


Here is my latest in the "Tim Tags"

As I mentioned before -- take a peek at Tim Holtz's blog for the tutorial.
Today he used my favourite (and most often used) background inking and staining techniques -- although I will say I LOVE the white Paint with the splatter stamp! *wink*. Instead of decorating the tag the way he did, I used an image of a vintage postcard that I had scanned, re sized, printed and edged in UTEE for a canvas class I taught this week AND I used some misc vintage trims and trinkets I had in my tickle trunk.
The lace at the bottom of the card was stained using a little water and Forest Moss Distress Ink. I know I'll be using that technique again.
Have a creative day everyone.... off to make some Christmas Gifts!
