Tim's 12 Tags - June

Well, it's halfway through the year (where is it going?) and time for Tim Holtz's latest tag & technique  Much to my amazement, I haven't fallen off yet!  I really liked this one - although there was a slight strop with self when I couldn't find where I'd stored the watercolour paper.  (Panic was averted when it turned up in a box where I was sure it would never be.)

As luck would have it, my friendly postman had just delivered a beautiful stamp (from Inkylicious) which I wanted to use, so this was a great opportunity.  For colours I used Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Aged Mahogany and Stormy Sky - when I'd finished it reminded me of the pre- First World War advertisement which suited the stamp.

I was a bit worried about using the three products (ink, stain and acrylic) on the background tag, but I had faith in Tim and, what d'ya know, it worked well.  Background stamps were from my stash.  So - on to July!

Crafty hugs,

Keren
