We had our drop in today to make August tags inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012. This was a bit of a challenge since I had to make quite a few modifications, but I think it turned out pretty fabulous!
- I don't have Tim's new cameo stamp set, so I embossed a silhouette image by Hero Arts and framed it with a frame I cut with my Silhouette. It was cut from white cardstock, then sprayed with black Dylusions ink & Cappuccino Perfect Pearl Mist.
- I don't have the embossing folder with the oval window that Tim used, so I took this as a great project to use my Sizzix Embossing Diffusers (here's a video about how they work) together with one of my embossing folders (I think this is Damask). I used the round Diffuser, off set from the center to mimic the oval shape Tim used. (Mom's tag, below, used the oval Diffuser.)
- I used a mix of blue & green paint on my background- love how that combo turned out!
- I added new Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy dry glitter to my flowers... so pretty! I think I'm gonna have fun with this stuff! I started painting the new paintable Rock Candy Distress Stickles, then decided to dunk them right into my tub of glitter :)
