Tim's Tag September 2015

Had some play time today and wanted to make my September Tim's tag.  Have you seen his tag for this month?  Swoon...

12 tags of 2015: September | www.timholtz.com

I followed his directions for the alcohol ink background, but of course, wanted to do my own thing color wise.  And although I love the swirl stencil he used...again, wanted to do my own thing.  Yes, I do dance to the beat of my own drum!

The size of the overlay was made smaller, as I wanted the color on the background tag to show. And, I stamped the same image on the tag as is on the overlay.  

Since I didn't have the frosted product he used, I stamped the dragonfly on some Wendy Vecchi Clearly for Art Modeling Film and added some Distress Crackle Paint to give it a similar effect.

A fun tag to create...love the techniques and will use them again!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  #8 Ranger Tag and Specialty Stamping Paper; and misc. black card stock
Ink:  Ranger Jet Black Archival and Twisted Citron Distress Ink
Stamps:  Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Classics #1
All the other stuff:  alcohol inks, alcohol blending solution, clear modeling paste, Tim Holtz Burlap stencil, spatula, Wendy Vecchi Clearly for Art Modeling Film, Distress Crackle Paint, seam binding, Mini Ink Blending Tool, brads, foam adhesive

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
