12 Tags of 2013 July

Published July 29, 2013 by isisimaginings

I cannot believe it’s been so long since my last blog post, it’s been a very busy few weeks.  I’m not going to waffle on because I want to show you my tag for Tim’s 12 Tags of 2013.

You can see Tim’s tag in all its glory HERE.  I didn’t have the dies, etc., that he used, but I did try to use similar colours & I used my Umbrella Man die that my friend, Jen, very kindly gave me.

This was the background after using distress stains with a brayer as per Tim’s instructions & then stamping with assorted TH stamps.

Here’s the finished tag after adding some washi tape & assorted embellishments.  I love the effect of the pewter distress stain in particular on the crackle painted grunge paper.  Not so sure about the winged skull, but I couldn’t find anything else, so that will probably be changed at some point.

Thanks for looking.  Until next time,

Love & light

  • Actually, I rather like the skull in the book plate! I think the whole tag works really well; the colours, the images and the textures. I often wish I had the Umbrella Man, but I seem to want so many crafty things I have to stop somewhere! Julie Ann x
