A blast from the past. This is my very first Tim Holtz inspired tag. I grabbed a set of his distressed markers and a few additional items and got started on my tag. Here are the results.
|Love. Love. Love!|
|First I stamped, and water colored my images.
Also tore the bottom edge, inked edges, added splats to finish this part of the tag,
as shown above. Allow to dry.
|I added a bit of paint, smashed the ink pad and added some distress stain.
If you do not have a craft sheet, wax paper will do.
Next, you will also need to spritz with water to blend colors.
|Drag piece through paint, stain and ink. Allow to dry
or speed drying time with heat gun.
|Drag tag through remaining mix.|
|Stamp over colored tag.|
|Add large grommet and ribbons.
Note. I spritzed the lace and ribbon to
make it look more distressed and match my tag.
I heated the ribbon to help it dry faster, which also curled the lace.
Love the look.
|A closer look.|
Don’t forget to come back because there’s more!
