Apologies, I have been missing for a wee while - nothing serious, just a few technical issues which, fingers crossed, have been resolved now. Apologies if I owe you a visit!
You can see Tim's tag HERE, as usual I did not have many of the things he used so I had to improvise. I ended up doing two tags and I could not decide which I liked best, so I will show you both!
I used the Acorn Blueprint stamp and the background was created using the Dots Stamp from the Dots and Florals set.
I followed Tim's instructions using Picket Fence Distress Paint, followed by Distress Spray Stains in Rusty Hinge and Antique Linen.
The acorn has been coloured with Distress Inks and the edges of the tag were finished off with Ranger Foil Sheets (Vintage set). You can see a little of the shine in the above photo, I love these foil sheets, they do give a lovely vintage feel.
Now for my second tag:
I tried an experiment with the fabulous new Lucky Clover and Ground Espresso Distress Spray Stains, I was not sure at first about the combination but when it dried I just loved it!
I also wanted to try out Tim's technique where he creates his own colour of ink pad, but unfortunately I don't have the clear base ink pad so I spread a lot of different autumn colours onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and dragged my Ranger Watercolour card through it. Not as good a Tim's but I did like the result. I stamped and cut out my maple leaf from one of the pieces.
I really like the colour of the leaf against the background...
Thanks for looking, I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs, Anne xxx
