Three further techniques today but I'm only blogging one as there is too much detail on the front of the tag on other two and their fairly messy as I concentrated on the technique rather than the finish.
So today I'm showing Stamping with Markers technique, it's not perfect as I don't have any of the speciality stamping paper yet. I got fairly carried away with the technique and have about a dozen or so different version the tag on the left is a third generation watercolour.
Instead of doing the 12 tags of Christmas this year Tim is doing the 12 tags of 2012, which I think is a great idea, December has always been to hectic for me to join in the fun but one tag a month is a great idea.
I've used the large book-plate stamp for the background using pine needles distress ink. Seafoad EP as the grout for the butterflies, it's a little too bright but it's the closest I have to the cement. Finished off with four Prima flowers held together with a heart shaped brad that had a splash of green alcohol ink. For full details see Tim's blog.
I had great fun making the background for this card using an acrylic paint resist technique, plenty of inks and a bit of spritzing too. And of course one of my favourite stamps from Crafty individuals. This one was for Galina.
I love getting messy with inks, paints and different types of mediums.
Life's a joy when I get to play with something that's just a little bit different and it turns out ok ;-)
