July 2013 Tag based on Tim Holtz tags of 2013

Here is my July tag based on the Tim Holtz July 2013 tag tutorial!

I tried making stripes with red and blue distress ink with the brayer. It worked pretty well but you can't see it because I ended up covering it with my dollies and other paper. I used the Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions paper because I had some and they have some Patriotic Sheets. I made a paper flag from some Tim Holtz paper and a skewer stick.

The star is the small sizzix 3-d star die. I covered it with the crackle stuff, so it kind of looks like a tin star, but it's just paper with some cardstock on the back to make it flat.

I love the little vintage paper dolls.

I stamped on the crinkle ribbon and inked it up in red white and blue, like the tutorial!

It's an Inkadinkado stamp called mini patriotic eagle. There are 2 stamps on the sheet. It was $1.99! That's what I'm talking about!

After I posted the above tag, I finished my second patriotic tag! Here it is. 
Lady Liberty!

Then since I was still getting the hang of the ink and brayer technique, I completed my patriotic goofy owl on chipboard.

Happy 4th of July!
