Here is my August 2013 Tag based on the Tim Holtz tags of 2013 august tutorial.
I used old paper, and brushed corduroy distress stain for the background of the tag.
Here are the masks I used. I did the clouds first, then the balloon, then the sun and the compass. Then I stamped the background images over all the masks. I used fruit punch stickles on the jewelry embellishment.
It was a fun technique to try out!
Here are the stamps I used since some people have asked. I just gathered up some stamps I have and used them together. I kind of planned as I found some stamps that would go with the balloon. I colored on the stamps with a set of Tombow pens I have, the set colors are called "Grunge".
I used the Tim Holtz balloon stamp and stamped it with Ranger black archival ink. For the rest of the stamps I colored on them with the pen ink and then stamped them.
Background: Stampabilities, Tapestry Pattern stamp. About 4" X 5 ". You can't see it very well on the stamp.
I'm not a great stamper...I'm learning from all of you. I also am not that particular about the whole process. I like the mistakes. I think mistakes are interesting. I'm finicky about weird things like composition sometimes, but most of the time I'm just trying to learn how stuff works! Actually I spend most of my time trying to find where I put things!
The sun stamp is a favorite! It's still for sale at a few places online. Here, and Here, and Here.
