I've been playing along with the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014.
I'm loving the July 2014 tag's water theme! Here is my tag. I kept it pretty much the same as the tutorial as I just wanted to try out all the techniques! Plus I love the July 2014 tag!
I didn't have any of the dies, so I used stamps instead. I stamped the seahorse, then I crackled the seahorse like the tutorial and also used distress stain in the cracks like the tutorial. It still worked. The other stamps were stamped on water color paper then colored with a water pen and distress ink.
I'd never tried the sand technique before. It was pretty fun. I had utee, and I just mixed in some embossing powder and various glitters until it looked like sand. It worked great!
I'd also never embossed plastic before, and it worked great also.
It's always fun to see the tag come together after you've created all the little pieces. I used a fun stencil for the background and had some fun splattering everything with the Tim Holtz marker spritzer tool!
The tag was fun! Makes me want to take a boat ride somewhere or pet a dolphin!
I ordered the seahorse die's used in the Tim Holtz tutorial but they were back-ordered! Drats! The bubble embossing folder looks very fun too. I would like to get it as well to go with some baby bath photos!
