Couple of Tags for April


Visited Tim Holtz Blog and loved the techniques used for 12 Tags of 2015 - April.  I wanted to give them a try since I recently received some of his products, especially the Sizzix Thinlets - both Adventure word dies, which I love and wanted to use.

Here are my two tags for April

The tag on the left I added my extra touches, by embossing the whole tag with an embossing folder and going over the raised  design with white ink and applying distress crackle paint clear - rock candy on the flowers and the small stud stars.  I think the crackle add another touch of texture, yet subtle. Also the embossing pushes the colored distress marker flowers to the back, which makes the whole design more subtle but beautiful.

I also love the idea of how the word dies are being used, so cool.  Love the techniques.

I would love to add my tags to :
