September - 12 Tags of 2015


Long time no see, how are you?

I am well and happy.

Every month I checkout 12 Tags of 2015 by Tim Holtz.  If the inspiration hits the right spot and I have the supplies, which I most likely do, because I have been buying Tim Holtz products for a while now.  They are reliable, strong quality and easy to use. Just  fabulous.  I enjoy creating with them all the time.

But this time, I need to buy supplies for the September 12 Tags of 2015.  What a fabulous tag.  I also wanted to try out alcohol inks, like forever.

I played around with alcohol inks on alcohol ink card stock, wow the outcomes and the possibilities with different colors is awesome, especially when you add gold mixative.

Anyways, here is my tag for September  (click image to enlarge and see details)

I used a tag die cut to get my tag shape from water color paper.
I used brushed corduroy distress spray stain with spritz of water to create the tag background.

The alcohol inks I used to create the background for the butterflies are ; gold mixative, wild plum, denim, butterscotch.

I love the transparent texture paste matte by Ranger (Tim Holtz).  So smooth and light to apply.  I have for ages wanted to buy this texture paste.  I have watched many videos of his demonstrations.  Simon Says Stamp is the best outlet to buy his products.  Very reliable and gets to Australia within two weeks. The online store in Australia does not have most of Mr Holtz products...

I used brushed corduroy distress ink on a sponge applicator to highlight the transparent texture paste.

I cut the butterflies from Velum paper and stuck them on so the wings would be free, to create dimension.

Love the way this tag worked out.   Awesom.

I would like to enter my tag to 12 Tags of 2015 September


Thanks for stopping by
