June Tag and Indian Summer
This is a tag I did for All Things Tim August Indian Summer Challenge. It is also going to stand as my June tag for the 12 tags of 2013 as it uses some of the same techniques as the June tag on Tim Holtz's blog. I stamped the tree image and colored in a water-color technique with Distress Markers. It is mounted on a piece of Coredinations cardstock cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die. The tag itself is actually a background paper I made using Gelli plate technique with acrylic paints. I cut the paper and glued it to a regular manila tag to make it the right thickness. It is hard to see it is overstamped with an Inkadinkado background stamp. The challenge for the month was to make an item using red, orange, yellow, and black. You also can't really see that some of the acrylic paint I used is a metallic red, so the background does actually have a shimmer. I am trying to catch up to this month's techniques for the tags of 2013 and also have some ATC swaps I joined that I will be doing, so will be posting again soon. Life just seems to get in my way alot for stamping and creating time.
