Welcome to everyone............especially my new followers !!! I am thrilled that you have joined me on my journey in Blogland.
I am so fed up with the wind and rain the last few weeks so decided to create a quick tag using warm colours, layers and various Distress Inks.
You can find the technique 'Faded Layers' in Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2, page 43.
I did have a 'Happy Accident' when tying my ribbons. My own fault as I did not use the rings on my Sizzix die cut tag and pulled the ribbons too tight !!
However, I just cut the top off the original tag and layered it to another, which I inked with Rusty Hinge DI...........lovely and warm :-) added some twine, adhered with Ranger Wonder Tape.
I used a variety of Tim's Stampers Anonymous Stamps and an Ideaology Mask to create the layers.
There's a touch of Distress marker's too, which I diluted with my water brush.
It was really fun and took my mind off the horrible weather for a while. Like many of you in the UK and Europe I am looking forward to sunnier climes.
As always thank you for taking the time to visit and if you leave a comment I will repay the compliment.
It will be my 1st Blogaversary in a month and I plan to have a giveaway to followers so please pop back for more details.
Crafty Hugs as always
