Hello Crafty Friends.
How has your June been thus far? I hope fabulous! June has been absolutely beautiful here in Nova Scotia. The past two weekends have been spent exploring places in the province and working on our gardens- which I love doing. At night I have been slowly adding details to my version of Tim Holtz' June 2016 tag. The finishing touches were completed today so I took the tag outside for sunny shots.
The base was created using Distress Stains in Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass. While it was drying I stamped the distressed honeycomb background (from set THMM101) onto tissue paper. Vintage Distress Collage Medium was applied to the dried tag and then the tissue paper was adhered.The seahorse from Mini Sand & Sea die and the large tag from Sizzix' 658784 both die cut the dried paper.
Tim Holtz' Dot Fad stencil had Distress Paint (Abandoned Coral) lightly applied and then flipped over and pressed against white card stock. While it was on the paper, I applied Ranger's Texture Paste randomly to the stencil. After drying it was adhered to the back of the tag.
The background had Picket Fence Distress Paint flicked randomly. Then White Opal Liquid Pearls and Star Dust Stickles was used to create happy mini bubbles. Faux plastic netting was added to base. White card stock was die cut (from Sizzix' 661190 and 658759). Pumice Stone Distress Stain was used on one die cut and after drying clear Distress Crackle was added.
Picket Fence Distress Paint was applied to an Industrious Stickers border and adhered as shown.
Lastly, Abandoned Coral paint was used on white card stock, dried, and hole punched randomly along all four edges. Thick brown twine was woven in the holes (I like how it looks like rope). Stickers from Chitchat was placed as shown with Distress Ink in Black Soot used as a border around each word.
Thanks for stopping by! I do hope you enjoyed the tag. :)
Have a happy, crafty day!
