I started several projects and am looking forward to sharing sometime soon. Tonight is about the Tim Holtz June tag.
This month we learned how to use our layering stencils and our mini distress ink pads to make some watercolor backgrounds. What a fun process. I could seriously sit down and make stacks of these backgrounds.
I started with my stencils and without thinking pulled random ones and then some color combos with my minis. These are the backgrounds I created.
Two of the backgrounds really stood out to me so I created two tags this month. First up is one using the bubble stencil.
Distress colors on this tag were Faded Jeans, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint. The compass from the Travel Blue Print (CMS148) was my focal image. The sentiment is from Random Quotes set (CMS182).
The other technique this month was water coloring images with the mini pads and a water brush. What a quick and easy way to watercolor!
My second tag used the Crocodile stencil and was all about the pink.
Distress colors on this one were Picked Raspberry, Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen. I also added some greens, Peeled Paint, and Mowed Lawn on the stamped image. The dragonfly is from the Classics # 1 set (SCF001) and the sentiment is from the French Market set (small set from Michaels).
The dragonfly wings got a little shimmer with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl.
