Just a very quick post here to show you my June tag entry, see Tim's original Here where he shows you exactly how to create the effect.
I chose to use just three colours through the Dot Fade stencil for my tag, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, and Picked Raspberry, but when this is spritzed with the water, the colours blend and it looks like I have used many more.
As the Swifts are flying high as a kite in June, I thought it fitting to use this lovely bird from the Bird Feather Plate for my main image. I also purchased the Random quotes plate with the intention of using the same sentiment that Tim has on the original, but as happens so many times when crafting, I changed my mind! same stamp plate different quote.
My cog started out one colour, before I decided to 'leave ordinary behind and use all three colours this time using distress paint. I found the numbers brad just the right size for this cog, and then the cog sort of developed into a sun with little dots of paint making the sun rays.
The ribbon was dyed scrunched and tied with the same technique as described by Tim.
I distressed the edges of the coloured card with black soot before attaching it to a tag and going around all the edges of the tag with Gathered Twigs.
Believe it or not I did use all three colours again on the bird, but with the water they are so subtle its difficult to pick out the Raspberry, I quite like it soft though as it does not lose the detail.
Here is my little atc for June, same techniques but this time using the Classics 17 Plate and the Lattice work stencil
And Finally a nosey at my atc hanger so far half way there already!
