July Tag

Hi Everyone,

Running last minute again (no change there then!) I have for you my take on Tim's Tag for July.  For his technique remix this month Tim is using his Watercolour technique from July 2016 and Layered words from April 2015, his original along with his step by step can be viewed  Here.


This is a strange choice for July I suppose, to be thinking about Christmas, but I purchases this set of the mini blue print Christmas stamps only last week and just HAD to play with them.


The stamps were watercoloured with distress inks and micro glaze carefully brushed over the coloured areas for a resist before giving the tag a wash of pumice stone and a flick of black soot. As there was quite a lot going on in the background, I kept the embellishments to the bare minimum


Holiday Script Thinlets and a chit chat sticker made the Greeting for the layered words, and my trusty sewing machine was out once more for the stitching around the edges.


I quite like the effect and may well use it for some of my Christmas cards this year.  These would also make really special gift tags I think.
