I was totally amazed & shocked (and speechless!) when Tim released his tag for March!!! Why??? Every month, all the entries go into a prize draw - imagine my shock when I saw my name in the post as one of the prize winners!!!!! (& thanks to everyone who commented on my post!) So at the moment I'm looking forward to the arrival of my prize!!!
So, onward & upward!
This month, Tim used his 'smudge stamping' technique to create two tags. I did try this before when I took Tim's Creative Chemistry 102 online class although I kept muddling the two tags up!) so I had another go! (I didn't get them muddled this time!)
As you can see, the one on the right is paler, more subtle, as it uses second-impression stamping, having already stamped the tag on the left, & using just the ink remaining on the stamp for the second tag, then a little bit of smudging to slightly blur the outlines. I think with a little more practice, I shall really get to enjoy this technique, and 'two for the price of one'!!!
I used vintage photo, seedless preserves, peacock feathers & peeled paint ink pads, with a little spiced marmalade through the stencil for the background. I used the same colours on the tag ribbons, but added more water to create a paler ribbon for the second tag. For the little flowers, I used seedless preserves paint, with an addition of a pale grey/blue on the right.
Back soon! Kay
