Journey

Lot's of splotchy fun is happening today on my blog. I was inspired by Tim's Tag of August.  I pulled out a set I haven't used before with all the different traveling images to create my tag.

 This tag took three tries to get it right. Those masks got some serious workout.  I started with smearing  weather wood ink and Vintage Photo ink onto the craft mat and added spritzed water.  I dragged the tag through it and heat set it and then picked up the spots by laying the tag on the ink.

I stamped my masks and cut them out. I then stamped the card with black archival ink.  I masked it and stamped the filmstrip.  I stamped all the images using black ink and highlighted them with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.

 I wanted to play with different color combos and tried out a new yellow distress paint with orange distress paint.

 I mixed the persimmons with the seedless preservers and made a great color combo that I think I will use it for a future Halloween project.

I liked that color combo so much that I created another full piece of cardstock using the same colors.


.Have a wonderful Sunday!

  15. Fabulous take on Tim's tag Sue and I love the images. I need to get that set to use when making my next card for Hubby. He has a thing about 'Route 66'! Love the vibrant backgrounds you made for use in the future. Those Distress Paints look as though they're very useful to have in the craftroom, Lol!
