It's March 1st which means time to play along with the March tag from Tim Holtz.

 As you can see I was trying out Tim's smudge technique with the fully inked and the shadow stamped version.

Here is my finished tag:
I went a different route. I loved the birds and nature theme from Tim and can't wait for my new stamps to ship so I can play with them but decided to use a Stampers Anonymous Travel Away set.  I haven't inked up this set and was glad to play with them on my tag. 

I added a hint of color on my images using STAEDTLER karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.

I used Ranger Distress Inks - Fired Brick for the red images and Memento - Jet Black for the black images.  I also used the Visual Artistry The Journey and Stampers Anonymous Classics 1.

Have a lovely Saturday!
