Tim's 12 tags of 2013 - June...

I love my Distress Markers and I love seeing what people are doing with them. Tim Holtz has a series he does that is called 12 tags of 2013. As usual, he has an excellent post this month. It is filled with great techniques for using his distress markers. He even uses distress inks and stains. Tim always has loads of details and photos to make recreating his techniques amazingly simple. It you'd like to see him work his magic click here.

 After seeing Tim's post I decided it's time I got busy myself. I had a wonderful time lost in the world of creating. Between checking the directions on Tim's blog, trying the techniques and starting over a few times using different stamps, I lost track of time.

I followed along but used different colors and stamps. The Butterfly stamp I used is available in the CMS146 Mini Blueprints 2 set. The quote is from Tim's CMS mini classics 062 and the quotes on the background of my tag are from various Tim Holtz stamp sets. All of his stamps are from Stampers Anonymous.

I did dress my finished tag up a little. I added some Idea-logy pieces and used some Distress Paints on the ARTFUL token and the spinner, the chain tassel is attached with a brad and the ribbon is altered with distress paints and stains. I've seen these techniques on Tim's blog before and enjoyed trying them out. The hardest thing was waiting for the paint to dry on the metal.
