For my Katzelkraft DT project I've made a tag using some of the Tim Holtz techniques that were covered in the Creative Chemistry 101 classes.
I started with the background and blended lots of different Distress Inks, colours I used were Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany, Pumice Stone and Seedless Preserve. Then I did the 'spritz and flick' technique. The flowers were stamped with black Archival ink and then I watercoloured the image with Distress Inks and re-inkers using one of the fab watercolour brushes. For the label I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique and then stamped the sentiment with black Archival ink.
I cut the butterfly from watercolour paper using the TH Mini Butterfly die and then used the Brushless Watercolour technique to stamp the butterfly onto the die cut. The lovely ruffled ribbon is from Linda's Zibbet Boutique and I've rubbed Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet DI over it. The ribbon at the top of the tag is seam binding, which is also from Linda's Zibbet Boutique, that I've dyed with Tattered Rose DI.
I'm entering this tag into the Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tim Holtz technique challenge.
The stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzelkraft in France.
