Now this is a first for me, I've never got round to joining in with Tim's 12 tags challenge before, but I saw the tag for June and thought I would strike while the iron is hot (so to speak!).
I've acquired only 3 of the Distress Paints so my colour palette is some what limited at the moment, but I quite like the result I've achieved.
To create the effect on the tag I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint, Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and Wild Honey Distress Stains.
Tim used the dragonfly from the Classics 1 set but I really love the pear image. It's been stamped onto water colour paper and then painted with Distress Markers. I've also flicked some watered down ink from the Distress Markers but I had to use an ordinary paint brush, I couldn't get my water brush to flick ! I've ripped the edges and blended more DI to give the true distressed look !
I stamped the tag using 2 stamps from the Classics 3 set and as you can see at the bottom, one of the diamonds didn't stamp all that well but I rather liked it as it added to the distressed look.
I dyed some seam binding using some Ripe Persimmon Distress Stains and added an Ideaology Philosophy tag.
I'm entering this tag into the Tim Holtz 12 tags for 2013 - June challenge.
I hope you all have a lovely week end and if you're in the UK I hope you take the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine !
