My first tag is sheer indulgence on my part. I finally got my hands on Tim's Time Travelers stamp set and I just wanted to play with it. Since Tim's theme this month was travel, I made a Time Traveling tag. Check out the link above to see Tim's tutorial for this month's techniques.
I used Pumice Stone and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink for the background on both tags. I really like the combination. I also colored both with Distress Markers and a water brush. For this tag, I toned down the black archival ink of the balloon stamped image by going over the lines with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker. I like the effect. The tag tie is made out of Grungeboard. The slide was colored with black, brown and gold alcohol inks for a rusty feel. I edged the tag with Walnut Stain. Here are some pictures of my Time Traveler Tag:
Thanks for "traveling" with me and my Tim Holtz 2013 tags this month. Hope you enjoyed your trip :) -- Mary Elizabeth
