OK! the Jubilee celebrations are over for another 10 years so I hope everyone has some lovely memories to keep them going.
I had planned to do some planting out of pots & baskets but the rain yesterday was torrential at times so put it off until today....and had myself some fun time in the workroom. I had ideas that had been buzzing around in my head for a couple of nights (interfering with my sleep!!!) and I have been playing with Tim's June tag ideas....but as usual I did not have many of the bits I needed so I improvised A LOT!
I used China White watercolour paint & brown ink for my base tag as I've no distress stains, no "rose" ribbon so came up with options, no Ranger pen/nibs so another solution was pre-tinted photo or Promarker, no file tab but an off cut of card+ some silver pigment ink & embossing powder did a not bad job- all I had to do was add a number & an epoxy sticker. My ribbons got swiped through the same paint as I used for the base tag and the paper layer under the photo was a paper bag I got on my first trip to Boston (Mass) when I went to visit my granddaughter for the very first time 9 years ago- if you keep things long enough....it WILL come in useful!
this is the tag using Promarkers to tint the photo which worked quite well, the twill REMEMBER ribbon & heart buttons are stash from the USA as is the small metal "friendship" tag. I am entering this one in Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012- June
In this version the photo is printed onto gloss photographic paper & was already tinted so all I have done is add stamped numbers down the side and Vintage Photo ink around the young lady with some Walnut ink on the edges, again the INSPIRE, flower, ribbon & leaves came from my stash.
And as you will have noticed...I remembered to rotate this photo! I am still learning......Hope you don't get dizzy looking at this sideways :-)
