Hi everyone, isn't it a glorious day? I have been busy in the garden so have not been a good blogger for a while, but I love Tim's June tag and so enjoyed making it, that then I thought I would have a go at doing it my way so I offer up the two for your perusal! Here firstly is my colour and stamp edition:
I used all Tim's techniques, using Picked Raspberry Distress paint, Dusty Concord inkpad and Brushed Pewter stain for the background with the Papillon background stamp in archival. For the water-coloured image I chose a Paperbag Studio stamp which is one of my favourites and coloured it as his instructions with my water brush and Distress markers in matching colours. The ribbon at the top was stained to match and I found some co-ordinating beads to accent. I should like to also enter this for Hels challenge over at the Sunday stampers which is Purple Haze as it seemed to appropriate not to double up as the colour goes! Here next is the first tag I did in which I tried to copy Tim's as far as possible, never quite looks as good as the great mans' tho!
I love taking part in this challenge as you learn so much from him. I did his course 'Creative Chemistry' and learnt lots of techniques using the distress range but it's good to have a masterpiece to copy! I especially love the way you can use the inks, stains and paints to make the fabby background. Well I hope to be back a lot sooner than last time, have a good week everyone, thanks for looking. xx
