I had a lot of fun creating this month’s Tim Holtz tag – I like its theme and colors. I view creating his monthly tags like getting a kit from which I learn new techniques, with the safety net of the design and colors already thought out. I’m not sure why I didn’t make one in January – I need to go back and make that one as well!
One of this month’s techniques was smudging. This technique was shown in the Online Card Classes Chemistry 102 class, but I didn’t have much luck with it at the time. I had more success with it this time – smudging produces a subtle effect.
The tag on the left is the first generation and the one on the right is second generation. I smudged the stamped images on both tags. The images, from the Bird Feather set, are stamped with Distress Inks. The top part of the tag was misted with Distress markers using the new Tim Holtz Spritzer tool. This is an easy way to add misting, with or without a stencil to a project.
