I think it was the mixing and matching of Distress Product as I wanted to use my Glitters that led to the tag you see before you. I didn't have the right colours of Distress Stain but did better with the Distress Paints (both in the gradually collecting process!!!) I know you are reading this and empathising with me ha ha ! Crafters are selective hoarders don't you agree ;-)
My Distress Glitter Collection so far comprises Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutters so that became the colour scheme for my tag! I glittered and Glossy Accented my butterflies fussy cut from the paper you also see before you. There is a texture paste resist in there somewhere! I think because I used Distress Paint it has blended in a bit!!!
Another new product I used was the Industrious Stickers. You can see my happy accident on this close up. Where I didn't quite line up my stickers back to back the sticky caught the Peacock Feathers Distress ink and I really like the result!!! I love the stickers I just wish there was more of them in the pack!!!!!
Here is my collection building up nicely one crafting month at a time. It is fun to look back and see all the techniques we have tried and what they inspired us to do. If you don't already play along with this monthly challenge and love to get messy with inks and paints then why not follow this link to Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 and join in the fun.
I have an online workshop available to show you how to make my tag storage and display unit. If you would like to make one you can purchase the video workshop and full photo instructions from my blog or my ETSY shop.
A video of how I got from Tim's Inspiration to my Interpretation is coming soon!!! A watched uploading video never uploads ;-) (new interpretation of old saying 'A watched kettle never boils!!!')
Finally after an aborted upload here is the promised video:
