You can imagine the downpour! How cool is that? You can see how bright the sunshine is against the white walls of the houses and how black the rain clouds are - and not one but two beautiful rainbows. Definitely worth the rain!!!
This months tag technique was smudge stamping and let me tell you before you watch the video I made a few mistakes!!!! I couldn't seem to do right for doing wrong!!! First I didn't have the lovely stamps Tim used so I struggled choosing suitable ones from my collection and it took me a few goes until I got a composition I liked. The technique involved making a second generation stamped image and I kept forgetting and automatically reinked my stamp on several occasions……..then I didn't read Tim's tutorial correctly and I thought he only smudged the second generation images……wrong and then I made a mistake and smudged the first generation of stamping and got cross as I had to redo the tag and when I edited the video I realised that I didn't need to redo the tag I should have just carried on smudging!!!!!! What a palaver! It did make me chuckle though so I didn't cut it all out of the video so I hope it makes you chuckle too!!!
I got there in the end as you can see…..
I think I got there in the end!!!! I really enjoyed turning my tags into luggage labels using Kraft Glassine to make faux leather. Instead of putting strips of tissue tape to adorn my tags the way Tim did I decided to make rosettes with the tissue tape and my new Custom Fasteners made the perfect flower centres as you can see……..
I really hope you like the tutorial and that your weather brings you rainbows as spectacular at the ones we had yesterday. Don't forget to pop over to see what all the other tag artists got up to this month over at 12 Tags of 2014. After you have watched the video of course!!! ;-)
Have a great week and thank you for popping by X
