As you can see I have left it until the last minute to post my tag again this month! I did hope to get my hands on the lovely seahorse die that Tim Holtz used for his tag but no luck so once again lots of improvisation for my tag but I really like how it turned out….hope you do too!!!
I printed my seahorse from an image on the Internet and had every intention of following Tim's tutorial on colouring and crackling my sea creature but when I saw the black and white image against my tag suddenly a whole new colour scheme sprang into my head.
I used my Distress Inks to colour my seahorse and my shells….can you spot the two lovely Rubber Dance shell stamps I used?!!!!! They were perfect teamed with the two starfish which I also sourced from the Internet.
I will post the video tomorrow when you will see all the things I didn't have and how that led me from Tim's inspiration over at 12 Tags of 2014 to my interpretation this month. I had loads of fun creating this and I hope you pop by again tomorrow to check out that video.
Here is a close up of the beach area of my tag. That netting once contained six onions!!!!
Well I don't have long to wait for next month's tag that is for sure! I wonder how close Tim leaves the creation of his tag each month to the publishing deadline?!!! If you love tags make sure you pop along to 12 Tags of 2014 to check out all the lovely creations that have been made this month.
If you like me love those shell stamps then pop along to rubberdance.com. These two shell stamps come from the Beach Sentiments set.
Until tomorrow……thank you for popping by X
PS Here is the tutorial……better late than never x
