Twelve Tags of 2013 "April"

Wow where has the year gone! I can't believe it is April already! I am excited though because tat means fun things are coming, like boating, vacation, grilling out and of course buying some new Tim Holtz stamps, stains, and dies! 
I had so much fun working on this Tag and I used. Ton of product! Rather than listing each one separate I decided to take a picture of everything I used! 

I will do a brief rundown of how I achieved the look I got! I used a #8 black craft tag painted on gesso then sprayed while wet with Rangers Dylusions ink spray then sprayed with water then swiped it through the colors as well then using heat tool dried it as it curled it left a really cool texture. Then using Distress stains I sprayed card with water and swiped them through the different colors and dried with heat tool! I then tore off the Traveled section from the Tim Holtz ideology terminology tissue and using the matte medium I applied to card. The colors saturated through! Then I allowed to dry and went over it and some of the trinkets with brushed pewter rusty hinge and broken china. I took a piece of the butterfly tissue tape and attached to bottom of tag. I then used water color pencils and brush to color in the butterflies in varying colors. I stapled a piece of the film strip ribbon on top of the 3d dragonfly I cut from Graphic 45 paper. And had brushed over with the pewter. I used a Piece of Mica and cut out shape of dragonfly and used alcohol inks then attached trinkets with tiny stapler  and glue. I ran the ribbon through the distress stain and heated. I went around edge with brushed pewter distress stain!
