I am running down to the wire as usual...:) I had the majority of my tag completed last week and then the daily grind of life got in the way.
I tried twice to achieve the "faded layers" effect that Tim so wonderfully demonstrated in his tutorial. My first problem is that I don't own any real "light" alcohol ink colors. My first attempt was with Latte and the Burlap stencil...not too bad, but I was not moved...so I set it aside for a later project. My second attempt was with Butterscotch and the bubble stencil...probably still too dark for the technique, but I loved the color and decided to go with it. If you squint you can see the faded bubbles in the center of the tag. I chose to use Tim's balloon stamp and various remnant rubs focusing on life's adventures. I made my two strips of alcohol ink color combinations and cut out birds by free hand. I used alcohol ink alone to create the smeared effect on the birds and then set them in flight in a rainbow pattern on my tag.
Thanks for stopping by.
