Travel Tag

 From    Tim Holtz’s Blog    August 03 2013.

Thought I would give this tag a try.  
What caught my eye was the use of two brown tone ink colors that I thought would never work out as they both are pretty dark.
He used Pumice Stone and Frayed Burlap Distress Stains, which I don’t have as of yet.

So I used Distress Inks in place, and was surprised
at the soft color that came from these two together.

I did not have the masking stuff that Tim used
so I went with the trusted old Post It Notes


After playing with the inks and adding colors to the tag, thought I would cut up the second tag to make flowers from the Tattered Pinecone die. Well I’m pretty pleased with my self, as I have never been pleased with anything I have done with this die before. Good lesson learn (Stick With It).
Stamp credits, Tim Holtz, Hero Arts, Crafty Secrets and Fiskars.
Thanks for your time today, have a cool week-end.
I would like to enter this tag in the August Monthly Challenge: My Summer Vacation
