Today I have my Tims tag to share with you - tim's tag February combines two wonderful techniques - monoprint and embossed textured paste. I'm so glad he's doing this as its great to be reminded of techniques done but sadly misplaced in the old grey matter! Here's tims beauty:
Not really feeling the Valentines theme this year so i went for one of adventure and a handsome sailor!!! Lol - you can't blame a girl can you?
I had lots of fun with this tag and enjoyed making the monoprint which you can vaguely see in the background - I used the bubble layering stencil for this.
The words were done with the embossing technique - I have to confess to being a bit quick on the uptake so landed up with embossing powder around my words as well as on them - nevermind - i don't think the sailor does!
A closer look and you can see I've also used some tape and some rubs.
I must say i do like this one - probably more so than the original which is a rare thing - Its all a matter of colours I think really - love the blues I used - salty ocean, peacock feathers, blueprint sketch.
I would like to enter this into timholtz 12-tags-of-2016-february
Big hugs to you and have a great day!

Great tag Rachel. One of these years I will get the chance to join in with the tags challenge.ReplyDelete
Great take on the challenge. I have a thing for sailors so this on has my attention. The blues was a perfect color choice and I think the spattering of misplaced embossing powder has a sea-spray effect. Creative Blessings!ReplyDelete
