You know I love making tags and I follow the Tim Holtz monthly tags he makes. Here I have used one of the backgrounds I made when making my Tim tag for February. The details of how to do it are clearly set out here on his blog
With the ephemera piece and colours I had used it had to be nautically themed and ships and sailors came to mind.
I randomly stamped the compass from Tim’s mini blueprints 3 set and smudged over a small amount of gesso to blend them into the background.
I gathered up some pieces that I thought might go together and set about altering and designing. (You will see I didn't use them all and added others in as I was putting the tag together).
The ship is stamped from the Travel Ways set in blue archival ink and I used a black pen to highlight some of the lines.
I made a custom fastener using a snippet of distress ink card and remnant rubs ......
..... and I added it to the photo booth picture of a sailor.
The expedition tag was swiped over with aged mahogany distress paint which was then wiped off again using my finger to leave the red writing ....
.... and I daubed a little of the paint on the star and again wiped it off to give a slight red translucent effect.
Some tissue tape and another ephemera piece finish it off.
Thanks for taking a look today.
See you again soon.
