Hey everyone! I am back today to share with you the April tag I created as part of Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of 2015. You can see my other tags here. I will back Saturday with March’s tag and Sunday with February’s and then I will be all caught up and ready for Junes!
If you have been following my blog lately you may have noticed I am a bit obsessed with watercoloring 😉 – so I was really excited to create this tag!
It was a lot of fun to watercolor with the Distress Markers. I appreciated Tim’s way of watercoloring, concentrating the color on the outer edges and gradually working your way in. I loved the clever way of cutting the slits on the kraft tag to slip the watercoloring in as well. I wish I diecutted the word “life” a bit more to the right, its a bit close to the edge- but oh well! I didn’t have any of his script font words so I used Lawn Fawn’s scripty love die instead.
It was really cool making our own ombre crinkle ribbon 🙂
Remember Tim Holtz gives awesome step by step directions with a photo tutorial- easy to play along!
GORGEOUS watercoloring! SWOON!
