Tim's Tags of 2015-September

Hello again

It's almost the end of the month already, and here I am, sliding in under the deadline for Tim's September tag. I had to make a few substitutions from his supplies list, but I had so much fun improvising (again!).



Tim's got a great tutorial on how to make this textural tag, so be sure to pay him a visit! Isn't this gorgeous?

TAG-MAIN

Changes from Tim's tutorial:  Perspective stamp,  Ranger Transparent Matte Texture Paste and Ranger Clear embossing powder, Mermaid, Sail Boat Blue, Snowcap and Silver Mixative alcohol inks, and Crinkle ribbon dyed with Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Hickory Smoke Distress markers. I also used alcohol inks on the  Frosted butterfly body and on part of the wing that overhangs and added Salty Ocean Distress paint to my word band. Update:  oops!  Looks like I forgot the marker spritzer! I think I'll leave it just as it is!

Here are a few close up shots to zoom in on that funky texture and color--love this technique, and will move gloss Transparent texture paste to the top of my wish list. Frosted is a blast to work with, and a must have for any crafter.

  

 And a few last peeks...this little guy was hard to photograph!






I wish to enter this into the following challenges:
Eclectic Ellapu Purple Team Use Your Stash Which is 6 Months or Older--Alcohol ink paper, alcohol inks, brads and Crinkle ribbon all over 6 months old.
Thank you so much for visiting today and for all your lovely comments! Hugs and Blessings!

So excited!

The butterfly fluttered straight into my heart... to borrow someone's word above, it is indeed ethereal. :o) The background is gorgeous and the entire design is masterfully done. What a treat to see your newest creation, my talented friend. Thank you for ending my day with a smile. :o) (See?!)

  14. Oh, Sara Emily! This tag is ethereal in its beauty! I like it even BETTER than Tim's tag. You captured the feeling of a delicate butterfly floating off into the blue October sky. It's magnificent in it's simplicity....even though I know there are a lot of techniques tucked into that marvelous tag. I super love this!!!!!

  17. Sara that is wonderful and so beautiful. Love, love, love the colour of the piece and now there are two of those dimensional pastes on my wish list too, lol, along with the frosted film which I had never heard of until Tim's tag. I have a lot of the alcohol inks and it was good to play with them properly for the first time, lol, and mine must be seven or eight years old, lol, so they will be coming out again soon.
    I just received that stamp set, got a great deal on it, and looking forward to playing with it but you definitely should have been a winner this time, the blue is just gorgeous gorgeousness!
    I missed a few steps because I had nothing like the supplies he has and just ran out of time this month. Hoping to get the next one created sooner as I've just had an idea because I've not got those Bigz dies so keep your fingers crossed for me that I can do it. Have an awesome weekend hun xx
