As this is the second post today, please scroll down to the previous post if you want to know this month's BRAND NEW CHALLENGE theme over at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges!
The April tag really gave me some hard times... Distress paints and I will definitely never become best friends - that's for sure ....even though I really love that marbelizing and in the end I managed at least to create one tag that did not go to the bin instantly...
Well, I made the resolution to do all 12 tags of 2013 and I will stick to it!
I also have no alpha parts or "clearly for art" to stamp on, so I used some acetate from packaging material, which I fixed to the tag with some Tim Holtz tissue tape.
Ageing the clock face with Distress paints went quite well... but I will have to practice a lot until I find the results satisfying.
The stamps I used (due to the lack of that lovely dragonfly stamp) are once more mainly from the fabulous new "Time Travelers" stamp set (which I also used for this 3D pop up card)! I LOVE IT! In the end my tag turned out very, VERY different to Tim's April tag... but I enter it anyway...
"The most important thing is not to win but to take part!" (De Coubertin) ;)
For a finish I coloured some of the areas within the images white to add some contrast and depth. Done.
I enter SSSS's "very strict challenge" and Out of a hat creation's "Faces" challenge with this tag.
Thank you for stopping by!!!
