Time for the latest in the 12 tags of 2016 – a mix of Layered Words and Watercolor Resist. I had a hard time deciding which stamp to use for this one but I finally chose the bunch of roses from the Lady Rose set. Pulled out my distress pens and watercolor pen/brush and away I went. I wound up stamping twice having used a lighter color for the initial stamping and then a darker color after the watercolor dried. I decided I wanted the whole thing to look a little more vintage and so I hand-stitched the watercolor to the tag and used several strands of DMC thread. Even using the Tim Holtz ruler it’s still a bit hard to get the lines exactly straight but it is far better than me eyeballing it!
I hope you are having a lovely summer. So happy that the new releases have been announced – I can’t wait for them to arrive and see what projects are in store over the next several months!
