Tag Time for FSC

It's Sunday and another new challenge at FSC today and this time we are asking you to use a tag on your project.


I have made a little tag book and am so loving the rub-ons technique that Tim showed us on his blog last month, I have used that again for this project. I have used all Artistic Outpost stamps and will enter this into their June Referral Program.


Supplies -
Distress Stains - wild honey, pumice stone, antique linen, crushed olive, tarnished brass, rusty hinge
Distress inks - iced spruce, dried marigold, walnut stain,
Remnant Rubs - Tim Holtz - words, numbers, elements
Stamps - Artistic Outpost - Route 66, Diesel Punk



As the rub-ons resist the ink and leave some white on the card I have again used my white pen to highlight some areas on the stamped images to lift them and to balance the white areas on each page.


I didn't think this needed many embellishments, I think the stamps speak for themselves.





Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Doing anything nice? I shall be at the Craft Barn today for their Extravaganza weekend going to catch up with some friends. I will let you know who I saw when I get back.

Hi Brenda, I really love this little book and your use of color and placement, just really wonderful!

I wonder if you could tell me how you made the word Journey. My sister and I are trying to figure out if you punched or die cut them or what. Could you share with us your process. Those letters are neat. Thanks, Sharon

Chris Warner said...

Oh wow, stunning! Love this. Amazing that you got all this creativity into one simple tag folded in half - brilliant! Chris xxx

Brenda Brown said...
