Tim’s September tag and more .....

Gosh I am right on the wire this month with my contribution to the September tags of 2013. All the details of how Tim made his tag can be found on his BLOG and I have used the same steps but made three projects - one just like Tim’s, one the same but with different colours, masks and stamps and my third a Halloween card and with it being almost October that seemed to fit nicely.

Tag 1
The same steps and supplies Tim used

Tag 2
Distress stains - salty ocean, crushed olive, tarnished brass, mustard seed and peeled paint.
Masks used – splatter, bubble, honeycomb, schoolhouse, dot fade, cargo and measured.
Stamps – Haberdashery set
Distress inks – walnut stain, crushed olive, salty ocean, vintage photo and black soot.

Halloween card
I enjoyed making this in the  same style, using the same techniques as on the tags and was pleased with the colour combination.
I used a leftover frame from my workshop project this week (a post for that soon) …..
and added embellishments from the stamp sets.
The 31 was cut out and covered with glossy accents to give it some shine and make it ‘pop’ more.
Distress stains – pumice stone, antiqued bronze, antique linen, picket fence, brushed corduroy
Masks – stripes, clockwork, eye chart, burlap, schoolhouse
Distress inks – weathered wood. iced spruce, victorian velvet, black soot, walnut stain
Stamps – mini halloween, mini halloween 2, curiosities

My favourite has to be the card I just love the colours and textures.

I hope your weekend went well and that you have a great week ahead. Cimmie is off to the vets tomorrow morning (see my last post for photos). He has been so good bless him, lets hope he can have that collar off and go out to play tomorrow.

Take care.

Well it looks as if you had great fun with this and the results are fabulous! Doing things three times over really makes you learn the techniques properly I'm sure. Great colours on the second one and I absolutely adore that Halloween piece!!!

This is an incredibly spooky piece!! Love all the details that you put into this. And what a great idea to turn the canvas over for the shadow box effect. Really perfect for this project!! -- Mary Elizabeth
