Tim’s tag for June #2 with frameworks die

When I made my June tag (#1 as it turned out to be), I had experimented with different types of paper and card with the gorgeous stencil technique that Tim showed us on his blog. I showed the different ones I had made on my post and I though they all looked fabulous, so today I decided to have another play with one of them and came up with this.
stencil monoprint frameworks dies
I wanted to to use completely different elements than the last one and I gathered a few things that I thought would go together including the background made on canvas textured acrylic paper and decided not to waste any of it and have used it on a long card, which I think will be perfect for a wedding anniversary (I have a special one in mind for later in the summer).

I’ve used one of Tim’s ‘Found Relatives’ cards and trimmed it to fit
P1170227
The flower is also made from bits left over on my desk and are coloured with Dylusions sprays which gives this wonderful bright luminosity to the card and blends beautifully with the distress inks on the background.....

..... and the remnant rubs work beautifully on both the film strip and the textured paper -  I used the ‘Botanical’ sheet for the words I wanted to use.
P1170229
The 1 and 0 are plastic clock numbers and given the altered surface treatment taught by Tim in Creative Chemistry 102 last year, plus I added a spray of  dirty martini dylusions ink spray to the mix …..

…. and the trellis framework was cut from left over watercolour paper coloured with Dylusions sprays and painted and sprayed card which gives the different effects with the frame itself and the inserts.

As the background was made specifically for Tim’s June tag I shall enter it to the collection of fabulous makes appearing at the end of his post. If you haven’t seen Tim’s tag yet you really should pop over and see the fabulous step by step tutorial he provides to show exactly how to do the technique.

Sorry I am still not around much, with the sun shining more often the garden beckons plus I have been prepping and preparing for workshops and I also had the grandchildren this weekend for a sleepover (as they love to call it), so all in all life is rather busy.  I hope this finds you all well and enjoying some crafty activities.

Have a great week.

I so love the upbeat feeling to this, it has a wonderful California feeling to it - I wish I could say I have visited there, but I haven't but I can certainly imagine the sound of the Beach Boys playing in the background.
Great colours.
Wishes
Lynne

WOUW Brenda so many stunning creations here lately again. I´ve just been scrolling around here and I just love your beautiful work. That photoframe and the panel with wings, and all your awesome tags too, (especially those with wings too he he) and then I just looked through an album you made earlier too, and I admit, I was totally stunned of the beauty in that one as well. You´re sooo talented, and it really irritates me, that no matter how offten I sign up to your blog, I just don´t get the updates,(it´s not just your blog, but a few more, it happens for) so I only pop in, when I just remember to go and take a look, but I sure love, what I see here, it´s truly amazing.
Have a wonderful time and lots of great fun and hopefully some nice summer weather too.

Ok ... I'm a bit jealous of your craft time this month :) I didn't get my June Tim tag made until July and here you have TWO!! This is amazing!!!! Such brilliant color on the canvas. Fabulous way to high light the black and white photo. Yep ... definitely will make an awesome anniversary card. The filmstrip is a genius way to bring the eye to the sentiment for this card. Love it to bits! -- Mary Elizabeth

This sure is vibrant and fun! Love the man's trunks, too... he's quite sporty, isn't he? A beautiful spin on this one.
