Tims Tag day 4 and 5 Neelz take

Well, Up bright and early so got cracking on tag 5 straight away!!!!! So I can post both tags.
Tag 4 first: I have to say that I struggled a bit with the technique. Perhaps it was because of the fact I had to use fragments, or my ink just seems to dry instataneously! In the end I used the stamped and glittered technique on the tag, it looked better!


This was the best of the first technique, I think it will work better on glass perhaps
Then Tag 5. Really nice tag but one thing is VERY clear to me; I NEED to get a FATHER CHRISTMAS stamp!!!!!!!!! I do not have one and they seem to pop up a lot! Oh well, I used a snowman instead.
I really enjoyed to enamelled effect on the numbers, though I had to use pearl paint and clear UTEE.
My distress powders tend to be dull colours so I had to adapt the colours to suit. again this was something I had not done before and enjoyed it.

Be blessed in your art today.

Love your tags - I had problems with the ink technique yesterday and discovered I just wasn't blotting for long enough.

My first attempt at the fragment stamping wasn't good, either!! Your tags are great.
