I have a quick post to share with you. I love the crackle stained technique that Tim posted for his tag this month. And the brayer technique? So cool, I need to practice a wee bit more with it though, I didn't really get the droplet effect with the stains but it's still a great way to lay down color on the background. Check out the step by step here: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-july/
I used the specialty stamping paper for my tag because I wanted a true color read of the green.
Here are the colors I used on the tag: Gathered Twigs stain and ink, Walnut stain ink, Bundled Sage stain and ink, Broken China stain, Archival Jet Black ink, oh and I threw on some metallic stain for the base of the globe too.
And the "Simple Sayings" set for the label and words. I found this great washi tape at Michaels with globes on it. Cool.
Here you can see the great crackle effect with the Rock Candy crackle paint on chipboard and the SS paper. The frame around the compass is a gadget gear with the center cut out ( and being cheap, I saved the middle hole and used it on the top of the tag) hahaha.
Thanks for checking out my tag, have a great week. I will chat and share with you soon.
