After doing a class with Tim Holtz earlier in the year and watching countless videos and stalking his blog over the years I thought I might put some of his techniques into practice!! So i pulled out my blending tool and a few distress inkpads and got creating!!! I used Spiced marmalade, Mowed lawn and salty ocean distress inks. I randomly blended them onto my tag, then found some shimmer spritz that I've had and not used for ages , sprayed that onto another piece of cardstock (cos i didn't want big blobs on my tag) and pressed this tag on top of it, so that i got the shimmer but the mess!! I then spritzed the tag with water so the colours could blend together!! I dried the tag with my heat gun, then put it aside and coloured one of my favourite Elisabeth Bell Digital images (which you can get from her Digital collection) - I Love You This Much! I coloured her in with tria markers and added some kindyglitz to the middle of the flowers and the dots on her jeans patch! Before I stuck her on to the tag I stamped a flourish on diagonal corners and the sentiment (which is from a stampendous stamp set). I finished it off with the rhinestones, then this morning I decided to add the shrinky dink butterflies cos I thought it was missing something!! I then just punched a whole in it and added the ribbon!!
For all things Elisabeth Bell why not head on over to her blog where you can find all her digital images and lots more magical things!! And of course there is always inspiration on the Digi Bell's blog so stop by there as well!!
