Tim Holtz Tag - July & May
This month's Tim Holtz tag features a homage to the 4th July Independence Day celebrations. I did not have suitable stamps but here in the UK this past week we have had our own national celebration when Andy Murray won the Wimbledon Tennis Championship.
I used Tim's brayer technique for the BG with barn door and faded jeans DIs spritzed with water. I love the effect and mopped up the extra ink with some scrap card. The Union Flag is stamped with an Artemio 2 -step stamp in Adirondack denim and red pepper. The BG text is by PA (it's actually French) and I used a Kaisercraft washi stamp for the stripes. The image and text are computer generated and the number 1 is chipboard covered with some of the extra scrap card. I did try to recreate the crackle effect but my Viva Croco crackle has dried up ): !
So next step is to try and catch up with my May tag.
Edited to add: I have caught up with the May tag so I thought it would be best to include it here.
