June Tag

Hi All,

Just a quick post today to get in on the challenge over at Tim's blog.  This month we used a water color technique that was fun and fast.  It is a watercolor blending background where we put the Distress Ink on the back of a stencil, spritzed it with water and then put it on watercolor paper.  You can see Tim's tag and his tutorial here.  He used the star stencil but I wanted to go my own way, as usual, and went with hearts.

After the background was dry, I used some stamps from Tim's collections, stamped in black and embossed with clear.  I stamped the heart twice, cut them out and put the arrow in the center of the top heart.  I colored some Crinkle Ribbon as Tim did, added it to the top and I was good to go.
Have a wonderful and creative day,

  5. Awesome tag for June! Love the arrow in the paper heart.

  6. That's a stunning background, Sandy - and as Jenny says - the scribbly heart is perfect over those watercoloury hearts. Very cool take on the June tag!
