Tim Holtz- Twelve tags of 2014- August

This month Tim wanted us to follow our own muse....but what I love about doing the 12 tags is things I discover through following Tim's I did both. First following Tim's lead I came up with this tag (I must say I do love the Ranger Texture paste!) and then some close ups for you, should you be interested. (I got this close up before I added the key.) Then I followed my muse a bit and came up with this card using the Tim Holtz Chevron embossing folter, the cracks and specks stamp set,and the Tim Holtz Layered butterfly.The butterfly is done in Spiced Marmalade, Gathered twigs and black soot distress inks and then covered in rock candy crackle paint. The sentiment is from the Simple saying stamp set. Okay then I was not finished following my muse because after making that butterfly my muse carried on and created this next project for the Inspiration Emporium Everything goes Challenge First I got myself a nice pile of butterflies cut and embossed then I painted the butterflies this time using Tim Holtz distress re-inkers (in Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Peacock feathers, faded Jeans, and Seedless preserves)I put some ink down on my craft mat, and when you are done.... You will then start to add black to the butterflies On the previous card I just inked the butterfly direct from the ink pad but for this project I really wanted a more solid dark line that did not go into my painted areas so I did this all by hand painting. Then I painted my canvas board Then I added some ink to the board and flicked some water about also. Then you will forget to take pictures if you are like me LOL but you will stencil and stamp and add more ink and flick more water, and stamp more and grab your Tim Holtz Distress marker spritzer and spritz, then you will finally paint and then add a word band and this is what I had when I finished- a rainbow of butterflies and then finally I will add in some closeups of the butterflies on the canvas. I thank you for taking a peek if you did! Have an inky day...or night :D
