August has come and gone and I didn't manage to get my August Tim Tag done on time, but I managed to get my August tag done today. This month's tag features the Brayered Stain and Frameworks Techniques. For August's tag, I switched it up a little bit from what Tim Holtz did. This tag is by far one of my favourites from this year.
For the floral silhouette in the middle of my tag, I used two of the flower dies out of the Wildflower set and cut them out of black Core'dinations. Once the wildflowers were cut out, I layered them on top of each other.
For the bottom of the tag, I took a sentiment off the small talk set and cut it apart. The other element I added, was part of a film strip rubon. To finish the film strip rubon, I added a small mirror star that I coloured using Mushroom Adirondack Alcohol Ink.
In the top right hand corner of the tag, I used the rest of the film strip rubon. Overtop of the film strip, I added a metal key and coloured it with Mushroom Adirondack ink.
To finish the tag, I added twine ribbon to the top of the tag. I added some speckles using my Distress Spritzer with Black Soot and Ground Espresso Distress Markers.
