Tags, tags and more tags!

I've finally found time to take, upload and sort photos of my tags for week 2 of Sir Tim of Holtz's Creative Chemistry 101 class. I've missed Day 6 completely, sadly, because I don't have any Distress Markers yet.. I *should* have had some this week but, with fabulous timing, QVC decided there was going to be a week's delay in shipping them. Grrrr. But I've done my tags for days 7-10. :)





Angled photo to try and show the shimmery sheen

I really enjoyed this class. So many fab ideas and techniques and even though I'd used some of the techniques before, seeing Tim demo them "live" on a video made it all make sense so much more. I'm thrilled to bits with my collection of "reference" tags.

I've also already put some of the techniques to use to make a tag for this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the challenge theme is... tags! Coincidence? I think not! ;)

So here's my tag:



I combined a couple of the techniques from this week's classes on this tag - the background is made using the Perfect Splatter Distress Technique from Day 9 and I stamped over it using black Archival. I die-cut the bird and cage from grungeboard and used first gold embossing powder and then an uneven smattering of Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder on the cage and used Tim's fabulous Shattered Stains Technique from Day 8 for a brightly-coloured, glossy bird. :)
