August Tag of 2012


Hi Everyone! I want to show you the tag I made for Tim Holtz's August tag challenge. You can see his demo here. I really enjoyed making this tag and the flowers. Flowers are one of my favorite embellishments. I used aqua acrylic paint on the embossed areas. My TIP is this -- I dyed seam binding using Distress inks for my ribbons. This way you can have ribbon colors to match your project. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
