Tags of 2014 -- July

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share the tag I made that was inspired by Tim Holtz's July tag. He used a sea theme and I decided it was time for me to get out some of my sea crafting supplies and work with them too! You can see Tim's demo here. I enjoyed embossing the piece of plastic to place over the Distress ink background for a different look.

I added sand and small seashell Mudd Puddles to the bottom. The large seashells are dies that I added Clear Rock Candy Distress glitter to. The clam shell was punched and given to me by my good friend. I love the patterned paper it was punched from!

I used Diamond Glaze on the angel fish. As usual I had a fun time making this tag. Tim always gives much inspiration each month! 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
