Joy Faith Hope

Hi and welcome to my blog! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I want to show you a tag I made following a few of Tim Holtz's techniques. You can see them by clicking here. For the tree I used an embossing folder, brayered flesh colored acrylic ink over the raised areas, and applied Tim Holtz Walnut stain over the top. I wiped off the excess stain and the paint acted as a resist. I tore around the knot in the tree and added it to the tag.

I used one of the butterfly dies from Tim Holtz's Butterfly Duo dies. I did not have the grout so I used some white matte embossing paste on the butterfly. I then glued on the paper mosaic pieces and used Diamond Glaze over them so that they would look like tiles. I then sponged Gathered Twigs Distress ink in the "grout" spaces. Here is a close up of the butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
