July Tag 2013
Hi everybody ! Wow, can you believe it's already July 11th ? Time is flying by. I finished my July Tag ... another fun tag. This month Tim used his tag to honor the 19 firemen who lost their lives fighting a fire in Prescott Arizona. http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-july/. As usual the tag was packed with many awesome techniques. I was so excited when I saw the tag because I knew I had all the supplies... well almost! I did not have the Old Glory Die that Tim used but I did have the Mini Old Glory Set.
The technique for the background looked so easy until I tried it, it took a couple of test attempts before I could get the right amount of ( or lack of) pressure on the brayer; but it's a real cool technique. I did not have those background stamps either but I went to my stash, I had the coolest 7 gypsies clear stamp set . It worked very well and since my flag was smaller I had an open space so I decided to use my mini patriotic blueprint stamp of the statue of liberty... perfect for my open space.
Oh and I DID NOT have salty ocean distress stain ... not to worry ( even though it kept playing over in my head that I did not have it)... I used my broken china it worked. Salty Ocean Distress Stain now on my shopping list... what can I say... I'm a Tim-a-holic!! Anyway I got past that issue. I like that I got to use some of my other Tim stash, the clips, the sentiment stamp , the rock candy crackle paint, and the tissue tape. You really must go look at Tim's tag... better yet why don't you just go ahead and do the tag... you'll have fun watching it manifest before your eyes! Using that crackle paint and then the distress stain over it is so cool to watch and the finished look is so amazing!
Thank you Tim for another fun tag. Do keep the 19 Fire fighter's families in your prayers as well as the others still out on the front lines. Try and stay cool ... it's 2:45 A.M. and it is 70 degrees... can you believe it? Oh well I'm tired enough to fall off to sleep, see you next month !
