June Tag


 June tag time on Tim Hotlz blog..........................

I am trying my hand at this again. I did have to substitute the Distress Paint because sadly I do not own any yet! Boo Hoo...............

I will.......I swear I will, just not quite yet.
I hear and read that they are AWESOME!

It is not even a skip or a hop to anywhere close that I could get them.
It is a very longggggggg.......... car ride to get supplies for me.

It was never like that before, this is very hard for me. UGH!
I know cry me a river........I live in the Rocky Mountains, what more could I ask for?

Oh I don't know, maybe a scrapbook store?

Anyway you came to see my tag.

I did the same tag as Tim, but changed a few things (wings).
Do you see my wings?

I stamped the dragonfly onto a piece of film from a package.
 I wanted these wings to be very thin. 
Turned them over and colored them with the Distress Markers!
 Here they are against the paper. I wish you could see them in person they are beautiful!
I added a little Perfect Pearls to get a little sparkle.
 
I tried to take some different angles so that you could see the wings.
They are so thin. They are realistic looking with the Perfect Pearls on them.
They have just a bit of glimmer.
You can see a bit of the glimmer of the Perfect Pearls in this picture
Wings!
The whole tag!
 I also added thin jute and wrapped around the top of the white watercolor paper
and added some crinkled ribbon to my tag.
Of course it was not done without me distressing the sides and bottom of the tag.
 
Hope you liked my tag for June! I loved creating it!

Gorgeous -- the distress markers look fabulous on the plastic packaging wings. Really love the background (looks incredible without the distress paint -- but wishing you a scrapbook store soon) Congrats on the win!
