Tags of 2013- June

Hi friends,
Just in the nick of time, I bring you June's tag.
Here's T!m's for inspiration:

Here's my tag:
 I was very inspired by all the patriotic projects he's posted lately. I hadn't used these patriotic images so I thought it was the perfect chance to get them inky.

Here's a closer peek at it:
 I used the image of Lady Liberty & colored her with a mixture of Shabby Shutters & Broken China Distress Markers to create the look of oxidized patina. I also added Pumice Stone DM for shadows. I colored the little stars & painted them with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

 The bottom half of the tag:  I colored the flag with Faded Jeans & Barn Door DM. I fussy cut the USA image so I could use it as an embellishment. I wrapped some red, white, & blue twine around the letter U & the rest of the twine just fell into place on it's own. I really liked where it all landed so I carefully added a bit of Glossy Accents to hold it down.

For the background, I used a combo of Barn Door Distress Stain, Picket Fence Distress Paint, & Faded Jeans Distress Ink- and they all played nicely together like in T!m's tute.

I had so much fun making this tag & it has turned out to be one of my fave tags yet! *Ü*

Thanks so much for peeking today!

  1. This tag is great! It maintains the spirit of Tim's but with your special touches is perfect for the celebration. Now if I only had those stamps...

  2. I am so in love with your tag. I have attempted to purchase those stamps and they are sold out everywhere. I really do love the way you designed your tag.

  3. Love everything about your tag--the images, stars, twine, fussy cut letters, and, most of all, your fabulous coloring.

  4. Great tag! Love the letters at the bottom and your background is fabulous. Awesome way to celebrate the 4th with TH tag. -- Mary Elizabeth
