Hello and welcome,
Here is a
Captains Tag I created a while ago
and have only now had the chance to post it.
I believe this fellow to be a Captain as in a full
photo of him he is carrying a sword.
I used a few inks, sprays, a stamp and rub on for the background. I also flicked water onto it.
Whats is that you may ask....stitching?????? Yes that's right I have taken my sewing machine out of the cupboard....yahoo!
I inked some seam binding with black, silver and browns for the top of the tag. Below you will see more seam binding in 5 different colours....these are his ribbons.
You have just got to love his mustache...how cool!! I also inked the metal clip with alcohol inks.
This is the back. I used grunge paper to die cut some numbers. I also used the Splatters stencil from Tim Holtz, gotta love the coffee stain. Once upon a time we would have jumped up and down if some-one had placed a coffee stain on our work. Now we love and welcome them. Too Funny.
Just a bit of crafty fun. I love the fact we can make something look so old from a plain piece of paper. Amazing!! Thanks to all the wonderful Tim Holtz products and some imagination.
One of the most valuable things I have learn't is to just go for it. Its ONLY a piece of paper and if it can't be saved it doesn't really matter. There have been times where I have thought ....that piece looks awful and then I've just added some stenciling or stamps and bought it back to life. Just have a go, get some ink on your fingers. Make a MESS.
If you find it hard to get you creativity going why not try Creative Chemistry 101 and 102. Tim's Compendium of Curiosities are REALLY great too. Now there are 3 volumes. Here is a link....http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/timholtz/class-info/
Have a great day!
