Tim's June Tag of 2014

Hope you all are having a wonderful day! Before I start with my June Tag, I would like to thank you all for the comforting words concerning the passing of my brother and my needing a little time away from blogging. While the painters were here and finishing up on Saturday, I did actually start my Tim tag and with all the activity going on, my mind was kept quite busy. The house looks pretty nice and that was a great distraction, although three days with plastic on the windows was so weird! Anyway, I do thank you and am getting back slowly and have missed visiting all your lovely blogs.
Now onto Tim's tag for June and what great fun I had working with background. I actually worked with a few different stencils, because once I started, I wanted to keep going! For this tag, I started with watercolor paper and followed Tim's instructions for the background.
My collection of supplies and various backgrounds! The Eye Chart stencil was also inked with Black Soot. It really was such a relief to get inky!
I do not have the framelits, so after coloring and stamping were fussy cut and placed on top of the second set I stamped on the watercolor paper. My butterflies were colored with the same background colors.
The wings were left unglued for extra dimension!  And speaking of wings, the newest challenge at A VINTAGE JOURNEY is "Wings & Things." so stop on over and join in with your Tim inspiration! "Anything Goes" is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday, so off we flutter to there.
I decided my pretty little butterflies needed to be placed on one of those jumbo tags, so out came another stencil and I inked through it again using the same color palette. After all the inking was done, I lightly stamped the background using Watering Can.
The bow was next and as I always say, "I am bow incompetent," but carried on! The second piece was cut at 18 inches, so not quite as fluffy. Black paint was added to the word band.
I wanted a rusted look on the pen nib, and experimented with first pressing in to Black Archival Ink, then sprinkling Vintage Photo glitter over it with another layer of clear embossing powder. I like the look!

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my blog and leave a comment. Wishing you a wonderful week!

So lovely to see you back and with such a knockout take on the June tag - I absolutely love the two layers - so cool with the text in the background - and the butterflies look fabulous.

Glad to hear work is going well on the house, and that you've been able to find some time for yourself at the craft desk in the midst of these difficult days.

Thinking of you with love,
