General Tag - Tim Holtz and Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

I have been on a tag frenzy lately and I have had so much fun, playing and experimenting.

So here's my latest one.

I used the Penelope Dee poppy stamp, along with lots of Tim Holtz goodies and stamps.

The background was made with distress paint, which I dabbed over the wood stencil. Then I rubbed over with distress stains and inks.
The paint resists the stains and inks and makes for a gorgeous layer.
Lastly I used my flower/swirl stamp and created another layer on the background.

The poppies were stamped and coloured with acrylic paint and a sponge.
Then I fussy cut them all.
They really pop off the background.

Anyways...thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!

  5. This is such a beautiful tag. I love poppies and the red is a lovely pop against the more neutral background of the tag. You nailed this one. One of my faves I think.
