Gettin' Inky

Hey there everyone.  Today i'm sharing my take on the Tim Holtz inspired May tag.  I grabbed all of these goodies from The Scrapbooking Studio came home and got busy!

I used the #8 manila tag and of course some of the new uber fabulous remnant rubs. I cut little bits of the rubs apart and placed them around the tag. I was thinking that if I tried to place the sheet down and just rub parts I would have all of the rubs on the tag!

After all of the inking, staining, rubbing & stamping here is how my take turned out.

The color of distress stains I used were broken china, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade & peacock feathers.

I distressed the outside of the tag and when I was done with everything used Walnut distress ink around the out side.

I'm totally loving the new compass coins...the game spinners fit oh so perfect!

On the word charm I used spiced marmalade paint over the wording.  The seam binding soaked up all of the left over stains when I was done with my tag so that none went to waste!  The stamp sets I used were Words For Thought & Air Travel.
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This came great! His techniques are fantastic.

  2. Love your colour combo - might have to give it a try myself; I'm still learning what ones work well together (and what ones' don't lol). Your tag looks great!
