t!m's Tag for July!

Hey buds!!! Just wanted to share the tag I created for July! You can find t!m's version here. I had a blast with this one! My main ingredient is distress stains! I used Fired brick, broken china and the infamous white picket fence. I found this really fun and cool technique on the web, sorry I can't remember where. Prime your distress stain, then pounce it on your project and you get this so cool splatter effect!! You have to be careful though because if you pounce to hard the stain will! I got a little carried away and got a couple of spots on my wall:( When I learn how to remove it I will let ya know...hehe. So, on with the tag! I stamped the umbrella man with distress embossing ink then covered it with distressed black soot. I kind of like how some of him is missing(poor guy). You can see all the stamps I used are from t! his stamps:))) The little clip is from Basic Grey. I took some alcohol ink to color it a distressed look.
Well, thanks so much for peeking! Have a great weekend all!

Just thought I would give you a couple of places to you feel the NEED to waste time....haha...I know we don't have a lot of that these days. So, for the days that you just want to take a break...deviate from the norm.
The first site is more or less brain exercises.....the second one is just cool;)))
