Another cool tag today with a technique I've never tried. I love this alcohol ink plaid! It is just too cool. Again, I was missing quite a few of the elements Tim used, but I found some good workarounds. First, I don't have black alcohol ink. I was ok with that though, because I knew I wanted a lighter, kind of shabby chic look and black stripes would definitely be out of place. My plaid is more of a preppy plaid than a lumberjack plaid. :-)
The other things I didn't have were the washers and philosophy tag. For the washers, I used the same technique as I did on yesterday's flower, but I used silver and white embossing powders. The circle is a 1/2" punch from Stampin' Up. For the tag, I made it similar to the one I did here, but I added ep over the top to give it the same texture as the faux washers.
Finally, I added a stamped image from Oxford Impressions' Season of Giving collection, and finished my tag with the Drywall Stitching technique from the April/May '09 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter.
Again, I can't wait for tomorrow's tag - the first thing I do each morning is check out Tim's blog and see the new tag (ok, I also look to see if I won!). If you're following along too, please leave me a link to your blog so I can come and check out your tags!
