12 Tags of 2012 – June

Well, I think it’s safe to say I’m close to the wire this month.. In fact, there’s only four hours of June left here in the UK! Still, I’ve finally found time to compete my version of Tim’s 12 Tags of 2012.


My tag uses all the same things as Tim’s but mine is very, very different! I decided to go for a pop art/comic book style with this tag, using bright colours throughout.

I started out by cutting a Manila tag using Tim’s Tag and Bookplate die. I then followed Tim’s instructions to colour the tag using Picket Fence, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade distress stains.


I then stamped Tim’s Retro Circles stamp with Black Archival ink and pressed it randomly across the tag, using light pressure to ensure an uneven stamp.


I inked a photograph of myself and my baby daughter, following Tim’s instructions. I used Festive Berries, Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks.


I glued the photo to a piece of Ticket paper from one of Tim’s paper sets (It was a scrap so I’m not sure which it came from) I distressed the edges and then dipped them into a small puddle of Broken China Distress Stain.



I used the lightbulb Sticker from the File Tabs Idea-Ology and used a permanent marker to change the filament into a heart. I affixed it according to Tim’s instructions.



I colorised some of the remaining Idea-Ology pieces with Raspberry, Purple Twilight and Clover alcohol inks and affixed all onto the tag following Tim.






I coloured the Crinkle Ribbon with Fired Brick Distress Stain, and the flowers with Broken China and attached them as stated on Tim’s blog.




See you next time!
