An evening's play

I don't usually have a go at Tim's tags but the June one looked gorgeous and I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.  It looks so rusty!


This card is inspired by Tracy Evans over at Crafty Addicts.  As soon as I saw the 100 Proof Press stamp she used, I had to add it to my collection (and a few of their other stamps too! lol).  If you click on it to enlarge the image, you can just see I added some Treasure Gold to the corrugated card and the inner black mat.  The word stamps are by Kaisercraft.

The effect on this tag is lovely. I adore the rustiness of it and the kind of water-colour impression. Beautiful. Julie Ann xx

You're right about the tag, Carol - gorgeous - love that rusty look and I'm presuming it's done simply with inks? One day I'll go check out what he's doing... I think. Love the card, too and I too like 100 Proof Press stamps and have a few x

I love both but the rust effect on the tag is fantastic. It looks really metallic. Great results.

It's like you are speaking a foreign language to me when you describe these processes but I love the results of this one!

Stunning take on the June tag - the colours are simply gorgeous, and the watercolouring looks amazing. Great card too... Sorry to be behind - my internet's been playing up, so I'm sitting in Caffe Nero trying to do some catching up... have a great weekend!

Fabulous effect you have on the tag Carol, I totally agree! I've never heard of 100 Proof Press stamps but love what you've done with this one. Beautiful work as always.
