It's time for the September 2014 Tag over at Tim Holtz.com. Here's a look at Tim's tag and it is stunning. Such an interesting technique with alcohol inks this month.
Fall is just about here and the Fall colors are always so gorgeous.
You know, every girl needs a new dress for the Fall. To make the dress, I used a stamp from the Visual Artistry Stampers Anonymous Seamless Experience stamp collection.
Then, I got wild with alcohol inks and the Autumn Gatherings decorative strip. Wow, that was fun. I followed Tim's steps carefully since using the Alcohol Ink Cardstock was new for me.
Here's a pic of my background for the tag before the stamping and leaves. I used the Measured THS012 stencil and citrus alcohol ink. I used several pieces of the alcohol ink cardstock trying to find a good color. I remember Tim said to use a light color but I didn't have the lake mist he was featuring.
Then the image was stamped. The leaves were made and layered from the bottom up so each layer could have a little "fluff" and curling of the edges.
In making the leaves, all I could think about were the vibrant colors of Fall, using the oranges, yellows, reds of alcohol inks worked great. Love, love the colors. The Copper Mixatives gave the palette a big boost.
A few extra leaves were attached to the hanger in case they were needed.
It could get windy!!
There you have it, the September Tag 2014 - A New Fall Dress.
