Tags for Tuesday, April 3 at Stamp Antonio Arts

This week we will be experimenting with a couple new background techniques. The Grungy Butterfly uses Distress Stains and Paint Dabbers on Kraft Tags. I love, love the new Tim Holtz Butterfly on-the-edge die. I tried a little different idea on coloring the grunge paper using Paint Dabber and Distress Ink. Lots of inky fingers on this one!

The second tag is using the new Graphic 45 Paper, Olde Curiosity Shoppe. This paper is so cool and has a lot of different themes. Even flying pigs! The background (on a manila tag) is the Distress Crackle Paint Resist technique. If any of you have been taking the Tim Holtz online class, you might recognize this technique. Its very cool and I love how the stamps seem to be coming out from under the paint.

Hope you are able to join in the fun. The girlfriends always have a good time at Tuesday tags! Whether with me or Carolyn Cowling (who also teaches on opposite Tuesdays.)

We will also be doing our monthly tag swap after class. Even if you aren’t able to come to class or join in the tag swap, you are most welcome to come to Artist Day Out after our class. Lots of chatting, playing with some art and just having some girl time.
