This is another technique Tim Holtz taught in a class I took in April using his new Oxide Distress Inks. We used the technique in the monthly Technique Tags Tim Holtz Style Class at The Craft Shack.
After I was happy with the stencils & Oxide inks, I used another tag I had inked with Worn Lipstick & Wilted Violet Oxide Inks & spritzed with water. Then I stamped the sentiment from Tim's Just Thoughts with black Archival Ink, tore & inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Ink. The swirls are from Tim's Sketch Elements stamp set stamped with Archival ink too. The other embellishments are crinkle ribbon inked with Wilted Violet & Worn Lipstick Oxide Inks, a Muse Token "Lifetime" hung on a loop pins, a nailhead, & a clock from Tim's Custom Fasteners & 3 butterflies from Botanical Remnant Rubs.
TIP - This was a very easy technique but it's hard to see the flower pattern in the center. I think I may have used more of a grinding motion instead of tapping & twisting when I applied the micro-glaze so it may have gotten under the stencil.
Hope you enjoyed my tag & TFL!
