12 Tags of 2013 - April

Hey bloggers,
April is coming to an end and I must get my tag for this month posted. Rather than making a tag I did a couple of six or six cards. Be sure and go over to Tim Holtz's blog and check out the master at work. There's a ton of inspiration there. I was playing with the new distressed paints. Warning this post is photo heavy. I have a lot of the in process shots for you.
These are the papers after the first application of paint and ink.

I stamped and inked some tissue for the focal piece.

I then covered the tissue with clear acrylic.

 After the initial drag through the ink and paint, I covered the entire surface of the card 
with Distress ink.

Then comes more water to get all the great texture.

I used Distress markers to accent some of the stamped images.

The Distress Paints and Vintage Patinas

Added the embellishments

I used clear film over a stamped image and popped it up. 

Distressed the edges and more embellisment

Hope you enjoyed my creative tour. Thanks for stopping by.
