Another challenge and another use of a photo of my in-laws taken at Jones Beach, Long Island, NY back in 1934. Today's tag was created for the CCC3 #12 challenge...Distress Photo Tinting which can be found on p. 41 of the book. Sponsoring this challenge is FunkieJunkie and a $25 gift certificate is at stake. The Curiosity Crew will also be choosing a winner for a special prize from Tim & Mario. There are some easy and basic rules to follow, so go check them out and play along!
Here's my finished tag. I really hated to cover up the base tag but it was actually the inspiration so what are you going to do????
I did curl the waves to create motion. Once die cut from watercolor paper, the sand dollar and greenery were sprayed with distress inks in yellow, light brown and a green then heavily misted.
Ingredients: #8 tag of unknown background origin; Sizzix Holiday Greens (brand new..doesn't that look super for seaweed???), Mini Sand Dollar, Wave (old yellow die); Stampers Anonymous Purely Random CSS27843 (love text); paper scrap for wave from old Stampington magazine insert; distress inks, distress markers; Botanical Remnant Rubons; unknown turquoise gem (came in a goody bag received with a previous order from The Funkie Junkie Boutique); Idea-ology bird covered in distress paint; watercolor paper; glossy paper
And here's the tag base unadorned...love the turquoise and gold splashed on it. Sure reminded me of water which made me want to use this photo again!
