Tag 2 for The Grand Finale!

Posted on


I enjoyed making my first tag for The Grand Finale, over at Linda Ledbetter’s blog so much I made a second! A huge thank you goes to Linda and the DT for the Challenges and inspiration, I have had fun joining in And learned a lot.
I used Tim Holtz Layered Stencil Monoprint technique. You need to read the instructions in his book, CC3.
There are fabulous prizes from Tim and Mario and The Funkie Junkie Boutique.


I used DI with an Andy Skinner stencil I have just bought that fitted my travel theme. I used watercolour paper this time to get a patchy effect. I used the stencil as a template to outline some of the letters and numbers.


Hickory Smoke DI made a great edge, love how that colour compliments the other new colours this year. I used a Prima compass stamp and a Tim corner stamp to enhance the Travel work and make it pop.
A drop shadow folder links the two tags but this time I used tracing paper and made it into a belly band. I can add tickets when it is in place in my Destinations Folio.

Hope you like Tag2

  1. Jan, this is truly colorful, beautiful tag! Great job of using the monoprint technique on this! I really love the Hickory Smoke around the edges of your tag. It still allows the colors to be brilliant but that Hickory Smoke seems to adds that lovely vintage appeal to the tag without toning down the bright colors too much. The lettering and the black outlines and black stamping finish off the tag beautifully. Thanks for sharing with all of us at CC3C and thank you for the lovely comments you’ve left on my blog. They are so welcomed and appreciated. <3 Candy
