I have many dear friends who share my love of stamping. However, we all suffer from the same 'condition'. We LOVE our stamping supplies so much - that either we don't use them - you know - we save them for that special occasion - OR even worse - we are so busy or distracted we have stopped creating. There are so many challenges, new products, exciting blogs for inspiration out there....it's time to get started creating. Enjoy the new year everyone!

OMG - It's April next week
Why is it that I cannot seem to get my tag done until the very last minute.... I thought being retired this would be a piece of cake. I guess I'm spending too much time outdoors :-)
Tim Holtz March Tag of 2014 challenged us to use a 'smudge' technique. It really makes a nice soft look to the stamped image. Check out his blog here: Tim's Blog. He gives you all the instructions.
Here are my tag entries for March:
The first tag is the primary stamping/smudging, the 2nd tag was the 2nd stamping with the same stamp, not re-inked, but 'huffed' on to get the most out of the ink. I used an old spritzer I had from many years ago - but looks amazingly similar to the one Ranger just released. I spritzed over Tim's Ruler Stencil. I followed Tim's process for the tag very closely - inking and splashing some water droplets on the tag. All in all - it was a fun process.
