Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - March and Orange Jalfrezi Verdict


I'm playing along with Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2014.  This month it's all about smudge stamping and second generation stamping.  And using an airbrush which I haven't got, so I substituted that for sponging through a stencil.  The idea is that you stamp the image on one tag, huff on the stamp and stamp onto the second tag, getting a lighter image, then take a clean sponge to them to blur the images.  All went well until I added the wording stamp on the left-hand side of the tag as an afterthought.  By that time, I'd been moving the tags around, and stamped them the wrong way, so the first generation tag has the paler wording stamp, and the second generation tag has the stronger wording.  Oh, well.

Here is Tim's pair of tags:-


And the verdict on the previously untried orange and jalfrezi milk chocolate - fabulous!!  I won't be asking or my money back!

  1. Glad that chocolate was so good, Shirley ... order more! What fab tags, such a great technique with the generational stamping! I like that you got them 'mixed up' ... the eye is drawn slightly differently on each now! Anita :)

  2. I like both tags. I agree that each tag has its own personality. More interesting that way.

  5. I never would have noticed the difference in the ink had you not mentioned it! The tags look FABULOUS just the way they are! Beyond funky and cool! I'm quite sure Tim would be nodding his head in agreement with me!!!

    Sounds like quite a bit of fun work, but so well worth the effort!

  7. Lovely tags. I like that the wording is stronger on the 2nd generation tag - I think it adds an interesting element to it.
