I love this technique of tag, specially making the sand texture at the bottom of the tag. It is really great inspiration by using the clear UTEE, Distress Embossing Powder, Distress Glitter and Glossy Accents
As I haven't brought the new sea horse die, I use the Tim Holtz Sea Horse Blue Print Rubble Stamp to make one. I use the watercolor card stock and stamp for six layers (actually I use only 3 layers for the finish product). I stick them together to create the "Chipboard". I colored it with Distress Marker and also using the crackle paint to make the texture. It still looks great. Right?
The time consuming part is cutting the sea horse by using scissor.
I use the similar method for making the die cut "chipboard" of the Sea Stars and the fish. But, this time, I use the Distress Paint and put the distress embossing powder on it which similar to Tim's advised. Without the bubbles embossing folder, I use the Sizzix Dots background to replace. It still matches with the whole theme.
It really great inspiration of this tag and match with the hot Summer Holiday for me.
