12 tags of 2012 July

I have surprised myself, I was determined not to leave July's tag until the last possible moment and whilst I am not the 1st to post I did not let myself down.

We don't celebrate the 4th July in England, but we are celebrating a lot this year including the Olympics starting at the end of the month so I decided that London 2012 would be a good theme. I am really pleased with the effect I achieved I hope you like it

I enjoyed playing with Alcohol inks they have not been out of the cupboard for a while. I tried both the air can and the blowing through a straw method and found that I had more control over the ink with the later method. Having said that the ink splats on the tag were achieved with the air can method, just because of the location of the ink splats on the paper. The stamps are from sets by Kanban and Papermania and the other embellishments came from my stash, except the guard ribbon which Mouse choose when we went to buy some buttons. I have a feeling it will make it's way into her tag as well.

Happy crafting


  1. What a lovely tag! It's sort of what I had in mind for this months tag. Fun thing is that now that the Olympics are coming the product line of papermania, including the stamps, have arrived in stores here aswell! I have the same stampset and the "mail" stampset with poststamps and cards and stuff and the small paperpad! My sister lives in the UK so I bought some of the line to make some UK style projects. I'll promiss not to use the same stamp on my Tag this month ;-) Greetz Dee
