Today for the first time I am submitting an entry to Tim's 12 tags. I have used many of his techniques in the past and followed the 12 tags, but never submitted an entry. So here goes. For this tag I used (as Tim demonstrated on his blog, in Creative Chemistry 102 and in Compendium of Curiosities III)- the smudge technique. I also used the new Distress Marker Spritzer and his honeycomb stencil for the backgorund. I wanted to include some color- it being March and with Spring fast approaching. Here are the two renditions of the tag- the first generation and the lighter second stamping using the huff technique. I plan to use the second one as a subtle background for a later tag.
A couple of close-ups of the original tag to see the colors:
