The TH Sand and Sea Die inspired me to create several projects. Because I have the larger die, I used a large tag for my original 12 Tags of 2014 Entry (See it HERE). I was so amazed with the Sand Technique that I created an Art Journal Page HERE. For this Tag I used a standard size tag but I had to improvise and cut the dies down. You can see a full tutorial HERE. The Seahorse uses Distress Paints and Crackle Paint; The background was created using Distress Inks and the “wave” background was created using the TH Regal Flourishes Embossing Folder and a Window Sheet.
It was a little tricky to cut everything down. I just tried to follow the lines and I think it turned out pretty well.
When I added the faux sand to the tag, I mixed it and applied it and then added another light layer of the Embossing Powder to give it a more powdery look.
