http://blog.inspirationemporium.com/?cat=18 is having a Go Fly a Kite challenge for a chance to win $50 in Emporium Dollars. I flew many a kite as a young girl and have fond memories of hot summer days in my backyard flying the highest of all kites and for the longest time. I had fun with this one....attaching tissue tape for the tail of the kite and making a spool out of two brads to wind the black string around that is in the little girl's hand. The ribbon has a brad in the center to make it appear as being the sun. I stamped on specialty paper and embossed it to make the kite then sprayed it with various ink sprays that I made with my re-inkers and perfect pearls. The background of the tag is sprayed with the re-inkers and perfect pearl sprays too. I then used walnut stain distress stain to blend the colors together. The "k" has been stained with broken china distress stain. This was a fun tag to make!

Timholtz.com I used what I had to try to make it look somewhat like the one he did on his blog http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2012-august/. It's fun to improvise.
http://studiol3.blogspot.co.uk) Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 18 which is from Tim Holtz's book. This is Whitewash stamping and is a cool technique. You will have to buy the book to learn how to do this technique out of respect to Tim.
