This month's tag sees us returning to Distress markers and the waterbrush.  We did some of this in February, but it was nice to review.  One fun new thing I tried was using the waterbrush to splatter droplets of colour onto my watercolor paper.  I didn't want to stop!  :-)

Additional views:

The background was created by swiping Distress ink, stain, and paint onto my craft sheet, and spritzing it with water before swiping the tag through it.  I wound up with some nice muted tones, which I then stamped over.  However, the first time I tried it, I swiped my tag before I remembered to add water.  It wasn't quite the intended effect, but I now have a different background to use for a future project:  :-)

Well, I think that's it for this month!  (This project was actually completed last week; I'm out of town this week.)  But look for new posts as soon as July begins!

See you then!
