12Tags of 2012- June

For June's tag I wanted to use a picture of someone I knew instead of the one Tim posted so I went through some of my grandma's photographs and found an extra copy of this one of her sister Edith. I  didn't have the nibs Tim used so I just used my distress markers and love how this technique turned out. I also didn't have the stains he used except for the picket fence, so for the back ground I used the white distress stain along with distress inks. I really enjoyed this technique of tinting photos, it really adds a neat effect.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my tag! I appreciate the comments very much!
