Tim's Tag - April Flowers
Well I'm running out of time this month so I'm combining two challenges - A Vintage Journey where the theme is Spring Flowers and Tim's Tag for April 2014.
We were away at Easter visiting family and drove along the A17 in Lincolnshire with the sun shining. If you don't know the area then it's where the daffodil bulbs are grown - as far as you can see, fields and fields of daffodils in stripes of yellow, orange, cream narcissus, more yellow, more orange and a few tulips too. Such a glorious sight!!
So my design is based on Tim's Tag with a background of Snowcap Dabber, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks over homemade tissue tape. I've used Tim's Tattered Florals die with some free papers, inked the edges and made the flowers. For the foliage and trellis I've used Memory Box dies coloured with Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles and Vintage Photo Distress Inks, added some shiny and coloured bits etc and finished with seam binding and a word tag.
It's exceedingly yellow which is not normally me but I love bright flowers in the Spring. Thanks for visiting and for your comments - they are always very much appreciated!!
