Tim's Tag - March 2015

Here's my interpretation of Tim Holtz's Tag for March 2015 - if you have no idea what I am talking about then click HERE for full details.   As always I don't have many of the correct supplies but it's fun finding alternatives.

For the background I used Seedless Preserves Distress Paint and luckily I have Picket Fence so I mixed that with some Distress re-inkers - Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean.   I don't have the new Butterfly stamp but used the one from the Fairytale Frenzy set instead.  The good news is I had an alphabet stencil,  Grungepaste and embossing powder so that bit is OK - I did go for silver to match my background better and probably heated it too soon as it definitely bubbled etc.  Anyway it's just finished with the Found Objects plate, some painted gears and distressed seam binding.

As Tim says, Embrace Imperfection ....I think I've probably done that this  time and I definitely fancy having another go at the embossed texture paste.  Thanks for popping by and if you leave a comment, thanks once again!!
