Tim's Tag for April 2015
Well it's the start of a new month and time for Tim Holtz's Tag for April - click on the link if you have no idea what I am talking about!
It's a beautiful tag but another difficult one for me. When you see the amount of stash I have 'stashed' about my house, you'd think I'd have more than a tag ..... but oh no!! And it's not a kraft tag either. But the whole reason I do the challenge is to challenge myself - if I haven't got it, use something else.
So to start I blended Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress to create a 'vintage' tag. For the flower I chose to use the large Rose from Oak House Studio and spritzed over that with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass Re-inker (I have no distress markers!!). The Rose is coloured with Pentel Brush Markers and a waterbrush and then spritzed with black ink (using a toothbrush and my finger!!).
Next problem was the wording. I die-cut the NOW out of the spritzed card and stuck it on and the BLOOM was some glitter stickers that I coloured with a black Sharpie. Close enough I think!! And after all that I didn't have the heart to unbury my sewing machine so just used a pen instead to create a frame and finished with some two-tone seam binding.
I'm not sure I enjoyed doing this one so much but it's part of the set and I've made it. Thanks for popping by to look and many thanks for leaving a comment.
