Tim Holtz - 12 tags of 2013 - April

Hi everyone,

Thought I'd do something a bit different at the weekend and do a tag for the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 challenge. For those of you that haven't seen it, Tim Holtz does a tutorial each month and you can enter your version of the tag. Here is Tim's for April:

Here is my interpretation:

I used peeled paint, walnut stain and faded jeans distress inks for the background. I didn't have a dragonfly stamp so I went for a bird instead. I did try to stamp it onto acetate but the ink wasn't drying so I didn't think it was going to work. As it turned out it had dried by the next day but I was too impatient to wait! I will have to use that on something else instead. I therefore stamped it on some paper that I think came from a box of chocolates or something - I quite like the bit of sparkle in it. The other things were just from my stash.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out as it's very different to the things that I normally make.

Thanks for looking.
