2014tags

Here's the tag I created
- closely based on Tim's one this month.


The trellis effect background is a Sizzix / Alterations
Bigz die called 'Lattice' - I didn't have the exact one
Tim used, but this was close enough.
I didn't have any Distress Paint so instead used what
I had but it didn't produce the mottled effect when
splashed with water - also I would have liked a 
stronger colour to stand out more -
any more complaints?  - just saying!

 
I actually really love this die cut - lattice
and am sure I'll be using it again and again


I did have the Sizzix / Alterations Bigz die
needed to make the dried tea roses
'Tattered Pinecone'
I found the roses quite fiddly to do, but
kept with it and I think they have turned out nicely.


This is one of my favourite tags so far
and I think I'll mount it onto a card for
my Mum's birthday later this month.


Wonder what'll be in store for us next month...!

Thanks for looking :)

I wouldn't have the patience to make the roses but they are glorious. I really like the muted colours on this tag too. Luvverly!
