12 Tags of 2015 - March


 Tim's beautiful tag is above.
If you click on the pic it should take you to
his blog where he shows and describes how he made it. 

As usual I didn't have many of the products used,
so made do with what I had

I did have plenty of different tissue tape,
but only three colours of Distress Paint.

For the next stage I didn't have the texture paste
so used a Golden product 'Coarse Pumice Gel',
but unfortunately that didn't work well at all and
at this stage I was ready to throw the tag away!

However, I scraped the gel off and quite liked
what was left - a shadowy stencilled effect.

I finished it off with a sari ribbon branch
and some scruffy machine stitching around the edge.

Not forgetting the little fragment -
coloured with alcohol inks - FLY stamped on a
piece of white copy paper and glued on underneath
with Glossy Accents.
(The bird is from 'Artful Flight CMS069' from
Stampers Anonymous.)

I'm glad I didn't throw it away now.

Thanks for looking :)

Love all the different shades of mauve/lilac. And the stitched branch is brilliant. I prefer it to Tim's!

Your tag is beautiful, Sherry. It may be different to Tim's, but in my eyes that is good. It shows more creativity.
Thank you for all your comments - so encouraging and always appreciated. Jx
