You’ll have to excuse me…………….. I’m working backwards.
After my last post and not having played along with Tim’s 12 Tags before I’ve caught the bug.
This one stretched me a little and I embraced my mucky (from my cards you can tell I’m usually into the clean and simple look).
I followed 12 Tags 2016- March Instructions as I went along. So, here is is my March Tag for Tim’s 12 Tags of 2016.
I haven’t used just Butterflies in mine. As it was Easter in March this year I was inspired my Easter Bunnies.
I don’t have every item that Tim has used so I adapted and used some of the things I had.
This is what I used.
Tim Holtz Alterations Bunny die (this is the one with the Butterfly)
Tim Holtz Alterations Bunny die – Movers & Shapers
Tim Holtz Alterations Butterfly – Movers & Shapers
Tim Holtz Alterations Mixed Media Thinlits dies
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Spellbinders Label die (sorry don’t know what it is)
Hero Arts Timeless Stamp (this is from a 3 set stamp set which includes Cherish and Embrace)
Clear Embossing Powder
Black Memento Ink
Black, White and Gold Folk Art (acrylic paint)
Not forgetting Pearlescent Pearls spray
I won’t go into too much detail as you can follow Tim’s instructions.
I started with corrugated packaging and cut out my Bunny and Butterfly, tore some of the top layer of packaging and decorated. At this point I also cut my smaller Bunny and decorated as the top layer. For my bright element I used linen look card and again followed Tim’s instructions and once I’d played I finished with a spray of Pearlescent Pearls.
I just love the splatter effect … I don’t have Tim’s splatter brush so used a hard brush (I think it’s a glue brush)
I’ve been busy so the next one is already done and dusted………
I will be following soon with February so watch this space.
Many thanks for popping by.
