Butterfly Time


Greetings Dear Friends!  It is almost the end of April, so I finally am getting around to my April Tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013.  Tim's gorgeous tag can be seen here.  This month, Tim emphasized the use of Distress Paints and Metallic Distress Paint and creating a beautiful patina finish.  I have the fortune of having the Distress Paints to work with, including the Metallic ones, although the beauty of them was not captured in my photograph.  I really enjoyed creating a patina finish on the Idea-ology Metal pieces.  I only had a grunge board number "4" but I like how it came out.  Since I did not have the gorgeous butterfly stamp Tim used, I instead used this beauty of a stamp by Crafty Individuals.  I'm so glad I took the plunge this year to try these tags.  It is a wonderful way to learn and/or practice really cool techniques.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

I love the style of this tag - great colors and metallic look! I haven't made many tags yet, I find my creativity disappearing when sitting down to create something on such a small space, but I'm gathering inspiration from you and others out there in blogland, so I will try and give it a go soon...

Absolutely delicious take on the TH tag - the butterflies look beautiful against that background - so pretty! Sorry to have got so behind with visiting, but it's been lovely catching up!
