Not that I needed an excuse but after a 2.5 mile walk in freezing wind and hail I decided I needed some time in my lovely WARM craft room, so what better than my Tim Remix tag for this month.
As usual you can get all the details HERE.
As usual my tag is very different! I did try the little snippets of paper but I just couldn't cope with the haphazard nature and because I am ME needed something more regimented! So I decided to cut some papers with the Trellis Die and use the little pieces for my dimensional tiled effect.
I stuck my pieces on a piece of gessoed coaster board with a rough outline of the butterfly on it. But the hardest thing was actually making sure I used the die in the right place. So after a zillion measurements I put it through the Sissix and it came out just as I had wanted! Phew!
I used a woodgrain stamp and Distress Paint for my textured background and Victorian Velvet and Hickory Smoke Distress Stains and Inks. I just LOVE these two colours together.
My butterfly is only stuck at the side edge so I hope it stays put! but I like the fact that it looks as though it is flying off the tag.
I layered my finished piece onto a tag which had been spritzed with Hickory Smoke and then overstamped with the woodgrain stamp using the same ink.
Another two fabulous techniques which were really fun to revisit.
Thank you for joining me and I hope you have all had a great weekend and had lots more sunshine and warmer weather than we have here!
