I could not believe my luck this month when Our master Tim unveiled his March Tag, I could have given him a great big hug (had he not been several hundred miles away!) why?, because I had just taken delivery of my new Distress Crayons and Mixed media2 dies so for once I had the main ingredients to get working on my tag straight away, CLICK HERE to see Mr Tim's tag with a step by step of the techniques. Tim's technique remix from previous tags continues and this month it is Dimensional Die Cuts/Textures. Here is my take.
The tag is made up of three layers, for once I have remembered to photograph the layers before I started colouring.
The distress crayons are lovely to use, they blend really easy and the colours stay vibrant.
The gold pattern on the top corrugated layer came from the speckled stencil used with an embossing pad, sticky EP and gold foil sheet as Tim shows in his step by step.
I was really pleased the way this worked out, cutting both layers with the mixed media stencil individually meant that they did not quite match up and I love the way you can see all 3 layers.
The metal flower foliage was given a coat of Vintage Photo distress embossing powder to 'Rust them up and 2 small pieces of burlap were place behind it. The flower disappeared into the background which I felt was a shame so I used the crayons and a little of the gold foil to bring it to life.
Originally I just had the Linen ribbon at the top of the tag, but wanted to bring out more of those beautiful colours. I dabbed 6 mini distress pads that matched the colours of the crayons onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and dipped the antique ribbon into it, really pleased with this bow.
Here is my tag taken from another angle.
I really enjoyed re-visiting these techniques and giving them a twist with the new products, I feel like I am learning all over again, and we all love learning something new don't we??
