March tag of Tim's 12 tags of 2012

Well, I only had the sentiment for this tag...the new stuff from CHA has not landed in South Africa yet...

I am waiting in anticipation for the wood grain stamp, but in the mean time I made my own by finding a photo of wood on line and using my Teresa Collins stamp maker and making my own one.

Then I set about using the fanciful flight die for the butterfly.  I don't have the cement embossing powder so I used Peeled Paint instead to give the tag a bit more colour and repaced the bits of paper with Color Wash using my little paint brush and then put glossy accents on the top wings and Diamond Stickles in the bottom wings.

I really enjoyed the process of making this tag even though I did not stick to the actual brief as it were.

What I love about Tim's stuff is that he gives you the idea and what you do with it is up to you....I have some other projects in mind that would really suit this technique for Christmas time...see can't do these tags without thinking of Christmas, I am pre-programmed!
