tim's tags of 2013 - January

Evening all! Well its been another full day - managed to do mine and my mums shopping and go to an exercise class - Penny's hair has been put right too - as the photos below show:

Not sure why the second one has come up in black and white - but you get the idea - I think she looks very cute and cheeky and is totally forgiven - we had a few tears though as I'm sure you can imagine!

Onto today - I've decided to join in with Tim's tags this year - and here's Tims then mine:

I've enjoyed doing this - used a couture embossing folder and DI scattered straw, wild honey, faded jeans and walnut stain. Also Distress stain antique paper. I've used momento metallic inks to colour the cogs that I cut with spellbinders dies into grunge paper - the words are William Blake and the stamp from clarity. The brad and watch charm were from my lovely mum for christmas - I think the charm is creative expressions. The hand is paperartsy.

  9. Gorgeous tag, very steampunk, it's growing on me slowly.Penny does look cute, and it wont take long to grow.

  10. Love her hair cut - she's just as cute as can be! Her short hair fits her and lets the curls show more. Great tag too and a fantastic take on Tim's version.

  11. Hi Rachel, Penny looks like a gorgeous little angel with her short hair and I bet she feels better for it too. I love your take on Tim's tag, it is amazing. I too have the same embossing folder and die that you do and not the ones he used. I was a bit worried about doing mine but you have inspired me to get a move on with it! Hugs, Anne x
