Tims Tags 2013: April

Good morning all! Well I finally got around to making my tag for April - but I really struggled with this one - no distress paints have made their way into my shopping basket just yet - hopefully next month!!!! So as you can imagine I well and truely struggled - but I did have fun - making use of the acrylic paints I already own and the stamp that Tim used that was also already mine - enjoyed using the studio 490 film to 3D the dragonfly too!

Here's Tims Tag:

In all of its gorgeous ness - and here's mine - not quite so gorgeous!!!! But fun nonetheless!

The shimmer that the bottom picture is picking up is treasure gold - don't have distress paint metallics either so I have improvised again with what I did have!

I'd like to enter my tag into the challenge!

Hope you have a fabulous Saturday - I'm taking Penny to help set up the guide camp ready for the coming season tomorrow - Lucy doesn't want to come so she's staying at home with daddy - I'm sure they'll have fun! No plans for Sunday as yet! Gardening club went well with the children at school yesterday - we managed to get strawberries planted and also radishes, peas, carrots and potatoes - lots of jobs well done I think!!!!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Big Hugs
