Tims tags March

Good morning all! This is a scheduled post as I'm off to my sale this morning - I'm not expecting to do very well - I never do at this one but I thought I would give it one last try! Fingers crossed though!

I'd like to share my Tims tag for March with you - this tag really was a make do tag for me - I certainly did embrace imperfection - I had ordered a few things already with my tims tag money and there was nothing left in the pot - so I really had to think hard to try to use as many of the techniques as I could this month. Like Tim I started out making two tags - the lighter and the darker - but the lighter one got messed up along the way and I didn't have enough stuff to finish it - so I am only sharing one tag.

Here is Tims:

You can find his instructions here.

Here's my tag:



I followed as many of Tims techniques as I was able to. I did the smudge stamping and kept to a nature theme - but in places I had to use rub ons rather than stamps. Also I used the mask but do not have the distress marker spritzer so I used distress in the regular fashion then misted water on top and blotted after about a minute - it did give a faded look to the weathered wood distress ink that I used  but it certainly wasn't entirely the effect I had hoped for! Still I'm embracing my imperfections! Lol!

I hope you have a great day today and thanks for dropping by - I'll catch up with you all later!

Hugs

Rachel xx

  2. Good morning Rachel,
    Absolutely brilliant "tag" love everything about it.
    Hope your Sale went well. Know the feeling, my sister Hazel and I have given up standing about at them. We have made lots of money for the Chemo Unit where Hazel had her treatment. There are so many of these Craft Sales we feel many people are not coming to them now. We have decided to donate what we would have spent on the things we would have made plus the Table Fee.
    Hugs
