Greetings and happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all our service men & women for everything!
I created my May tag very early in the month, but I never got around to blogging about it. I also almost missed the cutoff to post on Tim's blog! Yikes! You can see Tim's tutorial on his blog here, where he posts a new tag on the first of every month! Every month people ... this man's a machine! An extraordinarily talented machine. This is Tim's tag:
The technique was to put down some tissue tape, and stamp a focal image. Then, color the tag, add some embossing tape, more stamping, and flowers. Tim used his Tiny Tattered Florals die/tool, but instead of using that, I created some flowers using some batting (of all things), and some Distress Spray Stains. They came out too stinkin' cute!
I added some leaves cut from muslin and inked with Distress Inks. I couldn't resist adding some small pearls to the centers.
Here's a close up of the flowers. Adorbs.
I added a little stamping to the top left corner with one of Tim's new background stamps.
This shot shoes the gold embossing paste. I also added a saying from Tim's Small Talk, and cut it apart.
Only two days until June's tag! Can't wait!
