May 2016 Tim Tag

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!
