Howdy there crafters! Nothing like the last minute to post my tag for Tim's April tag for 12 Tags of 2015! I've been on the road solid for three weeks to teach, watch baseball tournaments, and golf tournaments. I think I've been home a total of four days after Easter...yikes...oh the laundry that is waiting for me!!! Anyway, I've found time to craft in the car and in hotel rooms, and managed to snag a sewing machine to finish my tag!
|I knew I wanted a red flower...of course...so I used the chrysanthemum stamp and took inspiration for coloring it from this picture on the internet.|
|I inked a Ranger #10 Manila tag with Aged Mahogany completely covering it. I LOVE how juicy the Mini Distress Inks are. LOVE!!!|
|Then I misted the tag with Tim's new Distress Sprayer only pressing the trigger slightly to get awesome droplets of water! LOVE this new tool!|
|Then came all the die cutting, and I added the Mini Heart from the Tiny Shapes set! So cute!!!|
|I used the new Fossilized Amber Distress Marker for part of the background...awesome butterscotchy color!!!|
|I added Gumdrops, but colored them with Mushroom Alcohol Ink first. I also stamped on the Crinkle Ribbon after coloring it using the same flower stamp.|
Phew...just in time! And...I have loved looking at everyone's April tag too. Fabulous inspiration abounds!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
