12 Tags of 2015 - May

Don't be shocked!!! I finished my May tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2015, way way early!!! Why? Because I was so in LOVE with his! I loved all the different techniques, all the layers, the stitching, the flowers, and all the embellishments! He just kept going and adding, and as you know, that is right up my alley. The more the merrier I say...and I just LOVE this tag, and had the best time making it while on the road last week.
I followed all of Tim's directions, with the a few differences shown below.
Dirty stencil I know, but that's how I roll! I LOVE this new stencil, and thought it perfect for the polka dots in the ladies shirt.
I inked the dots with Ranger's Festive Berries Distress Ink, and outlined and smudged in with Gathered Twigs Distress Marker.
Black Soot made the perfect silvery charcoal gray colored ribbon.
LOVE the new Mini Tattered Florals, and love them using newsprint. Although, they are not very sturdy with the newsprint, and got crushed on the trip home, but they fluffed up pretty good.
 
 
 
 
I love all the entries so far, and can't wait to see more! This is my new favorite tag of Tim's...;0)!!!

Supplies:

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
