November Tim tag

The penultimate Tim tag for 2014, I can’t believe where the year has gone and to think it’s December tomorrow.
It was great fun looking for a different embossing folder and die for this make as I don’t have the layered leaf that Tim used and although I have the insects and the snowflake I wanted to experiment with other things in my supplies.
P1190392
So I have gone for the French theme with the Eiffel Tower and a fleur de lys mover and shaper.
P1190373
I have more or less followed Tim’s process steps but I added some foil sheet both to the embossed tower, fleur de lys and the corrugated card using a splatter stamp for the sticky embossing powder.
P1190376
I also stamped on the corrugated card first which adds a little more interest.
P1190367
I used some tarnished brass distress paint on the word band and arrow.
I am so pleased I have managed to fit this in before the deadline and am linking to Tim’s post.
P1190391
Thanks Tim for another inspirational tag, looking forward to see what you share tomorrow.

I absolutely adore this version Brenda!!! In fact it's one of my favourites - love that verdigris look to the Tower which contrasts so beautifully with the altered corrugated card. (phew, we made it!) Jenny xxx
