Tim’s tag for May

Oh my gosh, talk about cutting it fine again for getting my tag completed, but it’s just been manic this week after getting back off holiday last Friday and then we are off early in the morning to Ramsgate and Margate for a wedding and catching up with lots of family.
But here it is, my completed tag, true to Tim’s one, but a little bit me too.
I painted the muse token with picket fence distress paint and rubbed over the highlights with copper treasure gold (note to self get a black one).
I was really pleased the way the ShadowPress folder worked with the black archival ink, I thought it was going to go everywhere, but the raised areas are prominent enough to take the ink without it going over the rest of the plastic.
Love the butterfly over the frame, great idea. I used the Wallflower stash papers for all the elements except the butterfly which came from another Tim set, but this was a small left over piece I could use up.
Thanks Tim for another great tag this month and one I loved doing as I often work with small elements.
All the details can be found on Tim’s blog if you haven’t yet seen them but you only have till Saturday to enter so time to get your skates on and follow in my footsteps.

I had a great class with a group of lovely ladies on Wednesday and we played with (sorry I taught) Ranger Dylusions ink sprays all day, learning new techniques and finishing a double page spread in their new journals before they went home. Thanks for a great day Joan, Judith, Jane and Christine, I will try and blog some pictures next week, but I must go and pack for this early start in the morning.

Have a great weekend and I will be back on Sunday with a project for the new challenge at Country View Crafts. See you then. Oh and don't forget a new challenge also starts at A Vintage Journey tomorrow, the lovely Jenny will be hosting and what a great theme for the next fortnight, you'll love it.
