Tim tag for March 2015

I love the mixed media feel to Tim's tag this month and especially the gold contrasted with the gorgeous paints, but I found the effects really difficult to achieve. My embossing powder stuck to the background as well as the texture paste no matter how long I heat dried it - I think I shall try it again but leave the tag to dry overnight.. 


So, as is me, I played around and decided to dry the embossing paste and then use an embossing pen to add the ink and the gold powder. This gave me a completely different look but one that I really quite like.


You can also see I added some gold EP to the dragonfly wings and some remnant tubs to finish it off.


Thanks Tim for another fabulous opportunity to try something different but also a peek into your very inspiring creative mind.


Have a great weekend everyone.

Your take on Tim's tag is absolutely stunning, Brenda! I love everything here - the great texture, the amazing dragonfly, the bow, the colors - it's all so well incorporated and I must say that I love your version more than the original one! Brilliant!
Have a wondeful weekend!

Gorgeous tag Brenda and love the effect you achieved with the embossing pen over the texture paste! I had the same problem with the powder sticking everywhere, Julie (Juliz Design Post) told me she used an anti-static bag over her tag before adding the powder and that it worked well for her. Love, love, love your colour palette!

Just the most beautiful March tag I've seen yet! It truly took my breath away when I first laid eyes on this beauty! Love your color choices, the dragonfly, and quite frankly, I like that you allowed the paste to dry and then added the ep. I thought about doing that, and even in one of my non-entries, I did this when I didn't like the color of the first ep I laid down. It's a very worn look, and I love it on your tag! Fabulous!
