Tim's tag for June

Under the wire or what??? Just managed to squeeze a bit of time last night to get this tag done while Ken was up the driving range and having a golf lesson - phew.

I've had to improvise quite a bit for this tag, I don't have the blending pad so I use distress inks colours directly onto the stencil and went from there. It's a different effect but I rather like it and it's not too dissimilar. The colours I used were victorian velvet, iced spruce, evergreen bough and the new hickory smoke.

I do have some of the coffee cup die-cuts that Trace sent me but I have already used them this week (see coffee lovers card here) so I decided to use my unused tarnished trophies die and create a tarnished patina effect using distressed products. (I think I feel a tutorial coming on, but I just didn't have time last night).

The pieces I gathered together to add to the tag.

I wanted to keep some of the details quite similar so I added hessian but used remnant rubs ....

.. the pin and coin in the ribbon is almost the same .....

...l but the trophy and ephemera is very different with a hand made price tag lol.

I am so pleased I managed to fit this in before the end of the month, I shall of course be linking to Tim's June tag link up.

Thanks again for stopping by, it's a very busy week here on Bumblebees and Butterflies so I shall see you again wednesday, thursday and friday.

take care.
