12 Tags of 2015- April Tag

Hi Everyone,

I have had such fun making this month's tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 Challenge.

Something about paint splatter, something about stamping, something about sewing all seemed to call to me and I found myself happily tag making for a good portion of the day.

So on with the show. This are Tim's tags for April:


See, even Tim had to make more than one!!!

And here is mine:


Of course I didn't not have a single thing that Tim used in this month's challenge (I never do) but I love the ability to compromise and go with what I've got. Here I used a flower set from Stamping' Up. And I did not have any distress markers so I used regular  water colours.
I just love how it turned out. 



The dies I used were We R Memory Keepers Album Made Easy Text Dies.


And just look at that zig-zag stitching! I just love sewing on paper. It's my thing!!

So I made another:

 And another one:


Here is a close-up:




Then I started on a different flower. Here it is in pink:



Here it is in blue:


This one is not quite finished yet. I want to stamp a greeting and personalise this one a bit more before it goes out.

And here it is in red:


I really could go on all day. I do have to break out my "Time to Florish" stamp sets and get to work making cards and tags using this cherished technique. 

All I can say is thanks Tim!!
