Encouraged by my latest win with Tim's "12 tags of 2013" and of course inspired by the awesome march tag he did, I decided to try a first take on the march tag although I hardly have any of the stuff Tim used on his...but improvising is one of the things I love (and luckily I own sufficient Tim Holtz stuff) and therefore I had great fun making this tag:
I wanted some Easter eggs to go with the grass and the flowers but the only egg-shaped stamps I have are three hotel labels from the Tim Holtz "Travel Labels" stamp sheet. I stamped them on soft blue, pink and green paper to match the main colour scheme of the tag.
For a finish I added idea-ology chit chat stickers and reinforcers.
The ribbon was blended with Distress ink "walnut stain" as it was too
bright. Edges of flowers and the tag were blended with "walnut stain"
I also used Stickles with the flowers and acrylic paints.
For blending the background I used Distress inks "peeled paint", "rusty hinge", "mustard seed" and "broken china".
Additional Distress inks used: "barn door", "shabby shutters", "walnut stain".
Hope you like my interpretation of the march tag (and the close ups too)!
