Tim's 12 Tags-April

Ok, confession time again.  I haven't bought any Distress Paints.  Everyone tells me how great they are, but I honestly can't see my way to buying in more paints.  I have a lot of paints already.  So my reproduction of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 is another exercise in substitution.

I followed Tim's technique using paints I already have - the metallic paint is from Eco-green.  It worked pretty well - although, of course, the colours are different. 
What else?  Well, the numbers and gears are die-cut from card, the dragonfly stamp is from the Stamp Man (the blueprint in the background is a Tim Holtz one from the Steampunk set), there's a bit of tissue tape on there...

Anyway, it's April and I've kept up so far!  Will I make it to the end of the year?  Tune in next month to find out!

Ta-ta for now!

The fun is the taking part, I am sure that Tim must be aware that we cannot buy everything, however much we may want to. You have done a wonderful job with what you did have, I love your tag. Hugs, Anne x
