As promised, here is my tag for March.
As you all know I am following Tim Holtz 2014 Monthly Tag challenge.
Here is my finished tag….I'm early, its not the 31st yet, teehee.
I thought I had a stamp set that was similar to the one that Tim Holtz used.
I searched for it and couldn't find it. Then I checked the catalogue of the company that I thought I had got it from, and they don't carry it.
So I must have dreamt it. I know I have some pretty creative dreams, but this is crazy, lol.
My tag took on a different look than Tim's, but I used the same techniques and love that it has such a pretty Spring look to it. Especially since we received more snow today.
Here is a closer look to the stamped image.
To give the image more colour, I used Distress markers and used them like water colour.
I love to use these markers for water colouring :)
I also used Tim's tree branch die to make it look like the nest is nestled in the tree ;)
I don't have Tim's spritzer (I think Stampin' Up sold it at one time), so I just used my sponge applicator to add the distress ink to the dot stencil.
I also cut the bottom part of the flower so I could tuck the branch under them. I wanted it to look like the nest is intwined on the branch. Just like a real bird nest.
And look, I have a bonus for you…a video on my finished tag and some of the process I did to get this look :)
