12 Tags of 2015 - April

Hello and welcome! Today I'm sharing my project inspired by this month's tag by Tim Holtz. Love the watercolor technique that Tim used. I tend to be a perfectionist so coloring outside of the lines usually makes me a little crazy. Well I just let it go and embraced the idea. I've got to do this more often! Thanks for stopping by!

Due Date

Hello and welcome! There's a new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog called Due Date. These words made me think of a new baby and a design idea that I've had rolling around in my head. I began by stamping one of the birds from the Bird Crazy stamp set on a #5 manila tag. I colored the bird with distress inks using a piece of mini ink blending foam. I used the same technique to apply mermaid lagoon distress ink to the background. For the egg I used a die cut oval shape from my stash that I painted and inked. To finish I added a little grass, a bow and one of the new typed tokens. I think the look on this birds face gives you an idea of the day that he's had! Thanks for stopping by!
