12 tags of 2013- June

Hi Everyone and welcome to my new followers........its great to have you join me here in my small corner of Blogland. 

As a new blogger, commencing March last year, I promised in January 2013 that I would not miss any of Tim's Tag's of 2013..............but life isn't like that and unfortunately I missed making/sharing a tag in May.................of course I can still make it and that is what is great about Tim's blog I can check out the 'How To'.

Below is my take on Tim's June tag. You can find Tim's own tag recipe by clicking on HERE. I stayed pretty close to the recipe, but put my own spin on the colours, SA stamps and finishing touches using TH products.

To watercolour I used Barn Door, Tumbled Glass, Frayed Burlap, Weathered Wood and Dried Marigold Distress marker's

I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink, Pickled Raspberry and Warm Honey Distress Stain on the background.

 In February's Tag, Tim showed us how to make ribbon using Tissue Tape, which you can see below.

 I distressed and tore the edges around the watercolour image and adage tickets

Thanks for dropping in and I hope you have a great week

Crafty Hugs as always xx
