Well I think I am getting the bug. I have already finished the April tag of 2015 or my interpretation of it. I must say that this time I was very inspired by all the techniques.
Obviously I didn't have a number of things that Sir Tim used on his tag so i improvised and interpreted and used what I had in my stash. For all the techniques you can hop over to His blog here.
For the main image I used a poppy stamp by IndigoBlu. I extended the stem to the bottom of the watercolour paper.
For the sentiment I used the dies from the seasonal collection. I built birthday from a combination of words : bright, wonderland and joy.
Again I didn't have die used on the kraft card so I die cut a poppy leaf to create a little opening.
My other cheat is the stitching. I can't sew to save my life so I went round the tag with the perforated ruler and printed the dots. Then I just joined them with a fine pen and I think it can fool you until you feel it.
So I hope you like my interpretation. I sure enjoyed the process, Theresa xx
