Thought it was about time I got Tim's tag done for November, can't believe how fast this month is going. The only reason I didn't start it sooner was because I knew that I did not have the stamps he used, so I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with alternatives.
I do enjoy doing these tags because it challenges me and I unashamedly keep to his recipe as much as possible and then go off and use the techniques on other projects, but in my own style. It is just the way I learn best. Anyway, here is what I created this month:
As I say, I did everything according to Tim's recipe, except the wheat stamp of Tims was replaced by a stamp from my stash (which I cannot identify) but I thought it looked a bit like wheat. The words (celebrate with thanks) are by WaltzingMouse stamps (Say it Loud set). We don't traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK but we do have Harvest Festival, which some do celebrate and give thanks, hence my wording.
I did have a moment of panic when my little travel iron started smoking as I was doing the resist technique but I was brave and just carried on! I love the end result and the way it still resists inks even when the embossing has been removed. Definitely going to do this technique again. The burlap was gifted to me by a lovely blog friend May, some time ago, I am using it sparingly because I don't want it to run out!
If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I do love to read them all and I will do my best to return the compliment (if I can find you). Crafty hugs, Anne xx
