Tim Tag April 2014

Thank you to my latest followers both on Google and on Bloglovin, I am thrilled to have you along on my blog adventure.    I am incredibly grateful too, to the people who have looked (and are still looking) and/or commented on my mini box HERE using Tim's new Wallflower papers.  I have made another one but I can't show you yet..........

Tim's tag this month has to be one of my favourites to date, I thoroughly enjoyed using all the techniques and it never ceases to amaze me that you can make a beautiful rose from a pinecone die!

You can see Tim's tag HERE and since I pretty much followed his instructions I am not going to go into too much detail on mine.


For my background I used different colours to Tim - Weathered Wood Distress Paint and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, using Tim's technique.  I don't have the fancy Trellis Framework die because I opted to buy the Honeycomb one instead and I love it!  I die cut and coloured my grunge paper one with Peacock Feathers DP and after sanding applied Gathered Twigs DI.  It gives such a wonderful timeworn look.


Here is a closer look at the top of the tag with the mirrored Idea-ology sheet filling in some of the spaces and others filled using the Menagerie paper pad.  I love the way the tissue tape still shows through the paint and ink in the background.  I used Idea-ology jute string in two different colours at the top.



The roses and leaves are cut from the Vintage Shabby paper stack, the roses are coloured with Broken China DI and Wild Honey DI and the leaves have been left uncoloured.  The ribbon is coloured with Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey DI's.  You can see more of the mirrored sheet here at the bottom.  I finished the tag with an Idea-ology tag (inspire) which was coloured with Broken China DP.

Thanks for looking, hope to see you again soon!  Hugs, Anne xx

  19. It made me think of a friends' garden Anne, she has a mirror on a wall and it is surrounded with climbers. At the bottom she has a delightful little pond. I love your tag. Xxx

  20. Great take on Tim's tag and lovely overall colour scheme. It's always good fun finding substitutions for stuff you don't have - I have to admit I'm tempted by that honeycomb one too! Elaine

  21. I think I am just going to get sick right here and now! Anne - I spent all one day trying to make those danged tea roses and do I have one to show for a day's work? NO! Plus the fact I thought they looked too big to go on the tag. Do I have that Die? NO! I love it too - it adds a lot of interest especially with the mirrored card stock. I like the die you used - I like it better than the fancy one. Wonderful tag Sugar !!

  29. Gorgeous, as always. That mirror insert into your honeycomb die looked so much like a 'real mirror' that I thought at first, you had used tiny bits of glass. Love this die and the way you've used the silvery-blue colors on this tag. Beautiful rose too. TFS & Hugs

  30. Anne,
    There is a real sense of elegance to this tag you created, possibly the colour palette and that dash of seam binding or maybe it is the composition - I love this.
