April's T!m Tag


T!m is on the ball again with his April tag.  As it was a bank holiday in the UK yesterday and the weather was rubbish I decided to have a play.

T!m suggested trying out different colours, so I used picked raspberry, spun sugar, forest moss, mowed lawn and bundled sage distress paints, mustard seed and walnut stain distress ink and antiqued bronze and tarnished brass distress stains.

I didn't bother to colour the metal pieces as I quite like them how they are.

These colors are not my usual cup 'o tea, but they're beautiful on this tag! My favorite part is how you used the pen nib as the body of the dragonfly!

Believe me, I don't normally use these colours either Steph but I thought I'd give a different colour wave a go for a change!!

Great colours. Very Spring like, despite the weather. Isn't it cold?! And I'm with you in leaving the metal alone. I tried painting it for my tag and don't think I will again.
