12 Tags of 2015 --April

Well I missed March tag simply because I didn't have the stickers that he used on the tag . So this month even though I didn't have all the tools and products Tim used I wanted to give it a try . I'm happy with the result .
The stamp is from Paper Inspirations --Coneflower which I've had for years .
I didn't have any of Tim markers so used Tombow markers . I think I really need to pick up a few of the TH ones since the colors seem to blend much nicer. Didn't have the spritzer either so just misted ove the watered background . The beautiful was stamped in black and embossed with clear EP since all the word dies I have were to big for the area.I did color the butterfly with Stream alcohol ink. The ribbon was dyed with Worn Lipstick and Broken China DI . To complete the tag I machine stitch around the perimeter and added a twine bow .

Beautiful! I love your purple cone flower! what awesome details you do! I have never dyed ribbon or stitched! Nor have I used my "stream" color for a very long time! I have a few TH marker and now a better selection of TB markers; now that I received a lesson from Nika's in Windsor on how to use them; I love them both! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! Have a great weekend! Spring is here! :)
