I'm doing so good because I've been at home crafting lately. I had been so behind in all the challenges I love and also
Since I've had my foot surgery I've been stuck at home, which is a good thing because I'm catching up on all things crafty!
I had long loved Tim's 12 Tags and I've always done all of them. I have missed a few this year due to other obligations but I vow to catch up on those I've missed. I was able to sit down and do November's tag. I was in AWE when I saw his tag this month, it's just beautiful! Tim is always so creative!
I didn't have all the wonderful supplies that Tim used but I did improvise on those items.
As you all know, I am doing postcards instead of tags this year. I always make two, one for me and one for a friend
I started out by choosing my Distress Paint colors for my backgrounds and followed Tim's directions for applying them
I used the Layered Butterfly Die and embossing folder instead of the leaf one that Tim used.... I didn't have the stencil Tim used so I used the Burlap one
I also did not have the foil so I used Zing embossing glitter
Again, I didn't have any Distress Spray Stains (next on my shopping list) so I used my Adirondack Sprays
To add the gold I used Distress Paint and splashed and painted it on with a paintbrush
I didn't even realize how many substitutions I had to use until I started this post but hey, that is what the tags are all about, doing your own thing with Tim's tutorial.
Here is my finished Postcards:
I am really loving how they came out, the colors are beautiful and I love the cardboard!!
Make sure to check out Tim's Tag for November, it's just stunning!
