12 TAGS OF 2013 - MAY

I always used to try and make my Tim tag the same day he blogged it, but I find I have less and less of the items he uses, probably because there are so many now that I can't buy them all any more.
Some thought had to go into making this month's tag because the main feature are rub ons which I've never even seen in the UK. I found a sheet of Lettraset letters and numbers which I must have had for 20 years (just shows that it pays to keep stuff) plus a sheet of rub on keys, locks etc. So I used those plus my Paris Component stamp and set to making this:
The rub on technique is quite appealing and one I will use again. I love the colour combination and the way the stamps just seem to fade into the stains. The little charm is one my hubby turned for me before he sold his lathe. Wish I had dozens of them.
Tfhank you Tim for another array of techniques. I enjoyed this one very much.

Lovely tag, great inky background, and you did well with the rub-ons you did have - like the keys. Elizabeth xx
