12 TAGS OF 2014 - SEPTEMBER

September???? surely it's only March! Another year flying by it seems. Well just look at Tim's tag for this month, it is gorgeous. So colourful and so very different. I love it. May just need to get that butterfly die now. I struggled - once again - to make my background. For some reason I just don't seem to be able to make my blending solution achieve the result I want. It's a mystery to me because I have done this technique before with perfect results. Anyway, I continued and tried to make the best of it. I used an old stamp from my stash and the Autumn Gatherings strip die to cut tiny colourful leaves. This was the result:
It's such a change from the grungy style tags and a style I will certainly have a go at again.

I couldn't get the technique to work either. Regardless your tag turned out great.

Looks like a lot of us couldn't get the technique to work! I tried 5 times and ended up using the last one that had a 'whisper' of part of the stencil design showing up! We both went with leaves as well! love the wreath you created with them!
