12 TAGS OF 2015 - APRIL

I adore the new Flower Garden stamps from Tim's last collection. These will be top of my list for lots of cards. I missed out on the first 2 UK deliveries of the stamps but third time lucky in trying to order them saw them drop through my letter box only yesterday. One happy person here! I didn't think I would enjoy the colouring as much as I did either. But using Distress Markers and a water brush has definitely made it fun for me. Another technique I shall be using a lot more of. My tag turned out ok in the end -
Fortunately I had Tim's thinlits 'Love' dies which I certainly love. Cutting them out of dark card makes them stand out so well. As for the other dies - I don't have any of those so it was thinking cap on time again. I used 'school house' stencil #11 to pencil the word LIFE and then cut around it with a craft knife. Hey! it actually worked. Another for this year's set which is building really quickly meaning another year is flying by once more. Thanks for the April fun Mr Holtz.
