Tim's Tags of 2015 - March


Hi Everyone, Tim's tag this month is showcasing his enameling technique, something I hadn't tried before. I am pleased with the results and am sure I will use on future projects.


When I saw Tim's Tag I decided to be brave this month and go for the bright colours, as I tend to shy away from them. I got as far as finishing my enamelling on it, but was lacking inspiration to carry on with the bright colours staring up at me. So I restarted in vintage tones which you now see on my finished tag.


Apart from the shades of colour being different on my tag, I also used my Distress Pens to add a little more uniformed shading into part of my Butterfly.


I used a Penny Copper Metallic on top of the Texture Paste.


I also distressed the corner of my tag slightly and added a little Rose Gold Treasure Gold onto it along with 3 little star brads and my sentiment tag.


Finally a few beads from a broken bracelet were added on to my Butterfly to finish.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today and good luck to everyone entering Tim's Challenge this month.
