Dream It, Wish It, Do It ~ 12 Tags of 2014

Hello friends...

Hope you've all had a fabulous week and your looking forward to the weekend! I'm hoping that my internet will be playing nicely this weekend, as all week...I've had serious problems with it and we're definitely about to have a major falling out!!

Today, I'm sharing my tags inspired by Tim Holtz's fabulous March 12 Tags of 2014, which can be seen here! As always, I really hope you love what I've created...
As I hadn't got the particular stamp set that Tim used, I adapted mine slightly and used the butterflies and moths from the Papillon set but used exactly the same smudged stamping technique as Tim used and I hope the photos show the paler, faded second generation version as opposed to the alternative, "full strength".
Dream ~ Full Strength 
Wish ~ Second Generation "smudged" version 


So, I really hope you like my tags for this month and as always, I appreciate all your lovely visits and comments...they really do mean so much to me!!
Have a great weekend everyone and see you very soon!
Love Emma xxx

I have also entered these tags into A Vintage Journey ~ Say It With Words Challenge

Emma...your take on Tim's March tags is so lovely. You've done such an excellent job of the smudge technique. Your two tags using the butterflies from Papillon are so pretty. I also love how you've used the pediment at the bottom of the tag and added the word sticks. So pretty! Thanks for sharing your tags with us at A Vintage Journey. <3 Candy

These are really beautiful, Emma - gorgeous colouring on the butterflies, and I love the shift of word from the first to the second generation. Thank you so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.

I certainly love your tags Emma, they are so very beautiful. I love how you used the butterflies, your smudging on the second tag is perfect. The pediment and beautiful ribbon are wonderful finishing touches on both tags - gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining in our 'Say it with Words' challenge at A Vintage Journey. Anne x

Hi Emma, I really love your take on tims march tags. They caught my eye as I was looking through the entries. You have mastered the smudge technique perfectly and I the main tag pops out on the black background. The pediment and the coloured vintage ribbon are perfect finishing touches. Mo x

Buttons said...

Always elegant Emma. I love the choice of stamps for these two and the way you've added the pediments to the bottom of the tags. Thanks for joining us at A Vintage Journey. Jenny x
