It's A Wonderful Life...

Hello everyone!

Hope you've all had a fabulous week and a great start to the weekend!!

Today, I'm sharing my August tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2014, which you can read all about on Tim's blog, HERE. Talk about leaving mine until the last minute but it's better late than never and I had a lot of fun working on this one, yesterday afternoon.

This month, Tim wanted us to follow our creative muse and the inspiration behind my tag was that August 2014 couldn't have got any better! It has been a whirlwind month, I'm on an exciting new journey and joining Tim's Media Team has been a dream come true. So, with that in mind ~ that's why I titled this tag 'it's a wonderful life" and I hope you love my interpretation of the Tim's wonderful tag.
I followed the same techniques as Tim used on his but I used the beautiful butterflies from the Papillon stamp set. I love how the image looks as if it's part of the Tissue Tape that was laid down on the tag before I stamped on it!
The background is created using Evergreen Bough, Stormy Sky and a touch of Rusty Hinge Distress Stain and I used the Ranger Texture Paste to create my embossed areas.
The little label is stitched on using a machine and I added a mirrored star in the corner.
I added a bow that was hand dyed with Distress Stains and added a pen nib to the centre....
...and as a finishing touch, I added my idea-ology pieces to complete the tag.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
I'll see you on Monday with my new Simon Says Stamp Challenge post.
Have a great weekend...Emma xx

  12. A late entry perhaps, but definitely a case of saving the best for last! Using the tissue tape to preserve white areas is a brilliant technique and you've illustrated its value perfectly with this tag. The lighter areas really enhance the beauty of Tim's inks and the background edge/frame provides that just right balance of lights and darks. Congrats on your new affiliation and with the holiday season approaching, your whirlwind may become more like a tornado! Have fun (and hold on to your hat)!
