Treasure Life... 12 Tags of 2015

Hey everyone!

Thank you for all your lovely visits to my blog and a big thank you for all the comments you've left me on yesterday's post ~ I've really enjoyed reading them all!

Today, I'm just popping by to share my April version of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags for 2015 which you can see HERE! I know I'm a little late joining the party but better late than never and I've just about made it by the skin of my teeth ~ I'm not sure where April has gone but it's sure flown by!

As always, I hope you love my interpretation of Tim's wonderful tag...

As you've probably notice by now, I have chosen different stamps to the ones that Tim used. I do have the Flower Garden stamps but I'd only just used that gorgeous set in a forthcoming magazine commission (watch out for the July issue of Making Cards Magazine) and I thought it would be nice to use something a little different...so, with this in mind I chose to use the butterflies from the Watercolor set.
On of my favourite things to do is relax with some of my favourite music, watercoloring with Distress Marker pens and this was the perfect tag for my to indulge in!
I've used all the techniques that Tim used on his tag but I added a little crackled bottle in place of the star and popped a piece of twisted wire and a Chit Chat sticker into the cork...
As a finishing touch, I mounted the entire tag on a piece of ripped and torn corrugated card!
I really hope you love my version of the April tag and as always, thank you so much for stopping by today ~ I really appreciate it!
See you soon...love Emma xxx

Once again, a big thank you for your comment and the alcohol inks I used on the little bottle were Pool and Lettuce. I just dropped a small amount of each, directly to the crackled bottle and let them blend! :)

I love your 12 tags entry Emma! I've only just made time to blog hop around the tags and this is one of my favourites this month. I love the shabby chic look to the tag and the background is divine, as is the tiny bottle. Love the idea of using the chit chat sticker as a label. Gorgeous as always. :)

Emma, this is my favorite version of Tim's April Tag! So happy you made it in time! I love your butterflies, and am now sold on getting that set--didn't think I needed one more butterfly, at first! Putting this on the white corrugated card backing is just genius, and really set's the tag off beautifully! Love!
