Not Quite T!m's 2012 Tag!

In a way I'm somewhat relieved T!m has called it a day on the 12 Tags of can be very hard to fit in playing along at that time of year...
...especially for 12 continuous days...Fun but tricky...
...(Yes I know he kept it open till the end of the month but I'm a sort of do it all in one go or it never will get finished sort of gal!!!)...
...even I can manage that surely!!! LOL
So....I liked the cute Feb tag of T!M's but it was not quite what I wanted to express on mine....and seeing as I did not have the honeycomb paper either it seemed pointless trying to match it....but it gave me the inspiration for this...

Still cute in my eyes but I took it one step further and made an art journal page for it!

By the way The Artistic Stamper has some Honeycomb Paper in stock here.

I have not quite finished the page so I'll post that up tomorrow. ;) It's turned it from cute to personal and quite dark....just to warn you! LOL

The tag was cut with the tag die from a cardboard envelope that some new stamps arrived in the other day and embossed (it's nice to save the planet even in a small way)...then I swiped the white dabber over and coloured as per T!m's stamped one. The wording is cut from T!m's letter dies using both positive and negative letters and the butterfly is a Papertrey die all glittered up and with black enamel accent dots for the body.

Thanks for looking.....see you tomorrow? ;)

  3. Love your tag - can't wait to see it transformed into dark and meaningful though! Have a great weekend.
    I too, think spreading the tags through the year (and making them varied seasonally) will be great - and hopefully easier to partake in - it was a struggle last year especially to do for 12 days straight. Good old Tim, always changing and challenging us!

  4. Look forward to seeing the whole page :D XXX


    sorry I couldn't help myself ;-)
    too soon?

    great tag anyway! :-D
