I was not totally happy with the T!m background I created for March so when I saw the theme here I knew it was an opportunity to try and improve it ;)
It has been joyful to be able to spend today making this tag....no work....time to play :)
Background uses Distress Paints. A Chocolate Baroque heart/wing stamped and embossed in gold. Coloured over with Distress pens in scattered straw, wild honey, worn lipstick and broken china. It's very cool the way the pens don't totally obliterate the background but seem layer further colour to add to the depth and helping it to stand out :)
The words mainly from the same set "Artistic Impressions" with a couple of little additions using a little studio G alphabet set.
The wings were masked and the background over stamped with a small T!m script in Distress vintage photo and aged around the edges with the same....
....because of my muscle problem, up until this week I have not been able to even contemplate using the distress tool and rubbing like that!!!
Heart finished with glossy accents and the ribbon given the distress pen once over.
Thanks for looking
P.S. Just a little design fault in the masking sheets I've found....
...why can't the backing sheet be white?
It's a devil of a thing to actually see where you are cutting on that stuff!!!
Also it would help by not stamping the image on the wrong side, because even though I thought I was stamping on the right side...when I cut the image out I realised my mistake!!! Grrrr!!!
