When Tim posted his tag for May my first thought was 'can't do that'. I don't have the rub-on's and I don't have the stamp (yes I'm the one that doesn't have it lol) and with Chris at Uni I'm on a spending ban (except for the essentials like the Distress Paints, well I did hold out for a few months :-)
So this is my 'inspired by' Tim tag for May.
I've used some old rub-ons, and a combination of Distress Stains and DI's for the background.
All of the stamps are Artistic Outpost from the Paris Exposition plate. As usual when I was half way through I looked at it and nearly threw it in the bin, but then I added a few of the silver rub-ons and it seemed to tie in a little better. That's the thing about Tim's tags, if you keep on going they always turn out OK in the end :-)
I don't have any word bars so I used a microscope slide and coloured with alcohol inks. I love the way Tim dies his own ribbon. I have seam binding in loads of colours but it never looks as vibrant as when you die your own.
This is how it should have looked Mmm maybe next month...
I'm also linking this to the Artistic Outpost May referral programme.
Thanks for looking and enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend - why is it always my weekend to work when it's a bank holiday, just lucky I guess! xx
