TH #03 - March Tag

No never again! Tinsel glitter gets everywhere! I got a pot of pink tinsel glitter in a prize and have been meaning to cover a Timmy bunny with it for this month's Timmy Tag and today I did it and YES it got everywhere!

I'm NOT a messy crafter. I HAVE to clean up as I go but I suspect I'll be finding bits of this glitter for weeks. Give me Stickles any day! Bunny then had a liberal dose of extra firm hairspray hopefully this will save any shedding!

Anyway (after the clean up operation!) I got on with the rest of the tag. I was rather taken by Ranger's colour palette this month so I have combined the two, just in the mood for a pretty pastel tag.

The backing tag is cut from the packing card of an embossing folder - glad I saved that one. I cut my banner with deckle edge scissiors. The tree was an after thought (a diecut form a friend sitting on my desk just asking to be used!) and I had to jiggle around to get it under the frame!

I had an accident with one of my flower petals as I was rather enthusiastic moulding it and one tore off. I stuck it back on and used my favourite product of the moment LIQUID PEARLS to hide the tear! Oh and I had a change of heart for the wording so Happy Easter became Easter Bunny.

Phew two challenges in one.

Glitter gets everywhere doesn't it even if you don't spill it!.
When I use glitter it's like a 70's disco for days (not that I remember them!)
