TH #09 September Tag

I have been sitting on this blog post for some time. Firstly as my order for the crinkle ribbon took an age to arrive, second as I made a few tags in the same style and one was for a SWAP and I didn't wish to give the game away before it was received.

I made 3 tags this month one like Timmy's and 2 with more of his workshop influence.

I bought some embossing paste some time ago and this was the first time I had used it properly, so thanks for the nudge Tim.

Really loved the colours in this month's tag, had to make do with my distress pads as I didn't have the stains in the same colours but no big deal.

So glad my workshop stencil was the sunshiny one, I love it. I had a honeycomb stencil and the others I made myself.

The butterfly stamps are all from different sets, mix and match is what I say.

Enjoyed staining my ribbon and then stencilling on top, what a great effect.

Oh and as I mopped up the ink with a spare piece of paper, I made this journal page too.
Yep - a fun time this month playing with Timmy's techniques and the bright colours - Brill.
