I knew this month's Timmy Tag would not only be a challenge supplies wise but also subject wise.
I pondered a while and then jumped straight in by making my own tissue paper by stamping some music score on plain tissue paper with jet black StazOn. Quite amazed at how well it turned out. I Pritt sticked my tag and squished the tissue paper on and again pleased at how well it crumpled up and moved about.
Got some Autumn paints colours out (Avocado and Clay) and did the baby wipe thing - hmmm like that technique. Smooched the paint about and added Pitch Black to the edges. I highlighted with Crushed Olive and Spiced Marigold Distress Inks and stamped a few bare trees with black archival. Nearly forgot to spray with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl Mist but so glad I didn't forget as it looks lovely and rich and sparkly.
The word "TIME" just grabbed me so I black glittered some of my WORDPLAY letters. (Don't think I have glittered this way since last year's 1st Christmas Tag - LOL).
I cut out the October month from my Lost and Found Paper Stash and attached with a swirly paper clip. Hmmm - then what next? I hunted around and found my last ceramic hedgehog button and sewed him on the bottom edge, added a few leaves, an acorn, some string strands and even a dangly metal leaf.
Then after the word "TIME", I just HAD to add the words "To Hibernate". Done!
I'm sure this would count for Simon Says Stamp and Show's current Rustification Challenge too as it is rather RUSTIC!
Just had to pop this in to ABAC too.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

I love the rusty autumn colors of this tag. It is incredible. And I like how you "did your own thing." Tgat hedgehog is so cute and clever.
Not sure how I missed this BJ! It's a gorgeous tag. Full of texture, wonderful colour, images and lovely embellishments. I think the composition is spot on too. So glad that you decided to show the tag at Anything But A Card too!!
Very nice! The colours and embellishments really make the tag have that "need a sweater but still want to be outside" feel. Thanks for sharing!
