April 2015 Tim Tag

DSC_0002Just a quick post today to share my version of Tim Holtz’s April tag.  I decided to make a card and keep it simple.  I only use four colors on this card; one for the flowers, two for the stems and one for the drop shadow.  DSC_0004

I punched holes instead of dragging out my sewing machine for the border.  DSC_0003

I couldn’t find a store that had any of the die cuts in stock, either on-line or brick and mortar (which I find infuriating) so I used a stamp by Stampers Anonymous instead. I have been resisting the urge to invest in the Spitzer, but I finally took the plunge and I confess:  I am in love.  There really is no other way to get that fine mist of ink.  The mechanism to hold the pen in place seems flimsy and I bet this will be the first thing that fails.   DSC_0001Sorry, the flower stamps have been in my stash for years and I’m not sure who they are by.  Thanks for stopping by!
