12 Tags of 2012 - March

So I've got finally got round to doing what I think will be my first attempt at March's 12 Tags of 2012 over on Tim Holtz's blog! So I had none of the equipment that Tim used to make this tag other than some Distress Inks and some Perfect Pearls therefore it was Improv Time!!

So this is Tim's tag:
And here is my take on it:
I ended up making up my wording on the computer and printing it out then cutting it into a tag. Didn't have the wood stamp so just used the scrunching technique, and none of the metal accents so just added a little flower I made ages ago!! No grungeboard or butterfly movers and shapers so just cut my flowers with my cricut out of regular cardstock and some little ovals out of patterned paper. Ran them through my xyron and stuck the paper on the added the embossing powder which also had glitter on (I think not such a good move) and then added glossy accents to the patterned paper! I think I did these too big though and had too bigger gaps in between so may try again with smaller pieces of paper and smaller gaps in between. Its all a learning adventure thought isn't it!! Oh and the tag is actually spritzed with perfect pearls as per instructions! Hoorah!
