Good morning and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday wander around the workdesks of the world! (Wondering what I'm warbling about? Find out here).
This week I am working on my July Tag for Mr. Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 and I'm waiting for inspiration to strike for a birthday card (oh my goodness ANOTHER card for a non card maker to make!) for my lovely neighbour who has a special birthday on 5th July (I'm cutting this one fine, I know).
So this is what my workdesk looks like today...
Once again I have very few of Tim's ingredients (being a Brit I don't have any 4th July-abelia) but as you can see the tag background is almost finished and has gone reasonably well. I still haven't decided what colours I'm using for my die cut butterfly (It is the closest thing I can find to correspond to the cut out design of Tim's Old Glory die).
Oh yes - lesson learned today - DON'T use greyboard (I haven't got Grungeboard) in Tim's Fanciful Flight die or you end up with this mess and a job for the pokey tool...
I ended up using cereal box board, but I'm yet to discover how that stands up to the Crackle Glaze/Distress Stain technique - I'll let you know.
Have a happy Wednesday and I hope to catch up with you later.
UPDATE: July Tim Tag now finished - you can see it here.
BTW - the cereal board was OK with the Crackle Glaze and DS combo - but I didn't put the CG on thick enough.
