Okay let's get to work ... Challenge # 25 Frameworks found on page 64 !
Oh my goodness , what a fun variety of frameworks Tim has. I own two but I think I want more !!
So fun ... I chose to use my Trellis Framework. I created a colorful Spring Tag. As I've mentioned in the past participating in these challenges gives me the opportunity to use my Tim toys. I so enjoy this.
I pulled out so many toys I have not used for a while. I used trellis framework, mini bunny and bow , tapered fringe, tattered floral and spring greenery dies.
The frosted film flowers were colorized with picked raspberry . It was fun heating them and shaping them. I colorized the ribbon using distress stain ( same colors as seen in the background) .
The mini rabbit was embossed with vintage photo distress glitter and I positioned him between two layers of the tapered fringe that I distressed with vintage photo distress ink and curled the ends using my small stylus. I used small pop dots to add dimension.
For my background I used a technique we used for Tim's March Tag; using symphony tissue tape and cracked pistachio, abandoned coral, broken china, and picked raspberry distress paints. Love those bright colors !
I cut my trellis and tapered fringe from the fabulous shattered kraft-core ... oh such awesome choice for this. To embellish my tag I cut small flowers from frosted film and modeling film (Wendy Vecchi Art Parts). I embossed the mini rabbit with vintage photo distress glitter. I cut eggs from a "mop up" tag ... a trick I learned from Dyan Reeverly! I had way too much fun ...
I also added a small sign created using scraps from the mop-up tag and a stamp from my stash... Hoppy Spring !
So I do hope you are joining us... don't forget to review the rules and guidelines, visit the Curiosity Crew blogs and show them some love . See you on Saturday ... for the new Challenge ! :)
