March Tag for 12 Tags of 2012

Tim's 12 Tags of 2012

This is for March (didn't do February). I had a couple of the items and had to improvise with the others. I didn't have the wood background stamp so I ran the tag through a wood looking embossing folder. I inked it with Vintage Photo. I did the butterflies like Tim's but used a platinum embossing powder. I think it came out ok. I've done this technique before and have used small, silver glass beads for the grout. The butterflies had pretty small "grout lines" so I didn't think the beads would work.

Since the tag was embossed, I stamped the saying on a piece of foil that I inked with alcohol inks. The flower is out of my jewelry making stash.

Thanks for looking.


  1. love your tag. Love the use of the embossing folder and the coloring on it. the background for the text is gorgeous and such a nice pop of color. Cute butterflies.

    Don't like your word verification though

  2. I love your tag. I haven't done mine yet and love how you used the stuff you had on hand. I love the bold colors you used behind your sentiment. Really pops.

  3. Great tag! Love the wood grain and your awesome background under the sentiment.
