Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015-April

I am just under the wire in posting my April tag.  When Tim initially posted his tutorial found here,  I felt like I probably would not participate this month because I had few of the products used in his tag. But Tim's monthly tag challenge is all about the creative process not the products.
My favorite flower is the daisy and my daughters gave me a bouquet of daisies for my birthday...hence the inspiration for my tag. I recently received Wendy Vecchi's Darling Daisies SiSi from a shopping spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique...thanks, Linda.  It was the perfect stamp for my April tag.  I followed Tim's direction fairly closely for the initial steps.  I am still trying to get the hand of using the Distress Marker Spritzer.

 I used my Cricut to cut out "OFTEN" in block letters.  I used a die from my stash to cut out the word "smile" in script.  Running the paper through the xyron prior to cutting worked like a charm.  I also loved the technique Tim used to tint the Crinkle Ribbon...I used Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey. I have got to invest in a sewing machine...I loved the stitching on Tim's tag.

I have to include a picture of the bouquet my daughters gave me...
That's all for now....looking forward to Tim's May inspiration.  Thanks, for stopping by :)
