12 Tags of 2015 - March

Good morning all and a warm welcome to my recent new followers, I hope you enjoy your visits here.

The forecast today is wet followed by windy...a good day to craft me thinks!

Finally got my tag made for March, this is version two. I don't have many distress paints so I had added some inks to the picket fence one to go with the two colours I had,  then yesterday I got happy mail with the my March new releases so decided to start again using the three new colours I now have.

I need some practise at this smooshing  ink/paint business...I never like my results! Tissue tape from my stash; three new colours distress paint; Scribbly Birds stamp; sunray stencil; texture paste; gold EP; various ideology pieces; charm and ribbon from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Artful Times - all things Tim
A Vintage Journey - anything Tim
Mixed Media Monthly - birds of a feather
Mixed Media World - anything goes
