Tim's April Tags

April Tags and yes I have again more than one.  I needed to try some different stuff to get the same or as close to as I can.  In all I created 3 Tags suing the "stamp" Tim used, dictionary paper and SU printed paper.  What I don't have (most of it) I borrowed and used what I have...but mostly we shared.  We used the crown from the movers and shapers.  A little on the big side but hey, it got the look.  For each crown I made it slightly different. 

The first tag is done the with same stamp Tim uses and lucky my my GF owns it.  The effect when stamping is a more washed and worn look.  This crown has champagne glitter glue.

 This tag has the dictionary paper.  The paper is thinner and when embossed it does OK.  It takes the ink well also.  This crown is coated in Dazzling Diamonds.

My GF and I did buy the metal charms and split the cost. 
  The final tag uses the Stampin Up printed paper.  This thick card stock took the embossing well and made the inks look deeper.  This crown has the little pearls on top. 

All 3 are very similar looking.  It's great to use what you have, share what you don't and try different things you have on hand.

I hope this inspires you to use what you have on hand and borrow what you don't I brought what I could and we shared it all. 

HAPPY EASTER:)
