I had a break though! If you are on Facebook with me you know all about my fear of the Tattered Pinecone Die! All my hard work, burnt fingers and twisting pays off.
I decided to create a little Easter Inspiration with this months tag! I followed the tag Tim created...to a point. A lot of the elements are the same with a tweak or two here and there.
This is my take on the April Tag.
I had decided early on to use a #10 Tag. I have been trying to make this for a week!
I had some mini bunny's left over from theHippity Hop Luminary's. I traced the bunny onto some scrap grungeboard then cut it out.
I covered the bunny with glossy accents then smooshed a handful of Spanish moss. I trimmed the moss to get the bunny's frame. I added the smallest tied bow for the bunny bow.
I cut the ornate frame and used tumbled glass distress paint. A perfect frame.
You can see the splattered ink for the background. I used tattered rose and milled lavender for my distress paint.
I have all these frameworks scraps. So I used up those for my tag including a cork frame cut.
As part of my "tattered pinecone journey" to get to this tag I scooped a bunch flowers I had ready made in my broken cookie jar. It's getting low.
I loved having them ready!
I also added some garden greenery in bundled sage. A tag this size I can get away with packing it!
I think this is my favorite tag so far. Now that I no longer break into a sweat seeing these tattered pinecones as flowers!
I know my fears and efforts to force myself to make a pretty flower has inspired a lot of you to try making them yourself. Or go out and buy the die! I'm excited that my break through inspired you to try too.
