Time for Tim ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well.  Well I got time to play a little this past weekend and I plan to use these techniques again and again!  I loved them and here is my tag …

I love it! 
It is so good to be using some of my older stash too! 
I can't say this is my favourite so far as there are so many more I hope to play along with!  Thank you Tim!!!

There are only a few differences between what I used and Tim used are the colours I used and my embellishments.  I had so much fun, learnt several awesome techniques and because some of my stash is very old I finally found a way that I can use the tub of mat black Dreamweaver embossing paste, it dries to a dull finish and I don’t like it.  I thought I had ordered the glossy paste, and I must have had this some time too as I don’t remember using it more than once.  I can now use it with my old embossing powders too.  Whilst typing this post and idea popped into my head and now I’m wondering if I could use my UTEE with this paste?  I have a large-ish box full of UTEE powders so I think I now what I’ll be trying out next lol!

If you want to know how I created this please visit Tim’s post here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Sorry I haven't visited for a while Karen, trying to comment and catch up with everyone all the time is just more than I manage at the moment. I've been keeping an eye on your creations via my blog list though and just had to pop in and say how wonderful this tag is. Your beautiful background and golden embossing is the perfect foil for this gorgeous vintage image and hearts, no wonder you are pleased with this too, it's beautiful.
Hope you are keeping well?

Oh that is such as nice tag. I really like it when people really take off from the techniques on Tim's tags and make it their own. This is beautiful and unique.
