TH March tag

Before showing you today's project I need to tell you that I have changed my blog title. When I chose it all those years ago I didn't really know what the title would be used for and now I think it is way too long and better as a description than a title.
Crafty Endeavours is what I have settled on, at least for now...

I'm not sure it will make a difference to you dear readers, although RSS subscribers might want to rename their links.
Do let me know if this is causing problems.

    On to the crafty stuff...

In March Tim Holtz is revisiting a Textured surfaces technique and mixing it with the Dimensional dies technique, taking the opportunity to try his Distressed Crayons.

In the cold light of day, well light full stop, the colours of my background do not quite gel with my top layer. Never mind this isn't going to anyone, let's call it a practice piece!

If you want to know about the techniques on this tag I'll refer you to the master here but here are some of the supplies I used:

- corrugated cardboard (from my recycling bin)
- Sizzix/Tim Holtz Mixed media Thinlits (last year's collection)
- Spellbinders labels dies 7
- Gelatos (no Distressed Crayons in my stash yet but it's under consideration)

As a finishing embellishment I used some twine with a key cut from black shrink plastic (Sizzix Hardware findings) and embossed with Vert-de-gris powder.

Thanks for coming by,

  1. Great new name for your blog.

    The tag is fantastic with lots of texture

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Always love to see a bit of recycles corrugates Christine and so effective the way the splashes of colour are peeping through.

  3. Lovely take on Tim's tag and I love the use of the corrugated card! Thank you so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog... :)

  4. Really great idea to use the repetitive shapes. I just can't decide on a cut out for mine, but love this idea!
