12 Tags of 2013 - April

Hi there,
I wanted to post my April tag from Tim Holtz's blog. Is it just me? I get excited for the start of a new month and a new tag to create. I finished this one quite a while ago, but I haven't taken any photos until today.

We don't have the metallic distress paints up here yet, so I started with a shiny copper cardstock instead and used the paints over top for the patina. I did add some bronze distress stain to enhance the look after it was dry.

Next challenge, I didn't have CFA, so I improvised and used some packaging. I heated it with the heat tool CAUTIOUSLY so I could bend the wings up. Not too shabby. It worked!

I had the rest of the supplies on hand (my art room is like a mini store) to finish up.
