May Tim Holtz tag

Hello !

May is already here, even if we're still waiting for some heat and sunny days to finally have BBQ in the garden...
Nevermind ! The May tag from the Tim Holtz blog is a perfect opportunity to bring warmth and colors to my day...
Love the tissue tape resist technique and the add of small embellishments...

I choose a stamp by Stampendous to stamp over the tissue tape in two spots. I used the distress inks by Tim Holtz in Peacock Feathers, Marmelade, Dusty Concord and Picked Rasperry.

The paste over the Measured stencil (Tim Holtz) is a gold crackle paste (Prima Marketing).
The small flowers are cut with Cricut and the Flower shoppe cartridge.
Both ribbons are sprayed with Tattered Angels inks (Bahama blue and Party pink glimmer mists).
I covered a metal charm with purple glaze paint (Tattered Angels), and made an inclusion with a glass beads I bought in Istanbul.

Very nice result for super easy techniques ! Thanks again Tim Holtz for this monthly challenge !

See you soon !
