12 tags of 2012 - August

I'm glad to be back playing along with the 12 tags of 2012, I skipped the July tag, as so many of my pieces kept hitting the trash can, I thought it was best. Inspired by Tim's Tag for August, I totally improvised, not having much of the product on hand that he used on his tag.

12 tags of 2012 - August, stamps Our Daily Bread Designs and North Coast Creations
The beautiful Flower Oval Frame (NC24) is from North Coast Creations, stamped and Black embossed on the manilla tag, then colored with Nibs and Ranger Distress Inks (both Summer and Spring Seasonal Inks were used).  Currently the NCC Website is not up and running, but orders can be placed by calling 1-877-451-4909.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs Faithful Friend set. 

Following along with Tim's directions I used portions of an embossing folder (Tim Holtz Alterations Fancy and Floral Frames), then added the paint and inks, per his directions.  I used an On the Edge Die to cut the bottom portion.  To embellish I added some Prima Doodle Deux Charm Rose Flowers, Vintage Walnut Seam Binding, Charms and a Stick Pin.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs (sentiment), North Coast Creations (Flower Oval Frame)
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen, Walnut, Gathered Twigs, Summer/Spring Seasonal Inks, Embossing Ink

I totally love your take on this. It is fun to see a different approach and also someone like me who does not always have the same products to hand. Really excellent work.

Beautiful tag! Love the background and the floral embellishment! As much of Tim's stuff that I have, there is always something I don't and what makes the challenges fun is the "improvise." I have not even looked at what is going on for August! Enjoy!
