Tim's March Tag 2014

With all the excitement of starting on the DT at A Vintage Journey, I have been even more Tim inspired! There is still a week to join the first challenge and it is "Anything Tim," so stop on over. I absolutely will not bore you with the details of how I made this tag, because you probably already know or can find all the guidelines on TIM's blog. 
For the most part I followed all the steps with a few changes. One I did not have that new "spritzer," but it will make it on my list! I used a mix of reinker and Perfect Pearls and used the mini mister. I do wish I had used a darker ink for the stamped main images as I think the Vintage Photo was a little too light and more so on the second tag, but all is still good! A Splash of Color is the challenge theme at Inspiration Journal and we are flying over there to share.
I had already ordered the Nature Walk stamp set from my Funkie Junkie friend and I will say that 20% off really helps when you have found you ordered 12 stamp sets, so I went with the smaller version of stamps!
 
That Lattice stencil is gorgeous and the little eggs I picked off some cheesy little nested Michael's item, that I knew would come in handy one day!
Could not resist adding some feathers from my dear Fred, which I have done whenever possible. It is just a little more of a tribute kind of thing now! OK, we won't go there, but I do miss that little guy!

 
The second stamped birdie barely showed up with the stencil activity, so we had a painted wing compromise!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It is very warm here today and almost a little too warm so quickly!

I like the Vintage Photo ink on these cards, softer images.

You are really doing Mr. Tim a great honor with your tags, they are really stunning.
