Tags of 2013-May

Hi friends,
I'm back to share my tag for this month.
Here's Tim's tag:

Here's mine:
I didn't have the Mona Lisa stamp so I used this one I had. The technique this month was using his remnant rubs but I don't really like using rub-ons so I don't really have much. After digging through my stash, I came upon some fun stitches. Those are the ones that frame the tag. There are 3 different types of stitches on the tag: running, zig zag, & whip stitch. Then I used my Distress Stains in Wild Honey, Broken China, Bundled Sage, & Fired Brick. (Although Wild Honey & Fired Brick seemed to overtake the others :(

Here's a closer peek:
 I added a foliage flower to her hair, a strip of filmstrip, & last- the word band. Embracing imperfection is hard to do but something that I find myself having to do all the time. Mainly because I've learned to just let things go.
I really wish more of the blues & greens would have come across on my tag, but it is what it is & I'll embrace imperfection *Ü*

That's it for now. Thanks for peeking!
