Simon Says - show us a Tim technique

This week the Simon Says challenge is to show a Tim technique - just in case we were all feel bereft at the ending of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas!

I have used some new colour sprays (woops, how did that happen!) and the bird cage die.  The bird I covered with the page of an old book before cutting it, and the cage has been distress embossed.

The bird was originally coloured with distress inks, but I have also sprayed it with a mini mister with broken china reinker, and forever blue perfect pearl powder. This is such a gorgeous colour... I love it.

I have also been playing with the adirondack colour washes sprayed direct onto the craft mat and a tag swished through it - boy are thos colours vibrant - watch this space!!


Once again the sponsors of the Simon Says challenge are offering a great prize to the winner - am off to check out the other entries now.





While we're talking about Tim, Lin from LB Crafts has a stupendous giveaway for the end of the year - check out the picture in my side bar and have a go (only I want to win, so don't try too hard (only kidding....)
