Spring For Tim’s March Tag

Just got in the new Nature Walk stamps from Tim Holtz.
So it’s time for Tim’s March tag and you can get all the details

The technique of “Smudging” the ink is new to me, and I like it very much as these old wiggly hands make smudged artwork normally.
So I look like a PRO!
Our weather here is off and on sun today, so my pictures are all different due to the sun, please hang in there as they do get better.

I made two tags and one set of four tickets for this technique.
So there will be a lot of pictures.

The large “Bird” stamp is the only one that is Not from the
“Nature Walk” set. All other stamps and products are some form of Tim Holtz or Stampers Anonymous. 

If you haven’t picked up the new “Latticework” stencil, believe me it’s well worth it and you can find it
here along with the “Nature Walk “ stamps. 
I used Tim’s Journaling Tickets for my set of tickets.
Cut them with “Mini Ticket” Movers and Shapers Die.
Using a small mask for the eggs, some fancy cutting
and detailed painting to complete the tickets. 

I would like to enter these in Tim's 12 Tags of 2014
And in "Anything Tim" challenge  at Vintage Journey.
Thanks for stopping in today,
(Remember only 11 days until Spring Starts..)
Well we can only hope!
Hugs Vada

Vada these are absolutely beautiful works of art. Each tag and ticket reflects the wonderful vintaged and distressed look and as my eyes wander over them there are so many details to take in. Thank you for packing them up and bringing them on A Vintage Journey to share with us.
