My take on Tim's tag for June ...just!

Well yet again having been full of good intentions to create my tag early in the month time and life just ran away with me so here is my take on Tim's tag for this month..phew just made it!



Well you know me , I do love my neutrals...so that is what I used for my version of the crafty masters tag...all the details can be found here  .

I followed Tim's steps but changed certain bits, cutting my cup from ivory card and colouring using distress inks..and I created my background using some of the mini distress ink pads in my favourite browns.



I love the different textures and instead of string added some wire..


Instead of the stiching I added some little staple kisses and substituted the straw for a curly wire one!


I finished the top of the tag with some dyed seam binding tied in a bow...


I will be adding my tag to Tim's tag for June here ..better later than never xx

  7. I can't believe we are 6 tags into the year! It seems so right to have a coffee cup based tag done in these shades....I wonder what jury's tag will bring!

  15. A brilliant InkyPinky take on the June tag - gorgeous soft blending to create the shading on the cup, and the curly wire straw is genius.
