This is my take on Tim Holtz's tag for April.  As always, you'll have to go to HIS BLOG to see the techniques used.  I had to improvise a few things again.  I had no distress paints so I used ordinary acrylic paint and bottled metallic ink.  It worked OK I think.

I also had none of the transparent film he used, so I used ordinary heat resistant acetate which enabled me to shape the dragonfly wings a little.

Love your take on Tim's tag and I have to say, just using ordinary acrylic paints seemed to work very well!

I think your tag turned out wonderful. If you hadn't told me, I never would have known you compromised anything. Very nicely done.

Absolutely brilliant tag, Lorraine. I could not even get off the mark with something like this but well done on areas where you had to compromise.
Also I missed your super gorgeous scrapbooking pages you made. Absolutely amazing and such a fantastic keepsake which is going to be treasured forever.

Thank you for your kind comment Lorraine. The stamp came with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine last month and is from a new set by Jane Nestorenko. Apologies for not replying sooner but we have had internet problems :0( x
