It's still April ... I'm not too late

Here it is the end of April and I'm finally attempting Tim's April 2013 tag.  I love the dragonfly blueprint stamp.  I just couldn't let the opportunity go by without giving it a shot.

I also love the Distress Paints.  I used Broken China and Wild Honey.  I didn't have the Distress Metallic Paints, so I opted for the Copper from Ranger's Adirondack Metallic Paint Dabbers.  It actually worked pretty well with water and the Distress Paints. After the paint was dried, I covered parts of the tag with a layer of Distressed Ink in Vintage Photo, Broken China, and  Rusty Hinge and flicked some water on it.  I really like the interaction of all the Distress products! 

Shrink plastic was used for the dragonfly wings.  I like the effect.  I have no idea how many layers of paint and alcohol ink are on the metal "8" at the bottom.  I think I spent more time on it than anything else on this tag.

It was a great deal of fun playing with new techniques and products on this tag.  Thanks Tim for continuing to challenge us to new levels of creativity.

I am truly enjoying the journey.
