Tim Holtz tags 2014 June...........except.....

it's not a tag! 
Oh! I started out with the intention of making a tag, even made several more backgrounds! You may have seen them on my desk on Wednesday...
This month Tim has used the watercolour monoprint effect which you can check out on Tim's blog here
Unfortunately, the time I had allowed to make a tag had to be used for something else! One of my close neighbours was involved in a road traffic accident, she spent the night in hospital but was allowed home the next day! The eye chart stencilled piece was not really suitable so chose my next favourite using 'dot fade'.
Using some of the distress colours I had used to make the background   I swiped the pad over some watercolour card, then stamped 'get', 'well' and 'soon',inked the edges and arranged them going down the stencilled piece I had cut. I used my trellis die on the faded pieces from the end and ran it through an embossing folder.
The stencilled piece I used was the second "spritz" piece so I then used the original piece to cut out some flowers from the Tattered Garland die and some leaves using Spring Greens.
I hope it cheered her up!
As for me, we are grabbing a couple of days at our caravan! Doesn't look as though I will get a chance to make the fabulous bow this time but I am definitely going to give it go sometime!

Thanks for looking, Chris

What a beautiful card that I am sure will brighten your friends day after the terrible fright she must have had. I love how you used the trellis under your flowers and all the inky shades on them.Enjoy your break at your caravan.

That was actually quite sweet of you, and I think the card meant more, and went to better use than the tag would have. You did a fantastic job on the card, too. Your die cuts always inspire me.

Now, to thank you beyond belief for visiting me, even when I was so busy, I had no idea what I was doing. You have NO idea how much your continued support and encouragement means to me, even when I don't take (or have) time to let you know.

What a beautiful Get Well card, Chris - wonderful use of those TH prints, and I'm sure your friend loves it (hope she is doing better now - how horrible). I love the dimensional flowers and the pretty colours both of them and the dot fade inky loveliness of the background. Fabulous!
