TH 12 Tags: April

Today my envelop from the
Vagabond promotion on the
Sizzix Blog arrived.

Thank you so much.
You want to know where my Vagabond is?
I am # 215.

Today I had my vagabond out
to use my bird cage die for
the April tag of Tim Holtz
 Here is my version of the April tag.
It took some thinking of what to do without the
bird on the branch die.
But i do like the April Shower idea, so I got the
ubrella man stamp out.
 The bird is from the birdcage die and colored with 
distress ink. The crown is out of metal with the little
crown die (one of the little shape dies).
 The umbrella man is stamped in archival black on
kraft paper and covered with glossy accent. 
The text is printed on kraft paper with the
computer and colored with distress ink.

I love the use of the embossing folder and the 
mirrored stamp. It gives the background such a great look.
Thanks Tim for another great tutorial.
Have a creative day!
