the end of april is here, so my crafting time this past weekend was spent on my april tag for the tim holtz 12 tags of 2013 challenge. my tag this month is very similar to the tag tim created which you can see here. the background was created with the new distress paints - used the distress paints on the metal pieces as well. the awesomest technique tim shared this month was stamping on modeling film - just stamp on it, heat it, bend it, let it cool and you have a dimensional element. i used the clear modeling film for the butterfly, but it comes in black and white also. you can find the tutorial tim created for april here.
