Tim's Tag - January

I couldn't believe that I had gone 6 months without crafting or sharing. I did a few Christmas cards but gave them away without taking photos. I am going to try to at least follow Tim's tags monthly to keep myself motivated this year. That should be interesting :)
So for January :

I followed Tims technique for the background and the number rubons, which are from CTMH. I started out with a metal foil cardboard for the car diecut, but I used the vintage patina paint and a little alcohol ink to rust it up a bit. This is a card for a guy at work that is retiring. I am playing around with some other backgrounds now, too and hope to share them soon. YAY, back to crafting.


  1. Hi just popped on to say Thank you for your lovely comments on my follow your heart canvas, and to let you know that Treasure Gold is a metalic giding wax available in loads of lovely colours. You either brush it on your projects lightly with a soft brush, or simply with your finger to highlight textured areas. I am pleased to see your etake on Tim's January Tag I love your card and it is very original. I have done mine but have not posted it yet. Do post your mixed media canvas if you get round to doing one, I would love to see it. Hugs Mo x

  2. What a great card! I love the way you've altered the car in particular. Jenny x
