Admit one

Wow, this month is flying by and I am just now getting to work on my version of Tim's May tag.  I used stamps from the Calendar 1 and Oddities sets.  I did use the same color palette knowing full well that my background would look nothing like his.

I didn't have the enamel tags but created my own version using a fragment charm.  I edged the back side of the charm with black distress paint; let dry.  Then I kept adding enough white distress paint until I was satisfied with the coverage.  Let dry, turn over and proceed with the steps in Tim's step-by-step tutorial.

The calendar was stamped in Jet Black archival ink onto white shrink plastic that had been colored with similar colors.  It's held in place with a hinge clip.

Note to self:  these rub-ons are stickier than others I've used and sometimes the whole sheet would stick when I didn't want them to.


  1. Your tag is wonderful! Tim has some really fun products. You did him proud :)

  2. Love your version of the enamel tag - worked out really well. Interesting about how sticky the rubons are, I haven't tried them yet.

  3. Wow Susan. Your Tim's May tag is awesome! I love the deep rich colors you've used and blended for your background. The random stamping that you've done with Tim's stamps looks amazing! I think your fragment charm looks great, instead of the enameled tag! Love everything about this! I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. So glad that you liked the skewer card! You should try one...they are fun to make! Have a great week. <3 Candy

  4. Oh Susan...What a fabulous take my dear! I love your background colors, and the images you used from the sticky rub wonderful! What a super gorgeous tag!

  5. Cool! Great idea to use the fragment in lieu of the enameled tag! Love it!
