Spring time in London......

I’m playing along again this month with
Tim's beautiful March inspiration...
...and here are my versions, inspired by Tim's March 2014 tag. 

These are the bolder versions, which I prefer.
I tried both the bolder and softer versions, but was not so keen on the softer look. (I think it was because of my choice of stamps?)
Sadly, I don't own any of the stamps that Tim has used on his smudged stamp tag...but do love his choices especially that wonderful egg stamp!
So...I hunted through my stash of stamps, and decided to do a couple of styles, one in a similar 'spring time' look...also incorporating a nest (inkadinkado) and Butterflies (Andy Skinner/Rubber stampede)...and one totally different tag, a London/Travel theme.... London Bus (PaperArtsy) The Girl(docrafts) mini Globe (Tim Holtz)
I've added some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Key and charms to my tags
I don't have a spritzer either, but that's definitely at the top of my crafty shopping list!...So, I've just inked my Tim Holtz layering stencils (Bubble, Doily and Splatters)..... coloured in my stamping with Distress Markers (Pumice stone, fired brick and stormy sky)

Distress inks used...(Fired brick, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut stain, Peacock feathers, and tumbled glass)
....assorted idea-ology Remnant Rubs, assorted tissue tapes, Natural Hemp cord, word bands,
idea-ology Charms and key.
Painted word bands
Looking forward to the April tag now.
So until next time.....
Thanks for Peeking!
