It's All Perspective

For my GIVEAWAY, click HERE!!

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! I was able to spend a very happy Father's Day with my amazing Dad :) I even had a chance to sneak into my craft room and play along with Tim's June 2014 Tag Challenge!! I really enjoy playing along with the challenges when I can. I have been lucky enough to have won twice, including last month :)


For this tag, I pretty much followed Tim's instructions HERE. I used his Schoolhouse stencil for the watercolor background. The edges were inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. It's All Perspective is from Tim's Good Thoughts stamp set. The other two sentiments are TH's Idea-Ology Remnant Rub-On's Words. The butterflies are from Tim's Papillion stamp set. I fussy cut the butterflies and colored them with Distress Inks and a waterbrush. I was so bummed to walk into my Hobby Lobby last week and find the new French Flight Framelits with the butterfly dies like Tim used for his tag. I bought them, but decided to still use my fussy cut ones.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 - June
  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
  3. DL.Art - June Linky
  4. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  5. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great week :)

Hi Lisa,
Wow, what a gorgeous watercolor background! I love the pretty fussy cut butterflies and beautiful embellishment! Wow..even the ribbon matches perfectly! No surprise you won a couple times on the challenge! Your work is so incredibly gorgeous and inspiring! Love it!
I am glad you had a great time with your Dad on Father's Day! I went back home on Thur/Fri and Saturday and spent time with my folks then. My hubby and boys got back from Canada on Father's Day and we spent the time together as family before my oldest flew back out Mon morning to LA. We all had a great time! Sounds like they had a fabulous time in Canada! My hubby set up a 4 day trip for him and I to go in July...kind of lookin forward to it but just so crammed this summer with so many things~at some point will need a break from running! lol!

Have a great evening and hope your having wonderful weather :)
