12 Tags of 2013 April Tag - just in time, and a crafty mash-up

I've been a bit lax in keeping up with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013, I try to keep up but if I do get them done I forget to upload them :(
I made a card for my friend Bibi's Birthday using one of the massive Ranger tags and Tim's April technique.
I didn't have the metallic distress paint so used the distress stains instead along with some of the distress dabber paints that I do have.

I also didn't have any clearly for Art so used some heat resistant acetate to stamp the face section from a La Blanche steampunk stamp.

 Of course, I just had to do a pop-up for the inside of the card!

Side on - curved heat resistant acetate
I've also been dabbling a bit with jewelry making, I made this necklace and bracelet for a work colleague who was returning to India.  

Still love playing with stencils and molding paste, and art journaling after attending 2 classes with Dina Wakley at AFTH in Harrogate
Molding paste, stencils and gelatos

You have been busy! All of your projects are so different in technique but your style shines through. Love the vintage/ Steampunk look. Don't you love Dina's classes? I took one last fall.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Yvonne,
Think we almost met at Ally Pally, as I was chatting to your friend.
Just been looking at your gorgeous artwork, looks like you have fun & productive days with your two friends. I particularly love your Finnabair style layouts. And your frozen Charlotte necklaces are amazing!
