Hello and happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  I’m getting to Tim’s April tag early this month because it’s a delaying technique to avoid crunching certain numbers that must be crunched this time of year.

But I promised myself that after I finished the tag I would go fill out all those durned forms. And I did.  Phew.

Anyhow, as usual, it’s amazing to see just how many products are needed for one little tag.

I love the way the Symphony Tissue Tape and Sketchbook Tissue Tapes combined with Picked Raspberry Distress Paint to make a cool background.

Tim used this tag to introduce one of his new products, the Frameworks Trellis die, which I don’t have yet. I was intrigued by the idea of filling in the empty spaces in a die and thought my Weathered Clock die would work.

Rather than leaving it plain, I decided to color the mirror backed plastic with Stream and Bottle alcohol inks.

I just love the roses made with the Tattered Pine Cone die. And, yes, the bird is a rather obvious allusion to “time flies.” 🙂

Happy creating!

    1. I had to go back and check to see if I made a typo, Jackie, cuz you are one of two people who called it Pickled Raspberry, not Picked Raspberry. Conjures up an interesting image though, lol.

  1. That’s a beautiful tag, gorgeous colours and I love those roses as well. Must get my pinecone die out from the back of the cupboard and make some.

    1. Nah, there’s never any more time, Margaret, just one less thing to think about. Hope you have a blessed Resurrection Sunday.
