February's - 12 Tags of 2012
Tim Holtz has once again given inspiration to allow us to play.
It was my intention to make a tag using similar techniques, but was quickly side tracked (which I admit happens a lot).
1st the tags I had were a little too small, so made one from patterned paper, and added some distress colour.
Then I printed with white paint, but it didn't look good, so started again.
This time embossed the stamp. 1st in clear, which looked good, but thought the camera would not pick it up, so did it again further down and overlapping in coffee ink.
Next I wanted a raised item, so after much playing and many ideas went for making a butterfly, with punched out bits. Distressed the paper to help it blend in, the top layer has crackle paint on and a little glitter glue.
Beaded a few beads for the body and a little wire.
Letters from Tim Holtz collection along with the tissue tape for the frill.
Ribbon from the good old stash.
Now all I have to do is to link it to his site. March will be easy once i have worked out that bit.
Hope you all enjoyed your extra day this year, and if it happens to be you birthday, best wishes to you.
