Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - NOVEMBER

Welcoming November with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016!!! 

So here it is, my take on Tim's "November remix challenge" 

This month Tim did a technique remix and used Remnant Rub Resist and Dimensional Coloring on his tag... 


I added the remnant rubs to the tag before I added stains...


I stamped the palmistry hand from the oddities stamp set and and used shades of purple to create dimension. I also de-bossed the hand to give it a little extra dimension...


I also added an embossed all seeing eye from the oddities stamp set.


A penny for luck...


As well as a little inspirational note that I thought worked perfectly with the theme of the card.



A few splashes of black and white stain and there it is, I hope you enjoyed looking at my tag as much as I enjoyed making it :)

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - OCTOBER

***UPDATE***
Tim picked my tag as one of the October winners!! How awesome it that!! For winning I was sent a new Christmas stamp set as well as a distress crayon!! So awesome!!!


Hello October 12 Tags of 2016!!! 

So here it is, my take on Tim's "October remix challenge" 

This month Tim did a technique remix and used Patchwork Collage and his Sizzix Monster on his tag... 

Since Halloween is my all time favorite I decided to give it a go.. 


I don't have a Sizzix Monster so I made due with what I have... Tim's Topphatted Skull stamp.. So I cut him out, cut out his eyes and added him to the tag to give it some depth. Added some inked crinkle ribbon and die cut a tattered flower to add a little extra to his hat and there it was. 


I added a little bit of patchwork with Tim's Halloween ephemera and added a nice layer the crazing medium to give a nice crusty look. 


I am totally in LOVE with all of the Tim Holtz Ranger clear rockcandy and the crazing medium!! 



So.. there it is, I hope you enjoyed looking at my tag as much as I enjoyed making it :)

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - AUGUST

Welcoming August in with style is a new Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 challenge.

Last month I decided to give the Tim Holtz 12 Tags challenge a try, and it was fun so I decided to do it again!! 

So here it is, my take on Tim's "Augusts remix challenge" 

He uses Frameworks to add style and the Brayered Stain technique to add random blots of color for the background.   

Over all I am pretty happy with how this tag came out.... 


I used Chipped Sapphire with the brayer to create a random streaked background and added some distress browns to grunge it up a bit. 




I also used the honeycomb framework cut from grungepaper to add a few focal points to the tag. I painted the honeycomb framework with distress paint before I added them to the tag. I filled in the negative spaces with mirror sheeting as well as rock candy crackle paint or some clear texture paste over pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper.



I die cut some wildflowers on black and white cardstock. Before I added them to the tag I used a distress tool to add some blue ink to the white flower and embossed it with clear embossing powder to add a bit of extra texture. I also embellished the tag with some words cut from an old childrens book I have, a bit of the story that I thought matched perfectly with the look of the mirror tiles on the tag.

So.. there it is, I hope you enjoyed looking at my tag as much as I enjoyed making it :)
