Tim Holtz: 12 Tags of 2014 - September


Wow, where did the last month go -
 I must have blinked and missed it!

Needless to say, I haven't been doing much crafting,
but am now back at my craft desk only to find, yet again
I don't have the main ingredients for Tim's tag - doh!
Still that hasn't stopped me, even though my take on
this month's tag is somewhat abbreviated.

Tim's tag for September is above - 
if you want to see how he made it,
click on the picture to go to his blog.

.... and here's my version

If you've read Tim's post, you may be wondering
where my 'faded layers' in the background are.
Well, if I'd used the proper alcohol ink cardstock 
they would probably have shown up,
but as I used ordinary photo gloss paper they didn't.
(let that be a lesson to me!)
I still like the background anyway - it's always
interesting using alcohol inks, such lovely effects.

Something else I didn't have was the Sizzix
Butterfly Frenzy die - so instead I used
a butterfly punch and as the butterfly was quite large, 
I only used a single one instead of a whole bunch of them.

I made two of the tags with different rub on
words.  The beautiful stamp is called
Art Nouveau Profile (In8119-k) by Inca Stamp.

Maybe, just maybe, I'll have everything needed
for next month's tag (although I doubt it!).

Thanks for looking :)

Love the way these turned out and that is a lovely stamp - in fact it has reminded me I think I have something similar that hasn't seen ink for a while! Thanks for letting me know your card arrived, it's always good to know things arrive! Hope you had a wonderful day. Xx

I was wondering what ever happened to you~I get busy and miss posting for weeks on end calls doesn't it?
I think I like your interpretation of Tim's tags more than his. They have a very soft and 3-dimentional look to them. You are inspiring me to get busy and start making some tags. Love these.

Two gorgeous tags, Sherry. I actually really like it when someone makes a tag that isn't just a replica of Tim's. It shows more imagination and creativity. Jx
