Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 May

It's the last day of the month and I am just making the deadline in keeping up with the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012!
The feature of this tag is the faux  porcelain flowers. I seem to really like the  "porcelain" flowers lately!

For the base of the tag I had used a piece of old dress pattern paper. I then stamped on it using  the Haberdashery stamp set along with Black and Rose Madder archival ink.
The flowers used were from prima, which I edged with barn door, shaded lilac and squeezed lemonade distress inks. I then dipped the flowers into utee to give it that faux porcelain look.
 The spool was cut from grunge board then inked with scattered straw and edged with vintage photo distress inks. I then wrapped the spool with some hemp string.
I had purchased the cloth ruler from a fabric store a couple of years ago.
The quilting needles sign was punched out from the paper stash Crowded Attic, then glossy accents was applied on to it to give it an epoxy sticker look.
The ribbon was stained up using antique linen distress ink.
Here is the finished results !

WHEW!! I am done and ready for the weekend to start!
