Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 May

Whew!  I made the May tag during the month of May with minutes to spare  ha!

This tag was alot of fun to make.

I loved the idea of mounting each embellishment on its own frame to create a tiled tag! so here are a few of my favorite diecuts/embellishments and the lucky 13 :)
Hope you are having a great weekend!

CC3C #3

Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #3

Once again I have turned to another page in this great book and found  this next challenge. The challenge is to use Tim's Faux Tea Rose Technique
I can't tell you how I made my roses but I will say that I cut them down so they would be smaller and fit on the ole jalopy :) I cut the flowers from white cardstock and then sprayed them with a mix of fired brick distress ink mixed with perfect pearls love the glimmer they have.

I loved the first challenge so much that I wanted to give it another try. I was going for a sunset. I really do like this technique.

The following products were also used:
perfect pearls mists heirloom gold
Ranger foil cardstock
Tim Holtz's collage embossing folder
distress paints
distress inks
Tim Holtz old Jalopy sizzix die

Once again Inspiration Emporium will be sponsoring this challenge. One lucky winner will win a 50.00 gift certificate!!

If you are interested in joining in on the challenges Linda over at StudioL3 would love to have you join in!

All the best

Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 February

here is my February tag
I always try to use products that I have on hand.
In this technique it was creating the effect of a chalkboard.

Once again the background was created by using one of Tim Holtz's stencils called hearts. I also used the new chunky distress glitter. I am not usually a glitter person but for some reason I really like this glitter! sorry about the photo, the glittered heart is not that dark.

I am off to go work on another challenge.

12 Tags of 2014 January

Good evening,
I am finally able to post my January tag!
I love how this turned out!
So glad I have the pocket watch die!I had used a stencil to create the background.  I used the gears embossing folder to create the inside of the pocket watch. A lot of sanding ink and paint was used.
So much fun!
