Tim's Tag May 2015

I adore this glorious tag from none other than the fabulous Tim Holtz:

And here's my very feminine spin on it:

This was a blast to do!  I used several of his techniques and most products on this tag are from his various lines.

The burlap tag adds such wonderful texture, and then I just basically added layers of ephemera, some ribbon roses, hand-dyed ribbons etc.  The sentiment pretty much echoes how I am trying to feel about art...be original, be fearless and be you, bravely.  Some days that's a very tall order :)

Here's what I used:
Big Shot Pro, Ranger #8 manila tag, textured surfaces, tag and bookplates die, photobooth, emporium ephemera, small talk stickers, misc. ribbon roses, loop pins, buttons, thrift shop ephemera pack, arrow adornments, light modeling paste, matte medium, seam binding, spun sugar distress ink, walnut stain distress ink, frayed burlap distress ink, sanding block, sponges, pearl stick pin

Yes, not my usual CAS design by any means, but I simply had so much fun. As much as I love making CAS cards, I truly love so many different styles...vintage being one of them!

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
