Tim's Tag - February 2014
Here's my interpretation of Tim Holtz's Tag for the 12 Tags of 2014 Challenge. I say interpretation as I have very little of the supplies he used but it's a case of rummaging through the stash, using something similar and trying out the techniques.
I have no pale brown Distress Inks so I used Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick for the base of the tag. I don't have the Hearts stencil so I used the Dot Fade one instead. I cut a heart out of grungeboard and coated that with Christmas Red Stickles plus extra red glitter. The arrow I fashioned from Paperartsy's Metal on Card, the bottom border is painted with Silver Dabber and I stamped Oak House Studio's Enjoy What You Do stamp with White Dabber onto a Black Chalk ATC and then rubbed over it with chalk.
So I've made a tag and had fun doing it. I've had to think what to use and found stuff I'd forgotten I had. I think I might be buying the Idea-ology arrows though when I find some in the UK - I have friends who do archery and I'm from Robin Hood country so I'm sure they'll come in useful.
Thanks for looking and for your kind comments.
