Tim Holtz March Tag 2012

Today has been a great day. I found out I was a winner in Tim's Tags February Giveaway!! I can't wait to see what goodies I get from Tim Holtz!!! And, on my doorstep was my signed copy of Tim's new book A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II. He is selling the signed copies on his blog!!

So, I was totally inspired to get working on his March tag. Here's a link to the post where he describes how he did the March Tag. Here's what I did differently. I didn't have that cool tape he used so I cut up little pieces of paper and glued them to the butterflies. Then I covered the bare grunge areas with my Zig embossing pen and embossed with Tim's Milled Lavender powder - I don't have Cement and it was the closest I had. Trust me, I wish I had that tape - mine worked, but it was not the easy way!! The paper I used was Vintage Shabby. I made my tag from Stampin' Up Crumb Cake paper and Tim's #8 Tag die. My woodgrain stamp is from Stampin' up. The Distress Ink I used was Gathered Twigs, because I don't have Walnut Stain. Then, I used frilly trim from Tim's Holtz Lavish Trims and colored it with Milled Lavender Distress Stain. Thanks for taking a look!
