Tim Holtz Feb Tag 2013

Hello Everybody!

I feel like it has been forever since I have posted.  My need for sleep caught up with me a couple of nights so   I didn't craft enough to have any finished projects.  But I am here now with a finished tag-Yay!

This is inspired by Tim Holtz's February 2013 tag which can be seen here.  I didn't have everything so I improvised.

He uses Distress Stain for the base of the tag which I have-but not colors close together.  So I had worn lipstick but nothing darker in the red family so I used a silver instead.  I didn't have the cool Queen of Hearts stamp so I used this one from Great Impressions.  I did try to do the same thing like Tim did.  I stamped on the tag, then I restamped the kids.  The boy is glued down and the girl is pop dotted.  I used the distress markers on them too (I only have 5, the basic set).  I love to color on the mat and pick it up with the water pen-so cool!

The hearts and Live Laugh Love Together is a Cuttlebug Embossing folder that came in a set.  I used Tim Holtz Coredinations paper and it sands nicely to show the color underneath.  I had Maya Arts twine that I put walnut distress ink on and tied it around the tag.  The charm is from Epiphany Crafts, and I have the punch, charms and epoxy square.  

The inside are Chit Chat words from the regular set.  I didn't know they had a Seasonal one so I will keep my eyes out for it.  I am totally addicted to typed words.  LOL :)

The tissue ribbon is Tim Holtz-and what a fantastic idea that is!  I will be using that idea again.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...tag your it! :)
