Tim Holtz 12 Tags - August - my 3rd post in 2 days!

When I saw the gorgeous tag Tim Holtz had made I was inspired to make this. The background tag was made using the 'faux leather' technique I learnt from Anita Houston's recent tutorial and then embossed with a floral folder. The shimmer is provided by generous sploshes of Perfect Pearls. The silhouette, I stamped with black Archival ink and cut out (oh sooh carefully) The frame is Grungeboard covered with picket fence Distress Stain. The flowers were made from burlap using Tim's tattered Florals die which I love, love love! The sentiments are Tim Holtz stickers. I love it when a new tutorial comes up each month, it is always an exciting day - thank you Tim :) 12 tags of 2012 August

Beauty of a tag, Anna! Great idea to run the faux leather through an embossing folder. I also followed Anita's tutorial so I may have to try that with some of what I made!

Love all the yummy texture in your last few posts and love the tag with a tag!
Thanks for entering my blog candy and you'll have 2 entries... one for you and one for Smokey!
Didn't know till now that you are in Hove. MY DD1 is in Brighton and used to live on Brunswick Terrace till she bought her house up on the hill in Hanover. We'll have to meet up for coffee when I'm down sometime!
