Reflections Stamping

I made this tag using the technique from Tim's book on page 65.
 Linda has the details on her blog Studio L3 using the technique from Tim Holtz  Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2. 
Also, this week Simon Says Stamp is the sponsor for a $25.00 gift certificate. 
I used
 Inks, stamps, distress stains, dies and ideology from Tim Holtz/Sizzix/Ranger. 

I used two tree die-cuts and off centered them just a little bit to the right. I came up with the idea last year when making Christmas tags.

12 Tags of 2012 ~ November

I made two tags for my 12 Tags of 2012 ~ November using supplies I had on hand. I love the tag Tim shared on his blog. 
I used Tim's distress inks, leaf and sprig magnetic dies, and some of his stamps. 
I didn't have his fall stamp set,  
I find myself wanting his Fall stamp set and his strip die.
