Embrace Imperfection


I used my Copic Markers to paint the vase of pansies; it was then cut out and added to the diamond stamped background. 

 It was fun to get it out and play with these stamps again. 
Tim Holtz chit-chat words were used on this card. 
Fabric ribbon was also used.

Paris and Beyond


Stencils and More! 
I created my one of a kind background using my Gelli Printing Plate with several stencils and plastic grid. 
Eiffel Tower die with embossing folder was added to the tag. Paris, New York and London was inked and embossed. 

Tim Holtz supplies were purchased at the Emporium.
Seam binding was inked with distress ink.
My new ribbon string was wrapped around tag to finish.

12 Tags of 2013 ~ September




Today, I made a tag following Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 for September tutorial. 
This is Tim's tag for September 2013: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-september/
I used distress markers, stains, paints, distress inks, chit-chat ideology, alcohol inks on bird, pen nibs, stickles, tag die and stamps from two different sets all by Tim Holtz, and then finished the tag using a flower and stencils made with my Silhouette digital cutter, leaf and seam binding from my vintage stash.
Thanks for looking!
