Hope your weekend has been exciting. Today, I am posting my very first Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 inspired tag. I had fun using lots of my "Tim" products to make this tag for September.
I don't have any of the new Layering Stencils yet, but I love cutting stencils with my Black Cat Cougar from That's Scap, Inc. I layered six different stencils on this card, and added even more layers with stamps. The text in the corners is from my newest set, Apothecary. I have been wanting this set for a while, and am really happy to have finally added it to my collection. The "fragile" stamp is from the "Little Labels" set, and fits perfectly on the label sticker. I am loving my new "coffee" colored Archival ink pad.
I have to say, I love having all of the colors of Distress Inks when I'm working on any project, and this was no exception. I really want to work on adding to my Distress Stain collection as well. I have fewer of these than I would like. I felt lucky to be able to pull out a few light/bright colors for the base layer of this tag.
I finished off the tag by Distress Staining some bias tape, and busting out my Type Key charms. Yes, I have been hoarding them. They are almost too awesome to use. I added a little jewel and a bead, and pinned them all on using a Trinket Pin.
I had a lot of fun with this tag, so much, in fact, that now I want to go back and catch up on all of the others. It may be a while before my family sees me outside of my studio!
Have a terrific week!
