As always a The amazing Tim Holtz Tag

oct tag

I had so many ideas for this when I started and they all sort of flooded out of my mind when it came time to put the tag together.

So you get a scaled down more simple version. Using Mostly Tim Holtz and Ranger products with a little Fairy Dust glitter sprinkled in for good measure (actually I decided the tag lacked sparkle)

I was so excited when I saw this Months tag Tim Holtz is really bringing some colour and fun into the tag this month with what is a huge symbol in my life Butterflies. And better yet I actually had all the right product to do my own take on this months tag.

I am super happy with how it turned out, the only thing being that the pic does not show up the Alcohol Ink background technique,

When I saw the original tag I knew I had to have a play, making fluttering butterflies has been a staple of my crafting since I first began my tentative steps into the wonderful world of papercrafting. In fact I was heartbroken last year when my favorite butterfly punch (I own very few punches as I really do not use them much but this one I used a lot) died it was only $2 and I got a good 8 years out of it so not to bad at all anyway The New Butterfly frenzy die makes me very happy as it is much easier to use than a punch and gives loads of shapes and sizes.

So here is my Tag, I decided I wanted to use my New French Flight Framelits and Stamp Set and so below is my take on this Months tag :)

It is that time of the Month again :) Time to Share my Take on Tim’s Tag.

 

Have to say I really loved working with the Ranger Texture Paste, I have used impasto, modelling paste, gel mediumĀ and even Embossing paste all have their good and bad points but I have to say the Ranger Texture Paste is so quick and simple and easy to remove mostly cause it does not coat onto the outside of your stencils the way others do.

 

Anyway I did leave out one element and that was further stamping my tag which by the time I realised it was just far to late so I left well enough alone.

SYS2 Day 11 – Card 1

I had such trouble getting mine to stay flat after it was embossed no matter what I used to emboss on so I decided to embrace the imperfection and actually deliberately cracked it in lots of spots, added some distress paint to enhance them and kept the rest of the card super simple
