Simon Says Stamp and Show a Lord Tim Technique

Simon Says Stamp and Show a Lord Tim Technique. The background for this tag is shown on Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2012- April. I used archival ink (coffee) and the Floral Frames Texture Fades Embossing Folders Set by Tim Holtz which I went over with distress ink dried marigold and I used vintage photo to go around the edge. I stamped out "Love" "Wish" and "Dream" from Stuff to Say by Stampers Anonymous which I coloured with distress ink. I did the ribbon with lots of different colours of distress stains  to match the tag . The two butterflies I learnt how to do them on my Creative Chemistry 101 by Tim Holtz online course, but it is also in his Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 page 48.

I would also like to say thank you to the Simon Says Stamp and Show team for drawing me out to win the $50 prize. I have immediately been over to the Simon Says store and bought some Tim Holtz stamps that I can't get in the UK. Can't wait for them to arrive!!!!!!!
