12 tags of 2012 - May by Tim Holtz

MAY 2012

This is my contribution to 12 Tags of 2012 by Tim Holtz. You can go on the linked site and see his instructions to make the tag.

I used Rangers  Adirondack  Eggplant for the background stamp on the tissue paper.

I found that I had some little flowers which I distressed with Spring distress colours. I then enameled the flowers by dragging them through hot melted utee using the back of the melting pot. I didn't have a spool to put them in so I used the stamp from Tim Holtz's Haberdashery "packet of needles".

Instead of using a key charm like Tim I used a flattened bottle top and cut out a circle from Tim Holtz ATC cards with the head of the lady from the pattern in the sewing room.

I always send something to my daughter who is living in London doing a Masters degree but she requested that I don't put them up my blog before she has received them. We have had a lovely holiday  during the recent hot weather, it has been so relaxing but now we're home and  I have got the blog up. So if your interested in what other bloggers are doing go to Tim Holtz site.


  1. Very nice take on Tim's Tag Carol. I like your innovation in using the bottle cap and love the way the blue of the needle packet really sets the whole tag off. x

  2. How clever and inventive you've been here Carol! I love the elements you've improvised with. I think I've avoided doing the tags because my brain might not make the link between what I have and what I don't have!!


Thank you for looking at my blog, comments are always welcome.
