Tim's 12 Tags - May

Hi blog friends!  Well, it's May already and, amazingly, I'm managing to keep up with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013.  I've made a decision to try to reproduce Tim's tag as far as possible, concentrating on the technique he demonstrates each month.  This month I really, really like the way the tag turned out, although I will admit it was more by luck than judgment!

The stamps I used were from La Blanche (the lady) which, quite honestly, I made a bit of a bodge of stamping by working on an uneven surface (yes, I do know better!).  The rest were free covermounts on Creativity magazine.  I used Rusty Hinge, Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door Distress Stains with a smidge of Faded Jeans, and the film strip I printed onto acetate.

And there it is, job done.  Thank you for visiting, you're always welcome!

Crafty hugs,

Keren

You should be pleased Keren because it is beautiful, I love the colours, the way you have added the rub-ons, the design at the top and the way the lady has been stamped - she looks quite mysterious. A wonderful tag! Hugs, Anne x

Your comment about "knowing better" made me laugh because I'm glad I'm not the only who does stuff like that! I think your tag turned out beautifully.

Hi Keren - I've joined in with Tim's Tags this month and like you had fun trying to get as close as I could to Tim's design with the supplies I'd already got. Love your interpretation, your colours work really well together and I love it that you've used your freebie stamps for your background images. Looking forwards to the next challenge - although since this is my first one I suppose I should catch up really! MMx
