12 Tags of 2013 - May

Hello everyone,

Another post, but this time a challenge on the Tim Holtz tag of the month May. Loving his products, but I don't have all the products he used for the tag of May. So it is a bigger challenge to be creative enough to his art. You'll be amazed buy the products I used, hèhèhè. Here is my tag for this month:

Products used:
Adirondack alcohol ink 'Caramel', Adirondack alcohol ink 'Steam', Glimmermist 'Bubblegum, Glimmermist 'Sweet clover', Dylusions ink spray 'Squeezed orange', Dylusions and Bubblegum pink' and water (of course).
I also don't have the enamald tags so I used a methal embellishment I found at a shirt I bought from American Today (most shirts of them have those metal). You will find these methal embellishment on the label at the inside of the shirt. They must be taken off if you want to wear your shirt in a comfort way:-) I think most people throw them away. I pierced a hole in the tag and I used a brad to fasten the embellishment to the tag.

Two more brads used to fasten the faux methal tag. I welded and cut out a tag from the Art philosophy cartridge. I used a Close To My Heart 'chocolate' ink stamp pad to distress the tag. Numerous rubber stamps from different brands are used s.a. Vivalasvegas, Dark room door, Hero Arts and Rubbernecker. I used rubber stamps instead of the rub ons. Instead of the film strip ribbon I used washi tape. I do not own this washi tape, but I recycled from an envelope that I received from a swap partner. Washi tape is easy to take off, so I recycle a lot of washi tape from envelopes I receive:-))


  1. Thanks on the "recycling tips". A lot of time I find it wasteful when I have to throw things away but have no idea on how to reuse them. Glad I read your post here ;)

  2. Love your version of May Tim Tag!! You are so right- his stuff is great but he keeps using stuff my local stores don't carry! It becomes quite the challenge to improvise but you make improvisation look awesome!
