Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - May

This month just flew by! I finished my tag for May this afternoon, better late than never. This month Tim created a tiled tag, see his blog for all the details.

I started by gluing pieces of rulers from the Collage, Laboratorie and Merriment Paper Stash onto chipboard and then die cut the mini heart. Next I embossed the word "lucky" onto a piece of chipboard using my new ShadowPress set. The rest came together pretty easily. Thanks for stopping by!

#CC3C - Distress Glitter Technique

So on to challenge #2, check out Linda Ledbetter's blog for all the details. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this challenge with a $25 gift certificate!

For my project I began by covering a piece of chipboard with patterned paper. I used a #5 Craft Tag as a template to cut the chipboard. Next I sanded and applied distress ink to the edges of the tag. For the letters I followed Tim's distress glitter technique on page 56 of his book. I finished by coloring a piece of linen ribbon with distress stain and there you have it. Thanks for stopping by!

#CC3C - Paint Marbling Technique

I'm a fan of everything Tim Holtz so when I heard about the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge over on Linda Ledbetter's blog I had to play along. Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring Challenge #1 with a $50 Gift Certificate!

For this challenge I decided to make a card. I got Tim's book, turned to page 43, chose a variety of distress paint and got creative. Thanks for stopping by!
