TIM HOLTZ TAGS - MAY 2013

Thank you for all your good wishes for my poorly tummy, but with something else joining it, I went to the doc's at 3.30 and was in hospital by 5.00!!!!  Anyway, tests and stuff done, but they still don't have a clue, but I am home and I am feeling much better than I was.  In fact, I was feeling well enough to play with my inks this aft, so I made my tag for May.  As always, you'll have to go to  MR HOLTZ' BLOG to see what techniques were used.


I have to say, I rather like this one.  I followed Tim's instructions for nearly all of it this time as I had most of the stuff.  But, I didn't have any enamel tags and so I improvised with a Cash Key and I also didn't want the metal greeting so I used a Tando Creative shape instead.  I wasn't sure about the bashed brads either and don't have his hammer, but I thought I'd bash them anyway and see.  I used a small burr tool from my Dremel and hit it with my own hammer.  It worked a treat, and yes, I've changed my mind lol.  I like bashed brads ha, ha.

Sorry to hear of your poorly tummy, if they couldn't get to the bottom of it, could it be IBS perchance? Wreaks havoc with my system! Anyway the reason for my visit, super tag, great when you have the stuff Tim uses isn't it? Your colours are gorgeous, I can never seem to get that effect. Love how your lady is peaking through secretly too. BJ

Love the face stamp that you have used on your beautiful tag & the distressed brads do look good ... I may have to give that a try next time.
