It was a Tim Holtz Kinda Day


Last week I was away for the entire week on business. When I arrived home Rick said you have a package in your studio from cropstop. Friday night I was way too tired to even open it. Yesterday with a cup of coffee in one hand I ventured into my studio ( which by the way while I was gone Rick cleaned it up for me... Thanks honey) anyway I found the package and omg there was the Tim Holtz texture fade embossing templates that I pre ordered several months ago.
First thing I knew I had to do was to make tags. The texture fades are A2 size so you can basically if using more than one style make more than one tag. In this case I made two totally different tags.
One for a masculine type of feel ( love tag for Rick's love gift) and a Halloween tag.
I used many of Tim's elements in this tag. The bird cage die, typwriter keys, texture fades, brads, etc. The stamp is actually from 7 gypsies.



Here are the two tags side by side. For the Halloween tag I used Tim's rubberstamps, and of course his grungeboard as well as texture fades. All of Tim Holtz products used were purchased from http://www.cropstop.com/ and if you spend over 30 bucks and use my coupon code CUT you can save ten percent off. Hope you enjoy the tags...more art to come as I am working on a canvas for a friend across this great ocean out there.
