August 2013 Tag inspired by Tim Holtz

I actually had one of the stamp sets used in this months tag challenge.  At first I wasn’t going to post this tag as I had seen a few others who posted theirs, and was very impressed at how they took the idea and thought outside the box.  I just followed the directions to a tea  and did my tag.  I feel  my tag is a little plain jane compared to the others.  I laid in bed and looked at the photo of my tag and decided it was post worthy. I like the work I did and loved how it turned out.  Now to play with some of the techniques I’ve seen yall do!

  1. Your tag looks great! It’s the same layering technique that Tim used. I don’t understand what’s to “second guess”? I say go for it….yours rocks!

  2. Beautiful tag! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I didn’ thave the same stamps just the miniature version so I had to improvise. 🙂

  3. Hi, thanks for you lovely visit on my blog! 😉

    You asked about the seattle hotel stamp. It’s from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz “Travel Labels” sheet. The pockets for my tags were also very easy to make: die cut three #8 tags and fold the lower ends up to build a pocket. Then tape them all together with washi or tissue tape, by wrapping it around once at the bottom and once at the top. Done.

  4. Love the tag! Thank you for dropping by my blog to see the tags I made. You asked me how I made the red car with the white walls. I stamped in Barn Door then colored the tires black. The white walls are etched out of the rubber in this stamp leaving them colorless. I covered the entire car and wheels with Glossy Accents leaving the “dirt” under the car uncovered. The Glossy Accents made the Barn Door look much brighter then it normally does but I did add some Vintage Photo to the ground to darken it up a bit.
    Thanks for the visit! Vickie

  5. I’m so glad to posted your pics, your tag looks great! If I’d had the right stamps I would have followed Tim’s demo too! Love how you’ve distressed your metal embellies. MMx
