Tim Holtz’s Tags of 2014-June & MIA Seam Binding Ribbon

June 19, 2014 at 5:30 pm 11 comments

Thanks to the lovely Lou, I pop in and see what Tim Holtz is up to every now and then with his Tags of 2014. June’s tag is here

Beautiful isn’t it!
Rather than copying each time- I try and use one of the techniques and do my own thing.
He’s used a spraying distress inks on the back of a stencil and pressing them onto the tag kinda technique!! Check out how he’s done it in the link.
I did a version- I’ve created a ‘next step ‘card that I’ll post next time too.Do join in, it’s great fun!
My tag was in need of ribbon. Lou said she’d send me some which got lost. More postie problems our end.
She’s so lovely, she sent some more. Here’s what she sent


Isn’t it beautiful – classy and artsy. I was soo busy oohing and ahhing that I thought she'd simply coloured the ribbon already but I didn't really want to undo the tag to use it. 5 minutes later it dawned on me I'd not noticed the wrapped ribbon around the mannequin.
Now I need to develop my grungey side. I'm not sure I have one.
Grumpy? For sure.
Grungey? Less so.

See you when I've tried being smudgy! x
