12 Tags of 2012 ... August!

Good Morning!
Look what I finally managed to get my hands on yesterday ...
I had been wanting this die for ages and finally managed to get the amount I needed for it earlier this week!
I shall be sharing something tomorrow with you that uses it ;)
Today I have my take on Tim Holtz's August Tag! I was absolutely stumped when I first saw the tag as I don't really have anything that he had used on his so 'improvise' was definitely the word when it came to creating my tag!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
TIM HOLTZ - 12 TAGS OF 2012 ... AUGUST
CC2 - PERFECT PEARLS MIST
(I used a mist that I created for the Tim Holtz C.Chemistry Class using Gold Perfect Pearls Powder & Distress Ink)
SIMON SAYS STAMP & SHOW  - PAINT IT UP!
(I have used Paint Dabber on the top right embossed part)
(RIBBON, FREE, BLOOMS)
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - TAG YOU'RE IT

As you can see I am definitely hooked on using Distress Stains to colour my Seam Binding Ribbon!




INGREDIENTS -
Tim Holtz 'Papillon' Stamp Set
PB Sentiment Stamp from T-Set '...Wishes'
Tim Holtz Texture Fades Die
Cuttlebug 'Script' Embossing Folder
Flowers from WOC
Tim Holtz Trinket Pin & Muse Token
Birdcage Charm from J&C Creations
Ribbon, Twinklets & Dew Drops from my stash


INKS USED -
Emboss Pad
Archival Ink - Jet Black
Distress Stains - Bundled Sage & Vintage Photo
Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain

Thanks for popping by!
HAPPY CRAFTING!

Your tag is beautiful! I love the book covers texture fade that you've used for part of your embossing. It's beautifully done. Love Tim's butterflies and the script embossing at the top. Those flowers are gorgeous, too! Thanks for sharing your beautiful tag with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
