Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016
Happy Monday! Thank you for stopping by my blog.
This past weekend, I was able to spend several hours in my craft room. I decided to try one of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags. This will be my first time participating. This year, Tim is doing a "technique remix" with his monthly tags. He is going to use two previously demonstrated techniques on each month's tag. You can read all about it on his blog here.
I've been feeling a little "Valentines-y" (despite the fact that some of my Christmas decorations are still up--eeeep!) so I thought I would do some Valentine tags with his two remixed techniques: Industrious Metal and Chalkboard. I used the Tim Holtz Valentine Blueprint Stamp and the Collage and Dot Matrix Texture Fades. Here are the tags I created.
I didn't have any metal foil tape sheets but I did find a roll of foil tape on my husband's work bench so I thought I would give it a try. I rolled the foil tape on a piece of card stock and embossed it with the Texture Fades. I could have put the tape directly on the tag but I didn't think of that until it was too late. I then added some black Distress Paint and let it dry for a bit. I used a paper towel to rub off some of the paint. You can find Tim's tutorial here.
I then used Tim's blackboard technique (tutorial here) to stamp three of the images from the stamp set. I stamped them out twice and cut out the main image to layer on my tag.
I adhered all of the pieces together and added a few red touches. Here are some close ups of the tags.
