I am participating in Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of 2013. Here is what I came up with for March.
I decided to stay as true to the instructions this time as I could. I couldn’t find the cute little bunny die cut that Tim uses, so I substituted a flower punch instead (by McGill). The fence punch on the bottom is by Martha Stewart. I also had trouble finding the grass die cut that Tim uses so I just cut the grass with some scissors, and that seemed to work fine.
I ran some color core card stock through a Sizzix embossing folder to give a little extra color. I took a piece of wire and wrapped it a few times to add some curls to use as a flower stem. I adhered it under the ribbon with some Arleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue. I don’t usually use Arleene’s on such a small project, but I was very happy with the result. It is definitely stuck!
I also don’t have any little metal flowers, so I made some using some regular kitchen aluminum foil and a flower punch. I crinkled the aluminum, adhered it to card stock, and punched a flower. Then I painted with the new Distress Paints. I’m really starting to fall in love with this inky paint. I then sanded the flower to let some of the aluminum show through. Here I am making the leaves for the stem of the flower.
I also didn’t have any tinsel that Tim uses in his background, so I used some Flower Soft. The words are by Teresa Collins.
I think this is the most dimensional tag I have ever made. Lots of layers. I like how it turned out. Thanks Tim!
