Hi there,what a lovely sunny day it's been here today in my little corner of the world - hope its been the same where you are .
Fancy a coffee?Well I hope my take on the 12 tags of Tim Holtz- June 2015 will provide you with a caffeine hit!
A lack of some of the craft supplies meant I have had to improvise a little but on the whole I followed Tim's Tutorial which you can find if you click on the link above .
So here are the changes I made either by choice or necessity:
I spritzed my tag using Antique linen and I used Peacock Feathers and Stormy Sky Distress Ink for my plaid effect. Both Walnut Stain and Black Soot DI were used to ink the edges of my tag.
As I don't have the fresh brew die in my craft stash I had to consider other options and at first I was looking at using one of my other Tim Holtz dies but then I thought maybe I could actually create my own fresh brew cup with my own fair hands !! I had nothing to loose as my other dies would serve as a back up plan .
So like Tim I took the various surfaces n instead of using the Fresh Brewed die I created templates for the the various parts of the coffee cup n cut them out free hand. I then followed the rest of Tim's instruction to bring the parts together. I toned my circle in with my background by painting it in Peacock feathers Distress Paint .
It was a first airing for my bottle of mushroom alcohol ink n i do love the tone it gives to the silver star!
Though my Sewing Machine is ' in situ' it still needs to be set up so I hand sewed down the side of the natural burlap strip. I used natural jute to tie around the base of the cup and fixed an eyelet in place around the tag hole to thread a length of natural linen ribbon through. Taking a 'genuine' ideology tag I sanded it back and pinned it to the ribbon. To finish my tag off I mounted it onto a piece of brown card stock cut to size.
N that's it - my take on Tim's tag for June 2015
Thanks for stopping by today - always lovely to share your company.
Look forward to seeing you next time
keep on smiling
