Be Inspired by Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags!
Happy December 10th!
I hope you had a great weekend!! This week, we have another fabulous challenge theme at the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge! What is it, you ask? Inspired by Tim’s 12 Tags!
Suzz had this to say:
I went back and spent time meandering through the beautiful tags from last year and tag twelve jumped out at me. I love the soft icy blues on Tim’s tag and the fragment doll with wing inspired me to think of angels. My tag started with a layer of tissue tape and I added color with a coat of white acrylic paint and blue dye ink. My stamped angel is the La Blanche Cherub, I love her pensive expression. I added a few flourishes in the background for movement. I finished the tag off with some of the Melissa Frances tinsel and Ideology Baubles. This tag will be used on a Christmas package of a dear friend.
Here is what Sandra had to say:
Last year was my first year of doing the 12 tags of Christmas and I had the best time ever! Everyday when I woke up, I had to look at the new tag. Thought about it all day and raced home from work to make it. It was such a wonderful rush and learned so much! My inspiration for this tag is day 1 of 2009, because I’m so mesmerized by the beautiful background with the Rock Candy Crackle Paint. For my version I did it in my Christmas home decor colors, which are lime, black, gold and a little bit of silver. So I used Shabby Shutter, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive Distress ink for the background. The Snowflakes are stamped with Archival Jet Black ink. The reindeer and holly are covered with Rock Candy Dry Glitter which is colored with Pitch Black, Lettuce and Citrus Alcohol Ink.
Ashli had this to say about her project:
When I saw Tim’s tag from May of this year, I was immediately inspired by his use of stitching on tissue paper. I just love the delicate texture this gives! To create my Christmas banner, I stitched lines down the tissue paper and then cut in between the stitching to create a chenille-like texture. Some Basic Grey papers die cut into circles were then stitched to form a garland. These colorful circles were attached to my little chenille pennants. A bit of Doodle Twine, Studio Calico Snowflakes, and hand written letters finish off this holiday decor piece.
