Amber made this tag using Tim Holtz’s Air Travel stamp set on the background, translucent embossing paste through the Rays stencil, and the butterfly from the Perspective stamp set as the focal point.
Anna-Karin did a journal page to welcome the new year. She made five different tags from watercolor paper and stamped them with various stamps by Dina Wakley, such as the Positive Women set. The images were watercolored with Dina’s Scribble Sticks.
Barbara this week take her inspiration from Steampunk style. She created an Etcetera tag using a lot of Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous and Sizzix products: Pipeline Bigz Dies, Gearhead Thinlits Die, Noble gent Set, Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Numeric.
Cathie created a tag with an embossed background using Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste and the Tim Holtz Ledger Script background stamp. The flowers are from the Tim Holtz Mini Bouquet stamp set and cut out using the Flower Garden and Mini Bouquet Framelits wafer dies.
Emma is thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day and created a tag full of love. She created a background with Distress Oxide Inks and then added layers to the tag using many Tim Holtz products, including Heartfelt die, the Regal Adornments and Quote Chips.
Kath made a Memory Tag Book using Ranger #8 Manila Tags, Distress Spray Stains and lots of Tim Holtz favourites – Stampers Anonymous Worn Text, Sizzix Alphanumberic Thinlits and Idea-ology Chatter Design Tape to name a few
Lols made a tag to attach to her brother’s 60th birthday gift! She started by white heat embossing the Tim Holtz Graph Background, creating a resist for the Distress Oxide Inks. She used a cute Goat from a Tim Holtz Hipster Stamp Set along with the coordinating die set as the focal point of the tag.
Macarena has tried a technique of building the background texture with lace, she colored it with Ecoline Liquid Watercolors and added a bit of Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste. She embellished her tag with Sizzix Ornate Frame and Idea-ologyPaper Doll.
