12 tags of 2014--March

Tim Holtz is once again challenging us to make tags for 2014.  Here are his inspiration tags using a smudging technique.  The brighter tag is the first stamping and the lighter one is a second stamping without reinking the stamp.

I stayed with the birds/nest theme and created a tag of my own:

Materials Used

  • Distress Inks:  Wild Honey, Gathered Twigs, Ripe Persimmon, Crushed Olive, Black Soot
  • Hero Arts Black Ink
  • Stamps:  silhouette birds on branch--Inkadinkado; bird's nest--A STamp in the Hand; birds postcard--Magenta; Wavy Music--Stampendous; clear alphabet stamps
  • Tim Holtz 3 tin stencil; sun charm; ceramic bird button; tiny metal bird charm; science microscope slide of different bird feathers
  • ribbons in lime green, olive green, and yellow/orange
  • 2 small yellow flower/sun brads
  • Distress Markers
  • water spritzer
  • #8 manila tag

Anne, love your tags. Somehow you should get this info to Jo "The Texas Tag Queen". Might be a contest she would enjoy. Hope you win a bundle of goodies. CL
