(2015 c33) 12 Tags of 2015 Tim Holtz

Tim Holtz’s May challenge for 12 Tags of 2015 was perfect for my family reunion Memorial Day weekend. Tim has a step by step of how he created his tag .Mine is a little simpler than his.   I printed tiny pictures of my grandparents and made tags to share with cousins. I used Tim Holtz ephimera and hardware.  I clipped off a single flower from a lazer cut sheet of flowers and colored to match the moulding paste dragon fly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I tried something new found on Jennifer McGuire’s blog today.  I followed her “FOILING”  technique #2 Heat Embossed Paper . First I colored the background white paper with  Artist Loft Pearlescent watercolors found at Michaels. Then I stamped  Water Effects 2 from Designs by Ryn with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear EP.  Next I placed a silver Foil sheet on top and ran the card face through my hot laminator.  Wa La instant foiled raindrops. I used the inside of the butterfly on another project, so I cut around the butterfly shape on the left over foil and placed it on top of the blue heat embossed Labels 6 shape and ran it through the laminator also.
