(2015 c25) Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 April


For Today’s Tag I followed Tim Holtz’s technique for his 12 Tags of 2015 for April.  

Tim Holtz products used: for Background – Distress Markrs Stormy Sky, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord.    For flowers – Mowed Lawn, Forrest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.  

Other products used:  Mark’s Finest Papers – Stampset Amaryllis Definition 2012,     Technique Tuesday – Die Set  Home Circle Card (LOVE),  Spellbinders – Flying Beauties (Butterfly) and Corner Sprigs,  India Ink for splatters.

I stamped the butterfly first and masked it before stamping the flower, this way the Butterfly was on top.  I decided the butterfly needed some Pazazz so I used Glossy Accents to make it stand out.

    Oooh, love this tag, pretty colours and LOVE that gorgeous butterfly!!! 🙂

  3. What a lovely tag you’ve created! I really like how you used Spring images, yet gave it a unique color palette that gives it that great vintage vibe! The addition of Glossy Accents to the butterfly was a clever way to give it some added oomph. I also like the bit of shine that the ribbon at the top adds to it. Wonderful work and I’m so glad you shared it with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
