Tim just continues to freak my freak! Day 6's tag with the Branch Tree antlers and today with the tattered floral poinsettia. I had to slap myself in the forehead and say "now why didn't I think of those", and then I came to the realization it's because I don't have Tim Holtz's brain, that's why..lol But seriously did anyone else think of the antler trick?? Even better it was a conscious thing and not a happy accident. So like I said today is all about the tattered floral poinsettia, his tag is simple stunning (I'm going to run out of adjectives to describe his tags by the end of 12 days) This is what his tag looks like:
Tim's Day 7 Tag
I was just tickled that Tim used this die, it's one of the few that I have. Then came the kink...no sticky back canvas or colorwash. Here is what I did have though: An old canvas apron that just happen to be white, some distress ink, perfect pearl mist, and spray adhesive. I cut the apron to size, sprayed the back of the apron and grudgepaper with adhesive (tada homemade sticky back canvas, I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with that one) and put the two together...worked great. Then I inked and inked and inked some more until I got the color I wanted then sprayed it with interference red perfect pearl mist. I did the same for the leaves, except I didn't use the tattered leaves die I used one that I had made by cuttlebug. For the rest of the tag I followed along with Tim's instructions, this is what my tag looks like:
