Saying Thanks with Tim ... Holtz June Tag of 2014

This tag is a little late.  I 'm playing catch up on my crafting and blog hopping :)  This is my take on Tim Holtz's June tag for 2014.  You can check out his tag and his step-by-step directions as to the techniques and products he used to create his amazing tag here


My tag is a little different.  I went with a little more intensity on the stenciled layer and then used white specialty stamping paper to really make my "Thanks" pop.  I love this little stamp because it allows me say thanks to so many of you, my friends, from all over the world.   You all have really helped me through some tough months by leaving me such sweet comments here on the blog or sent me encouraging emails.  This tag is dedicated to you!!  Thank you!

 Because of my intentional use of white on this project, I'm going to enter this over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge -- W is for White.  I hope you drop by and look at the Design Team's fabulous makes.  Wow!  White always seemed boring to me.  Not any more :) 

Thanks again to you all.  It has been a rich and colorful year for me with you all in my life.  -- Mary Elizabeth

I really adore this tag! You did an amazing job with the watercolor technique and the color palette you chose is absolutely stunning! Love the soft and energetic vibe it gives your tag. I also think your crinkly ribbon is gorgeous with just the right mix of different colors. I love the "thanks" spinner in the middle, which is a clever focal point. I think it's awesome that you're going back to catch up on the June tag and you've done it brilliantly!
