Toil & Trouble with Tim ... Holtz 12 Tags of 2014

I'm back today with my version of Tim Holtz's September Tag of 2014.   I won't go into details here because Tim has a great tutorial here on how he created his tag.  I love this tag because it gave me an excuse to use a recently acquired blue print stamp!!  I'm really enjoying fall and Halloween crafting right now.  So, on to the tag ...


I pretty much followed Tim's directions for the September tag.  The one thing that I did not have was a very light colored alcohol ink.  So, I used this Lettuce green color Tim's Latticework stencil.  Fun!


Here are few more close up pics of details of the tag:






One last picture of the entire tag.   Hope you had time to create your own version of Tim's tag this month!  Have a great week!!  -- Mary Elizabeth

Hi Mary Elizabeth, Thank you for your comment on my tag. I have to say your tag is absolutely full of gorgeousness. So love the vibrant lime green background, I tried with that colour and it didn't work for me but yours looks great. The flowers are amazing so pretty and I love the autumn colours you have used.

This is FABULOUS! I really love the patterns you chose to stamp on the flowers and how they tie in so perfectly to the Halloween theme. I also adore the way the color palette is arranged and how you've blended everything so beautifully. This is a stunning tag which earns a huge KUDOS in capital letters from me!
