Hi there! Hope you are having a great day! One of the many things on my crafty 2014 New Year's resolution to do list is to participate monthly in the Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014. I tend to collect / hoard so many of Tim's products so I figured this would be a great way to actually use them! With that being said, here's my take on Tim's January 2014 tag

A Valentine's Day tag for Scott:
I dusted off and used the Tim Holtz Angel Wings die as well as the Tim Holtz Mini Clock Key & Pocket Watch die to die cut metal foil covered grungeboard. I embossed the pieces with various Tim Holtz embossing folders then applied alcohol ink (a technique I learned from Tim :). For the background, I combined all of the following of Tim's products: a stencil, Distress Ink, rub ons, stamps, a ticket and metal trinkets:
Just curious, do you have any crafty New Year's resolutions? If so, do share! :) Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)

A fabulous take on Tim's tag Mona, I love it and I bet your hubby will too. You did make me smile saying that you collect and hoard Tim's things, that is exactly what I do and my New Year's Resolution is to use up more of my stash and open up those packets that I just look at and stroke.... sadly, I cannot resist all the new things coming out from CHA though..........

Perfect grungy masculine tag! Love all the gears and the metal wings! So creative! Thanks so much!

Denise van Deventer said...

LOL...love how you say dusted off the dies...I think we all have some things on our stash that need a little dusting off! But you really created a stunning tag and it really is just beautiful. One of my scrappy resolutions this year is to really use my stash and not buy as much as I normally do. It's just crazy looking at my stash and then still buying more. So that's my resolution. I started 2 weeks back by groing through my entire room and sorting out, giving away and purging junk. So I really did feel quite lightened by that and now it's to really make use of the stuff I have!!! ;-)
