Tim Holtz Tags of 2014 - November

Another month is speeding by, but for a change I did my November tag with plenty of time to spare!

As usual, I gathered what I thought I might need.

I began by using Tim's Distress Stain on the background of my tags, spritzing them with water to blend.

Then I layered his Dot Fade texture stencil over each tag and dabbed on Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to add a touch of shimmer.

I cut out corrugated cardboard using both his Tags & Bookplates and Tattered Leaves dies run through my Cuttlebug.

Next, Tim instructed us to tear up the cardboard to reveal some of the textures underneath.

Then ink them using his Walnut Stain ink.

I also sprinkled his Walnut Ink Distress Stain right from the bottle and spritzed them with water. I used the Tarnished Brass Distress Paint too by dipping a toothpick into the bottle and flicking it over my fingers to splatter on the cardboard.

Next I detached letters from the Ransom Alpha Parts set.

And painted them in brass.

After attaching the cardboard to the backgrounds, I added leaf details with a long brush and some Crushed Olive Distress Stain.

Since I didn't have the texture set he demonstrated with, I thought this would be a nice touch to bring out the leaf details.

I saved the oak leaf cutouts and inked them up in Forest Moss and Spiced Marmalade stains. I added even more orange with the Spiced Marmalade ink and again added details with Crushed Olive ink and a brush.

I outlined the tag with Walnut Stain and added two pieces of Trimmings ribbon.

Love the dimension and textures of this tag - even though up here in the Great White North the leaves fell quite awhile ago ...

...and there is snow on the ground already!
