Tim Holtz May Tag 2012

Today I finally made my first tag of the year that Tim Holtz is sharing on his blog, well I cheated a bit to get my "May Tag" done and used the "Kraft" Paper Stash Collection for my background. On Tim Holtz blog if you go there he show how to do it with tissue paper which is a very clever idea. So to begin with I cut my tag from the paper and stamped it with the "Sewing Form" from the "Seamless Experience" Stamp set. I then distressed the edges with my Distress Tool and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs.
Next I got out my "new" favorite tool, some Ultra Thick Embossing Powder and mini roses.
I stained my mini roses with Fired Brick and Scattered Straw Stains to give them a vintage look.
When they were dried I dipped them into the Melted Embossing Powder. Allow the excess embossing powder to drip off and set your roses to one side to dry. Also, don't throw  the left over embossing powder away, just unplug the melting pot and place the lid on the remaining liquid until the next time, it will save you some money.
Here is what the roses look like once they are dry, you may have to knock a bit of clump off from the embossing powder being to thick.
Finally a close up of my little flower pot. I wrapped an antique spool with brown twine, added a safety pin to the front and glues all of my roses randomly out of the hole. I also sewed the measuring tape to the bottom of my tag with my sewing machine before gluing the spool to the front of the tag. Add a hanger and a small metal embellishment, your stained and crinkle ribbon and walla you have a fabulous tag made all thanks to our friend Tim Holtz and his creative genius. I hope you try to do at least one of his tags this year, they are always so fun and fabulous. Hugs Pammejo
