Distress Tag


Hello Friends

I am back with another tag today :) I love getting inspiration from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2014  So today I actually decided  to play along. I am not fully aware of the rules as I can't seem to find any on his blog. So I used his tag as inspiration and did my own thing as always :)  

 I don't own a lot the items he made his tag with so I totally improvised and just used what I had. I am trying not to buy any new crafty things in the next few months and just use what I own. As I have way too much craft supplies.  I used Tim's  layout as a guide and used completely different products. It looks NOTHING like his tag at all apart from the layout a little :) 

Tim used tissue tape and paint to create a collage background  none of which I own. So I ripped up some newspaper and glued it to the tag to create the print background. Then used Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass & picked Raspberry Distress Inks to colour it. 

Next Tim used grunge board, cork and mirrored card. Which again I don't have so my take on his design was using stamps and rhinestones :)

 I used  paper flowers and distressed them instead of the pine cone die Tim used. I also distressed some lace and glued it around the bottom of the tag before attaching the flower. I then tied my charm with some black ribbon. Finally I stamped some butterflies and coloured with the same inks to give the tag some more definition.


This is totally not my usual style of crafting. But I love just trying new things and really liked the way it turned out.  I love experimenting with new techniques. I hope you enjoy my tag and find some inspiration to create your own.
