12 Tags of Tim Holtz -September 2015


Hi Everyone 
I guess last month was a one off with my Tim tag making an appearance well before the the last 24 hours. Yet again this month I find myself cutting it fine and  just sidling my way in in the final hours - well as they say better late than never !! 
Tim's tag for September and how to create it can be found here so a I won't go into any great detail  of how I created my September tag - Tim does that way better than I instead I will highlight the things that I had to alter up  due to not having all the ingredients. 
The alcohol inks I used were Silver ,Wild Plum, Stream, Sailboat Blue, Stonewashed, Denim and I think I threw some Eggplant into the mix as well . I had created a few backgrounds before this one so the browny bits you can see in the photo are probably due to failing to clean my craft mat thoroughly -  shame on me , definitely not my usual practise .
For the tag, I used Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Spray Stain in the same way Tim does in his Tutorial but when dry I picked up some of the 'dripped' spray. I like the mottled effect  doing this creates
My craft stash seems to be missing the stamp set Tim used this month so instead I used the fabulous butterfly from Tim's Fairytale Frenzy Stamp set . 
I had to use Vellum instead of Frosted too which is actually duller than the photos portray.
I finished my tag off following Tim's Tutorial and just as I always do I thoroughly enjoyed the creative process .
Here's my finished tag I am entering  into  
Its the first time I have used the transparent texture paste and though I'm not  a 'glossy' girl its definitely something I will be using again, in fact  I already have but that's another post for another day ! 
So all that remains today is to thank you for stopping by  and as always your visits and comments are very much welcomed and appreciated . 
Hope you all have a good week and  hopefully see you again soon 
Take care

Oh yum - your colours are luscious, especially against that smoky grey background. Terrific take on Tim's tag, Amanda.
