Tim Holtz Tags - May

This month's tag on Tim Holtz's blog has been another exercise in inventiveness. I had none of the required elements so have had to wing it. I stamped the lady image (from a grab bag so I have no idea where it's from), added the fake cross stitches and covered them with an old paper pattern I found at the charity shop. It had a yellowed, vintage tinge to it already but I highlighted it with frayed burlap DI. I found the cotton reel images online and stuck one onto a flattened bottlecap with a covering of glossy accents. The dummy is a template from Lisa Vollrath's Go Make Something site embossed with a houndstooth folder and the stand has been fashioned from part of TH's hanging sign die. I made the hanger out of wire and used a Cuttlebug embossing border for the tape measure which I highlighted with black ink. The cotton reel is hand drawn with kitchen twine wrapped around and I made a little square box to mount it on to give it some dimension. I don't have a melt pot so I rubbed pigment ink onto the flowers and dunked them into UTEE several times. Some red & black ribbon finished off the tag. Roll on June!
