Tim Holtz May Tag of 2013

I finally got around to making my Tim Holtz tag for May after a quick stop at Hobby Lobby. I was still in a beach state of mind after returning from there this past Sunday. 

This time I definitely added more distress stain to my craft sheet and love the way the colors turned out. It even looks like a stormy sky at the beach. :-)

Distress Stains - Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Brushed Pewter, Victorian Velvet, Bundled Sage, and Squeezed Lemonade. 

The palm tree is by Art Impressions. Also used Dylusions - Background Love in a few areas. 

I'm not sure if I like the remnant rubons. I placed it on the tag and rubbed the ones I wanted and than the whole sheet came off onto the tag...even the ones I didn't rub. I had to place the protective sheets all around the areas I didn't want on my tag. That or you would have to just cut around what you want and than rub it on. 

I do like the enameled tags. I added Cloudy blue and Pink Sherbet alcohol inks and than some Raspberry after adding the remnant words. 

I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. 

And for some glitter (cause I love glitter) I added Stickles Eucalyptus  around the palm tree leaves. 

So happy with my tag this month. :-)

  8. Your May tag is just gorgeous! I usually cut out my rub-ons (with the back protector sheet). That way I only rub on what I want. When the rest of the rub-ons start looking like swiss cheese, I cut them into more manageable pieces and staple the rub-ons to the protector sheets with the Tiny Attacher. Although, I love how your enamel tag came out!

  9. I love this tag...the palm tree image is way cool, and your tag is wonderful - great colors!
