May is here and this means that Tim Holtz has made his May tag.
I did follow his tag pretty closely this time - hard not to when I actually have the stampes he used....
I stamped my images onto kraft wrappingpaper and curled it up before gluing it onto a tag. I stamped both images in black, the bg image I then went over with a white watercolorpencil and the dressform image was coverd with glossy accents.
I used a strip of tissuetape and added some numbers to them and then handstitched around the egde of it. My metal tag is just a round metal plate, I stamped the image onto some paper and glued it onto the metal and attached it to the tag using a safety pin.
My spool is plastic, but I did emboss it. Not very sucessful because the plastic melted really fast... then I wrapped some jute around it. I don't have a melting pot nor do I have UTEE, so I covered my flowers with Glossy accents and I think it gave me about the same effect. I added some tulle behind the spool and glued it down.
Thanks for stopping by!
