Hello everyone!! Today I am sharing my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 October. I finished it last week, but didn't get a chance to post it until now.
Instead of a Halloween tag, I made an autumn tag, using lots of Distress Glitter. I love Distress Glitter, and I am not always crazy about glitter. Apart from the great vintage shine, I really like that it doesn't end up everywhere. I used a great new die here, the Window & Window Box, and the little owl, which also appeared on my wax resist tutorial the other day.
The background was made same way as Tim made his with Distress Paint, but using neutral colours instead (Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap). I stamped it with my favourite script stamp.
The window was die cut from grungeboard, inked with Antique Linen and covered with Antique Linen Distress Glitter. I used mica sheets for the windows, which is my favourite material to use for windows. You can get a similar effect with a transparency and alcohol inks. I first applied Glossy Accents to only the owl's body, sprinkled it with Tarnished Brass glitter and then applied Glossy Accents to the branch and ears, sprinkling them with Black Soot.
A piece of lace trim was used as a curtain and I adhered the window with foam dots.
The mirror stars were coloured with alcohol inks (Ginger and Espresso) to fit the colours of the tag.
Thank you for stopping by!
