Tim Holtz Tags of 2013 - February

Here in Southern Ontario it's a long weekend (woot woot). Later on today tripod (my new nickname for yellow dog #1 as she is STILL only using three legs) and I are heading to Oshawa to see my parents and brother. But before we go, I wanted to share with you my version of Tim Holtz's February tag.  Here is a link to Tim Holtz's blog so you can check out his awesome tag & instrtuctions:

Here's my attempt at the tag:

I am really trying to use up stuff in my stash...I don't have a stamp that looks like the Queen of hearts, so I used another playing card. I didn't want her to look like she just came out of the pack of cards, so I sanded, distressed and inked her up a bit. I started with a white tag...can you tell by the finished product?? Probably not...

I really liked the cash key that Tim Holtz made for his tag, I tried something similar using some flattened bottle caps I got from GRAPHICAT STAMPS...just happens that the 1" circle punch fits perfectly inside the cap!! YAY!!

Here's a closer look at the cap:

I also liked how Tim Holtz made his ribbon from tape, so I tried that too with some washi tape I got in a SCRAPTURES CARD KIT a few months ago. I swear the hardest part of making this tag was folding the washi tape in half!!! Here's a closer look at my washi tape ribbon:

White tag (Michaels), Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso Ink (SU), washi tape, flattened bottle cap, Cherry Cobbler cardstock (SU), Early Espresso core-dinations cardstock (SU), Cherry Cobbler bakers twine (SU), Early Espresso scalloped tulle ribbon (SU), script ebossing folder, sandpaper, cuttlebug, dimensonals (SU) and Queen of Hearts playing card.

Thanks for lookin!!
