Tim Holtz March 2013 Tag

Eeeeeeeeeeeee it's the start of another month!!! You know what THAT means!! Time for another Tim Holtz tag of 2013. Visit TIM'S BLOG so you can see his tag (and all the cool instructions that he provides).

Here's my tag for this month, I am pretty freakin' happy with how it came out if I do say so myself!

I started with a plain white tag and covered it with the striped DP. Then I distressed the edges of the tag and coloured it up with ink. Next I cut the oval and the bunny shape inside it (and inked that as well). Then I made the grass and the sentiment banner (distressed & inked those up as well).

The two pieces of ribbon I coloured with Distress Stains, that was fun, and came out better than I hoped (despite nearly setting the ribbon on FIRE with the heat gun). I even frayed the edges of the ribbon to give it a more distressed look, which is totally NOT me! I will usually cut a piece of ribbon repeatedly to get it not to fray...but in this case I think it works.

Here's a closer look at the grass and sentiment banner:

White tag, DP from 6x6 paper pack (My Mind's eye), Gumball Green core-dinatons cardstock (SU), kraft cardstock (the paper company), blue glitter carstock (recollections), Early Espresso ink (SU), crumb cake seam binding ribbon (SU), faded blue jeans & picked raspberry distress stains (Tim Holtz), happy everything stamp set (Lawn Fawn),bunny die (impression obsession), prima flowers petal pins (from Feb 2013 Scraptures card kit).

Thanks for lookin!!

OK, I so hear you on the ribbon - usually it drives me CRAZY to see carelessly frayed ribbon, but this is so most obviously CAREFULLY frayed ribbon, and that works beautifully with the layers of grass :) SUCH a gorgeous fun tag. And I love those pins!!
