Tim Holtz August 2014 tag

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all okay and getting ready for the weekend.

Thought I would show you the first of my August 2014 Tim inspired tags. This is the second one, I made it today, but I am showing this one first as its been done a little bit different whereas the other one I created yesterday has stuck more closely to Tims tag......if all this makes sense!

I am entering this in Tim Tags here.

Distress stains and inks,Tim Holtz stencil,grungepaste,Tim Holtz stamp and the wonderful dragonfly die. 

Unfortunately,you will be seeing a LOT of this have been warned. Seriously though,its amazing how many different looks you can get from it just by changing the materials you use. I die cut this one from cardboard and covered it in 4 different Tim Holtz tissue tapes.

Hope you like it

Have a great weekend everyone
