Well, I decided to give another try with the Tim Holtz products and the 12 tags of 2015 challenge. I really loved how Tim used the words twenty one and then the number 5 for 2015. He's just so clever. :) I'm still very new to the Tim Holtz products and have only used them a small handful of times (even thought I've had them sitting in a drawer for over a year).
I actually used 3 different colored distress paints for the background (Evergreen Bough, Broken China and Pumice Stone) but it appears that only the Evergreen showed up... So I decided to add in a little Pumice Stone with the dot fade layering stencil and distress ink. I actually used the clockwork stencil too but its pretty hard to see. I think it's because I used the Evergreen Bough distress ink on that as well when I probably should have used the Broken China. Oh well. I chose to go with more of a silver theme than gold as I just prefer silver more. I used the botanical remnant rubs and the steampunk and phrases 2 stamp sets for the images. All in all, I think it turned out ok for only my 2nd one. I plan to participate monthly in the tag challenge but we shall see how that goes. I suppose I should actually purchase some tags instead of cutting vanilla paper lol. I'm not really sure what to do with the finished tags though... any tips/advice??
