Tim Holtz Inspired Tag-May 2015

Here I am again posting at the very last minute, even though I completed my tag the first week of May. Sheesh! Time has a way of getting by me, especially when I am chasing little baseball playing boys from field to field.

Here is Tim's tag for May:

I loved the burlap background, the layering of the ephemera, & the use of a picture. So I decided to try to include those elements in my tag.

Here is my take:

I did not have any self-adhesive burlap laying around, so I used an older Cocoa Daisy stamp to create a grid/burlap like appearance across the background of my Kraft tag. Burlap look- CHECK!

I used the Tim Holtz star stencil with colored embossing paste to add the stars. The ephemera bits are from older SEI tickets and 7 gypsies sticker sheets. Ephemera- CHECK!

Finally I added a picture of Carter from last summer's All-Star team. Picture- CHECK!

A little twine wrapped around the tag and stapled in place & crinkle ribbon inked/sprayed with Vintage Photo and Fired Brick ink and the tag was complete. 

I did try to add a few metal elements here & there, but I wasn't pleased with the arrangement, so I took them back off. 

I'm looking forward to Tim's tag for June, which will be up on the blog tomorrow.
