I'm Obsessed!

Ok, so how many tags can I make? I think I mentioned that I took the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry Online Class  and I just can't stop making tags!  I still don't have all the supplies but have been able to take some of the techniques and combine them for crazy fun results, and I still have a few pages to go until the end.  So, here's my stash......

I have also made a couple of cards using the tags.  The first one has a tag using some Distress Stains for the base colors.  Then I stamped a few images on the tag and used Distress Inks rubbed on the tag to add depth and more color.  I added a little dimension for the birds nest, some twine and then the chipboard bird with some Distress Stickles.

This last card I want to share has Distress Stain on the tag, then I stamped a few small images in black on the tag.  Then I selected an embossing fold with numbers to add the dimension. Using a clear embossing ink I randomly rubbed it over the face of tag and sprinkles some gold embossing powder over the embossing ink.  I was careful to make sure I didn't have too much powder on the tag, so I used a small brush to remove some areas before heating.  After the tag cooled I rubbed a few Distress inks over the card for more depth.  The hinge is a pre-cut Grunge board shape and then covered it with Black Soot Crackle.  Adding a few more embellishments and sentiment and I have a fun masculine card.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a Creative Day!
