Tim Holtz: 12 tags-April

Scroll down to see the new Graphicat sketch!!

Holy down to the wire Batman!!! Talk about just in time or what?! I wanted soooo badly to finish this one for April that I actually JUST finished it! It's pretty rare to find me crafting during the day, but like the true hardcore that I am, I have been shirking all household responsibilities to get this tag done! 

You can check out Tim's amazing tag HERE.

I've been thinking about what I wanted to make with this month's technique because I don't have the bird/branch die. I thought this cute little dress form would be fun though. I distressed the top and bottom with Walnut Stain, then poured on some Vintage Photo distress embossing powder to emboss. I just love how the distress powder has those fun little release crystals for that fabulous shabby look :)

I put a cute little lace skirt on my "girl" and gave her a washi tape belt, with a stick pin for a little fun ;)
I had some left over stamped Kraft Glassine from my card that I made yesterday, so I die cut it into a fun banner and stamped my sentiment on some Kraft paper and roughed it up a bit before sticking it to the Glassine. I thought the film strip ribbon would finish it off nicely...hmmm...I think I was right!! lol 

I think this is my favourite tag that I've made so far...I'm pretty stinkin' happy with it! Hope ya like it Tim!

Well I'm off to go clean the house...It's a bit of a mess with all the crafting going on here! But it was totally worth it! 

Happy Crafting Everyone!!
