Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2015

I found some time last night to bring out the alcohol inks and play along with the September 12  Tags of 2015 that Tim Holtz hosts every month.

Now I never have won (boo hoo), but it is fun learning new techniques and also re experimenting with old ones. Alcohol inks are not new to me and I enjoy playing with them. It is a messy play for sure though, so you have to be in the right state of mind.

 On his tag this month he used clear texture paste to create his embossed look. I did not have any so I just used an embossing folder and it seemed to work fine. I knew I would be covering my butterfly stamp with some fussy cut butterflies, so I was not too worried about embossing over my image.
Truth be told, it really did not look that bad anyway.

I have had some wire on hand forever, so I was glad to see another way to adhere my word bands. I love those word bands, I use them often.

So I hope that you like my tag, whenever there are butterflies involved, you know I will be playing along!

Thanks for stopping by.
