Tim Holtz Tag....

....well sort of!
This isn't actually anything like any of Tim's 12 days of christmas tags, but I was inspired by Tim's tags to go make something along similar lines. Most of the stamps and collage image are by Inka, but as an homage to Tim I have used the grunge alphabet in the background. This is an absolutely gorgeous stamp that I recently received as part of my prize for winning the craft stamper ATC competition (the prize was provided by The Fruit Pixie).

To make the flower I used Inka's mirrored poinsettia stamps, this meant that they did not line up when I place one on top of the other giving a more realistic effect.
since step outside the box saturday has the theme to do a "Tim Tag" this is my entry.
I just realised this fits with Saturday's workout theme as well


  1. This is a very different style for you I think... darker and more layers. But recognisable by the hint of Inka :0) You received your prize quickly! Great it was a decent one worth having...its a very large stamp that one. What else did you get?

  2. fabulous tag Joanne and thank you for my lovely christmas card - the tag was beautiful - it shimmered all gold !

  3. I really like that layered, antiqued style. I have been meaning to play around with that style, but haven't tried it out yet. But it sure looks inviting!

  4. Wonderful Tag.
    Brilliant background and cute image. Lovely.

    Thanks Joanne for playing this technique on SaWo.
