Well, here is my tag for May. I do not have most of the supplies Tim Holtz used in his so I did have to improvise quite a bit.
I used kraft tissue paper to cover the tag I cut with the Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplate die. I applied the tissue paper over DecoArt Mulpti-Purpose Sealer and then applied another coat of sealer on top. When this was dried, I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the top. I used 2 seperate stamps on the background but I was not pleased with the results so they are mostly covered.
I found a brown paper tape measure in a mini sewing kit and glued that on the right side. I add safety pins and a needle threader with a metal disk that I glued a thread label to. I added Glossy Accents to the label.
A piece of doily is added to the bottom left side. The dress form was printed from image on the internet. I glued a piece of pink lace and added a snap on the side. There is a pearl brad added to the top of the dressform. It has foam dots to raise it a little. The flower pot is a wood thimble with crushed kraft tissue and have tiny roses. The roses were painted pink with acylic paint. Additional thread labels were added behind the flower pot and under the dress form. There is also a needle with pink thread.
Rayon ribbon with touches of pink is tied to the top of the tag.
Hope you enjoyed this tag.
