Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 March - Enjoy the Journey

Just popping in to share my version of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 for March. You can find the techniques and tutorial I used for the tag here. This is a challenge I love to participate in because I alway learn something new!!

First I laid down the strips of Tissue Tape. Since I did not have a combination of colors of Distress Paints that I liked, I created my background with a combination of Distress Inks and Distress Stains in Tumbled Glass, Salty Sea, Wild Honey, and Peeled Paint.

Then I added the gold highlights with embossing paste, gold embossing powder, and the Speckles Stencil.

Since I didn't have the beautiful butterfly stamp I added a metal embellishment. I used a piece of sticky back cork to cut the circle and then brushed on a light coat Tumbled Glass Stain to just blend the cork with the background.

I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix SHAPE STRIPS Thinlits Die


  1. LOVE this, Melody! You make me want to pull out my Distress Inks FUN!

  2. This tag is gorgeous!!! beautiful colors

  3. Very nice Melody! I just picked up the bead landing package of 90 gears from Michael's yesterday -- I've resisted so far -- I didn't want to turn into a gear head -- but I do have a son and making things for him is my excuse! :) Haven't done my March tag yet -- oh so late, but I'll do March and April together.

  4. Oh my word! This is amazing! I love this!
