Tim Holtz May Tag 2013

Okay seriously, Tim Holtz' Remant rubbings are the best out there! I kinda gave up on rub-ons. I used to think it was me but then I started finding out other people were having the same challenges, until Mr. Holtz posted his May Tag Challenge  I had picked up a pack to try them out, since his products are very high quality, why not? Well let me tell you these are not your 1995 rub-ons, his has some body to them, a nice finish and they actually come off the backing paper with out having to rub for 10 minutes and then only get parts of it. I highly recommend you give them a try!

So here is the tag I made for a woman who won the Adirondack Refillable Pen on our Ustream show:
 I used the Texture Fades to emboss a #10 Ranger Black Tag, then attached it with the Tiny Attacher to the sign hanger die cut from Grunge board.  from the holes I hung the #8 tag with jump rings so she could still use the underside of the tag for hidden journaling.
 I used a little Rock Candy Distress Stickles to add a little sparkle to the chandelier stamp that I hung off the bird on a wire stamped image.
 I did not have any of the TH enamel tags so I had to get a little creative and make my own. Using a fragment, paint it white with TH Distress Paint, Picket Fence, wait until it is completely dry!!! Then take Black Soot Distress Paint, swipe edge of fragment and wait for that to completely dry!! Then rub on the Remnant you want to put on your tag and cover with Glossy Accents. When dry attach with a fastener.
 I stamped a few more images from some of his Stamper's Anonymous stamps (I put birds on it because I actually made this on "Put A Bird On It" Day). Oh yeah, I also added a clock to the sign holder and attached the spinners with a fastener.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my tag as much as I had fun making it. I hope the recipient likes it! Go visit http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-may/ and definitely give the Remnant Rubbings a try!

  2. Beautiful tag! I have to take your word on the "rub~ons"...I certainly would not ever go near them again if you hadn't said the were worth it. I dig the enamel tag, "tell your story" that you made...soooo clever!
    Looking forward to your next stream Johnna...I always have a good time at your home. <3

  5. First off I adore the little camper on the top of your blog! I have friends who go glaming which is their version of glamour and camping and they would kill for such a cute little trailer. The creative process you went through to create this piece is so cool - love that it's attached to the black tag! Congratulations on being selected a May winner!! Well deserved.
