12 tags of 2014 September

Hello all! In the very last minute, here is my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 September.

Instead of using the face of the woman that Tim used, which I stamped on a canvas posted yesterday, I decided to make an autumn tag. I used the Harlequin stencil for the alcohol ink background, but you hardly see it through the stamping and rub-ons.

The leaves were die cut with the Autumn Gatherings die and stamped with an alphabet background stamp. I liked the faded effect of the technique.
The gold mixative gives a great shine to the leaves.

It is always fun to use rubs, all these small words are favourites of mine.

Thank you so much for looking!

Happy stamping!

  3. Wonderful take on the September tag! The background is subtle but adds to the depth. Nice fall feeling.

  4. This is a brilliant take on Tim's tag, the tree looks fantastic - great idea! Anne x

  5. This is awesome! I love the alphabet stamp on the leaves idea. I never think to give something that little extra touch. It adds so much.
