Mona Meet Tim

Today’s tag was created for this week’s Innovative Stamp Creations challenge - create a technique tag using one of Tim Holtz’s techniques from his blog.

Mona Meet Tim:

The timing for this challenge is perfect for me… You see I will spend all day Saturday and Sunday with Tim Holtz!!!! YYYYIIIIIPPPPPEEEEE I am so excited I can hardly stand it - I have been a huge fan of his for years and he is coming to a LSS and teaching 6 classes. Rhonda, my SIL and BFF, and I are spending the weekend there and taking all six classes. Just to show you why I am so excited here are samples of the classes that we are taking - Tim’s Ohio Classes. I am hoping to find all of Tim’s new stuff - my credit card is in for a work out!

Back to the challenge. I did not use a particular technique of Tim’s I used a bunch of them and his products:

Ink on craft mat and spritz (background of the tag)
Alcohol ink on fragment
Alcohol ink on transparency (butterfly wing)
Grungeboard (ink and metallic paste)
Metal idea-ology line
Tim’ Distress Inks

I tried to get a close up of the fragment and the wing but my camera just did not want to cooperate.
