Swirly Tag!

Hello everyone! okay, so i know on everyblog post i write, i mention the name " Tim Holtz" now to clear somthing up haha i know it sounds like im actully OBSESSED with him haha. but im not, no i just grab soo much inspriation from his project's and use his products because they are just so fantastic!

This tag im entering on the simon says stamp blog. i'll probably be creating another project from them as well but i though this was a perfect tag to enter.

ive been busy the last few days creating a few new tags to share with all of you. i recently purchased the sizzix bigkick which is my first die cut maching and im loving it because i can now used the embossing folders and the tim holtz bigz dies which i love everyone of them and cannot wait to start collecting. i have purchased the caged bird and tattered floral bigz dies. i love them soo much;) cant wait to start creating with them. For this tag i tried out the set of embossing folders i bought which are the ones with the overlapping circles ( which i use here )

I used dylusions inks to create the background then i used black soot distressing ink to tone down the color then i embossed it.

i sanded the embossed surface down a little bit to look more distressed then i just added some embellishments

Thanks for reading:) make your day a good one:)

  1. Lovely shimmery colors which show up beautifully on the swirls! Glad you joined us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!

  2. Hi Kayla! Thanks so much for your sweet comment you left on my blog regarding the Melt Art Mania project. Good luck on the random drawings! I also wanted to comment on your tag. It's awesome! Very cool blend of colors and embossed background. I like the baker's twine wrapped around it and Tim's filmstrip ribbon and the journal tickets that you've added as embellishments. I totally "get" how Tim inspires you. He's just that kind of a guy and his products are amazing to work with! Have a great weekend. <3 Candy
