Here is my first of 12 tags of 2015 inspired by Tim Holtz.
His first tag is found here. I started with a manila tag and glued down crinkled vellum that was stamped using Distress Ink in Broken China and background stamp from Tim Holtz Papillon cling stamps. I distressed the edges removing some of the vellum in places.
The I layered Distress Paints fired bricks and antique linen with accents of picket fences Distress Stain. I used Tim Holtz Alpha Parts - Numeric pieces painting two pieces using antique linen Distress Paint, the other was covered in Sky Blue micro glitter from Jewel Glitter Ritz.
I tool four word beads that I had laying around and sprayed them using Distress Stain Spray in Faded Jeans, highlighting the edges in black. I also used the stain spray on the entire face of the tag adding brushed pewter as well to give the tag a sparkle.
To finish the tag off I added Crinkle Ribbon sprayed in both the brushed pewter and faded jeans and added a metal arrow embellishment.
