12 Tags of 2013 with Tim Holtz-March

Here is my Tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 March Challenge.  I've been out of town and wasn't sure I'd be able to finish it in me the homestretch wonder LOL 

I don't have Tim's Bunny or Fringe Dies so I had to do some improvising.  I cut the fringe myself and it shows!  If you haven't been following Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 you should check it out on his Blog.

I'm not sure why my Bunny looks pink (perhaps the lighting in my craft room), because I colored him with Copper Distress Metallic Stain. 

The supplies I used are:
Tim's Tag and Bookplate Die
Tim's Styled Labels Die
Tim's Tattered Banners Die
Tim's Papillon Stamp
Tim's Seasonal Paper Stash
Tim's Trim
Distress Ink
Distress Stains

Thank you for looking!

Tattered Floral Challenge with Tim Holtz!

I was SO excited to see this Challenge from Tim on his Blog!!  Have you seen it? Have you joined in on the fun? If not, run run RUN to his Blog and check it out!!

I love Tim's Tattered Florals Die, in fact it was my very first Tim Die, the first of many ;-)  I chose to decorate a very special hat for this challenge. The hat was my Daddy's and he wore it all the time. I have such fond memories of sitting on the deck with him joking and talking, of him on the lawn tractor (wearing his hat) and waving at all of us as he'd do another pass across the farm yard.  Daddy is gone now and his hat resides with me here in the craft room. It is now dressed up and looking pretty dang good I think :-)

I cut pink, black and white papers up using Tim's die, spritzed them all with quite a bit of water to make the paper a little mushy for manipulation...
While they were still wet I started putting them together in layers using glossy accents to adhere them to each other.  Once I was happy with them I spritzed them with Ranger's Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl (my favorite!). 
I love the look of the flowers all scrunched up!  I tied white and pink tulle around the hat and glued the flowers on. Voila! 

Thank you for the Challenge Tim!
