Feb 12 Tags of 2014.

Good Morning! Karen with you again.. I love the fact sometimes that the US is a day behind us, it means when I'm running late , I get an extra day to the month.. well sort of anyway..
I needed it this month..  I want to share with you my version of Tim Holtz's  February tag  for 12 tags of 2014.
This is Tim's version - a gorgeous tag ...

and here is my version.. I started off with good intentions.. I die cut and coloured my feathers.. and with every good intention, like I mentioned before I sat down and started at the beginning of Tim's step by step instructions.. things started to take on a mind of their own then..  and this is what I ended up with..  A bit different to Tim's but a few of the main elements of the tag are the same, the  stencilled background, and die cut and distress glittered feathers..

And as always you cant go past a few close ups..
I love the  combination of Distress inks and  Distress stain. For my background I've used Distress stain in Broken China, Pumice Stone and Frayed Burlap, and Distress Inks in Walnut stain and Pumice Stone.  The background detal comes from  layering stencil - Honeycomb.  and randomly  stamped  text stamp from the Papillon stamp set

I 've also used a few different bits of  idea-ology - Curio Knobs, Baubles, Crinkle ribbon, Label clips, and  Remnant Rubs- Words

The feathers are die cut  grunge board  using the Mini Feather and Ink Well  movers and shapers set. I then painted them with Picket Fence Distress Paint, and covered with Rock Candy Distress Glitter and inked the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by again.
Hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderfully creative weekend!
