For the final month of 2012 Tim made two tags for us to be inspired by. And for once - unbelievably - I had everything he used! The first tag featured layering a stamped image. For the word JOY I have two mirror products, one is Tim Holtz's the other is by Darice and I picked it up at the Gary Burlin booth at the stamp show last June. I decided to try Tim's product just to see how it compares. It is a little thinner and it has an adhesive back. The Darice product can crack because of its thickness and I had to use tacky glue to attach it to my project. All in all Tim's product is MUCH easier to use.
The second tag was heavy on die-cutting. The only things I did differently is I glued 3 rhinestones in the center of the poinsettia for extra bling and I embossed the head of the brad with a patina red embossing powder.
I'm a bit sad that the 12 Tags of 2012 is over. I hope that Tim decides to continue the monthly tags for 2013. I have learned so many cool techniques this past year - many that have become favorites that I use regularly.
