12 Tags of 2015... September tag

Tim Holtz’s September 2015 tag is gorgeous! I love following his tutorials and learning new techniques. Join in the fun here.

I’ve been waiting for my order to get started on this month’s tag and it arrived! It was so much fun trying different alcohol ink color combinations and seeing the results. I’m glad I ordered two packs of alcohol ink cardstock so I still have some left! Tim Holtz idea-ology frosted is really cool to mold and shape to create special effects. I have never worked with it before but I will be including it in future projects.

 The front of my tag background was made using hickory smoke and tarnished brass distress spray and on the back of the tag I added picket fence distress spray to the mix.  I used the gothic THS026 layering stencil, the butterfly from Tim Holtz’s flights of fancy clear stamp set css25856 and the Sizzix lady with hats die set 657854 on this tag.

I would also like to join the following challenge: Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Die Crazy.


  1. Gorgeous inking and details! Love the striking alcohol-inked color combo on the tags, Sue! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Die Crazy” Challenge!

  2. Beautiful take on Tims tag! I agree with you about the AI paper. Fun stuff to work with. Your colors are awesome sauce! ~Niki
