March 12 Tags of 2013 with Tim Holtz!! =)

Pin It

What a FUN Spring Color Palette!! I was able to play along with the Ranger Ink and Tim Holtz March Tag Challenge for 2013!!
I decided to combine them because they seemed to go together perfectly!! I took a Ranger Inkessentials Manila Craft Tag Size#10 for my base and added a fun floral patterned paper from Crate Paper ontop!! Then I took the Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and layered the whole tag with it!!  I love this look because its so transparent that you can still see the paper pattern underneath. I then die cut a label die from the new crackle TimHoltz/Core`dinations paper and the traced one of the Large Easter Bunny shapes in the center of the label and cut it out!!  I wanted the cracks to show  up more in the cardstock so I covered it with Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade then went around the edges with Walnut Stain!!  I took a piece of cardstock that was large enough to fit behind the bunny and covered it with scor-tape then wrapped Tim's tinsel ribbon around it and attached the label with the bunny cutout over it!!  I colored the tinsel with some lavender alcohol ink and placed it ontop of a kraft on the edge doily cut out by Tim Holtz!!  I took the on the edge doily die and created a full doily by cutting on side of the paper an then flipping it over and die cutting the other side after I lined up the doily pattern to match on each side of the die cut!!  I then covered it with Helmar's Gemstone glue and covered that with the Dry Rock Candy Stickles Glitter!! I LOVE the old and vintage look it gives to the doily!!  I then cut a 11/2 inch green crackle piece of cardstock and used my trusty tonic scissors to cut thin blades of grass going in different directions on either end and meeting in the middle to add more interest to the grass!!  I then added peeled paint and mowed grass distress inks to the piece to add dimension!!  I wanted to add some eggs in the grass and theses eggs by My Favorite Things were perfect!! I die cut several from kraft paper and then stamped with white pigment ink to added a fun pattern to each of the eggs!! I then colored each of them in with my watercolor pencils because I wanted a little bit of color!! I attached them throughout the grass and I LOVE the look they add!!
I then cut out a Tattered Banner ans some of the Carnivale Letters and added it to the top of my tag!! I added my ribbon and twine and my tag was finished!!  Here are some pictures of my finished tag!! 
I plan on using it as part of my Easter Decor on my Side Board along with all the rest of my Easter  decorations!! 
 I decided in the end I didn't like the Easter Banner!!  What do you think!??  =)
