It's May and time to play along with Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of 2013. Tim's AWESOME rub ons are the featured technique in this month's tag and the entire thing is paper crafting perfection.
As always I like to start with showing Tim's tag.

The Idea-ology Enameled Tags are amazing by themselves but add a rub on or two and it easily becomes one of my favorite embellishments. It is easy to age or change the color of the tags using alcohol inks as I did on this tag. On the rainbow tag-below- I didn't color the Enameled Tag; they look great either way.Paula Cheney makes using Distress Stains. My ribbons always looked washed out compared to hers and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what I was doing wrong...until last week. It all boiled down to the fact that I was being cheap. I was spraying the tag with water to saturate it and then I wasn't using enough stain. This time I misted the ribbon with only a little water- just to help the stain spread easily. I LOVE the way these look. Especially the rainbow ribbon below.
I do have two more to share so be sure to come back tomorrow.
Toss some glitter in the air.
