Tim Holtz Tag Challenge - February 2013

Yet another month almost behind us and I'm just about in time with my February tag.
All I had in my stash was the Fired Brick Distress Stain which resulted in even more improvisation on this months tag. In the end I didn't use the stain because I got a very streaky effect when applied over the Festive Berries Distress Ink that I used as the tag base. Instead I used Fired Brick Distress Ink.

I knew the miniature pack of playing cards I bought in a charity shop would come in useful one day. I photocopied the Queen of Hearts twice, cut out the Queen from one and coloured any white areas with alcohol pen and stuck her on top of her sister for a 3D effect. To say that folding the tissue tape in Tim Holtz style was fiddly would be a gross understatement!

Had a look at TH's tag and still think yours is far better - don't think I really like TH's very grungy style!! Your tag is much softer but still colourful and love the bottle top addition, also prefer your Queen of Hearts - my DH cursed me for using an old playing card in a craft project!! It was possible to find miniature playing cards in Christmas crackers and I have some somewhere, if only I can find them!!
