Tim's tags!!!!

Wooohoooo!!!! I'm so happy I managed to find time to have a go at Tim Holtz' twelve tags!!! This is day two's tag, I missed out the first one for now as I don't have any of the items required so it will take some thinking about LOL! I'm really chuffed how this turned out although I think I need to ink them more as it still looks rather manilla compared to Tim's! My Stempelglede stamps came in handy for the swirls and splatters!
How cool that I happened to have the stunning pinecone branch stamp that Tim used!! (OK, I confess I bought it after seeing the tag because I just LOVE how gorgeous it looks all embossed like this!). I didn't create a custom stamp pad like Tim as I don't have any inks, only pads so I just inked the different bits with my pads.
I don't have a music stamp so opted for a text stamp instead and I also don't have the gorgeous metal bird he used so I made my own by stamping a Hero Arts stamp and embossing it with silver. I then rubbed silver and bronze luster rub on over the top to fill in the rest. Doesn't look to bad, and looks better in real life than this photo - no idea why it's so blurry! Oh and it's flying the wrong way but you can't have everything LOL! The Happy Holidays stamp is also from Stempelglede, from the Vintage Holly collection.
I inked the lavish ribbons the same as Tim and had a rummage through my stash for some beads to create some baubles.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! I have another two tags to share with you soon, I managed to make three in one evening!! Love how quick they are to make! x
