Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 - March

I was planning to work on Tim's March tag for 2014 last week when it was snowing and blowing but didn't get it done.  Between shoveling and making soup I was too busy. 

It's still too cold and still too much snow on the ground to think of birds, nests,  But we'll be  planning a road trip soon so I thought it would only be fitting to use the auto set from Stampers Anonymous.  Love the idea of smudging and 2nd generation prints...and what a great way to make use of residual ink on your stamp!
Here's what I used:  Stampers Anonymous 'Road Trip CMS128', Harlequin Layering Stencil; distress inks (Broken China, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Black Soot, Pumice Stone, Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn), Pumice Stone distress marker, Mowed Lawn distress paint; tissue tape; twine; ribbon; word bands

I can't decide which version I like best...which is your favorite?


  1. Hard decision ... I really like them both .... but I think I like the faded one a teeny weeny bit more.
    Such talent! I planned to start the year off following Tim's blog and making tags .... it just didn't work out :-(
    diane @ thoughts and shots

  2. Beautiful work! Love colours, stamps, the way you mix all!

  3. Tough choice...I think they both turned out GREAT but, I think I like the one on the right just a wee bit more. I love your color choice on the tags! Those stamps are awesome :)

  4. I think the technique works really well with these stamps. wonderful retro theme, with suitable retro colours. I like both tags but maybe like the faded one best. but only because it looks older. and i love old looking stuff ;)

  5. Came over here from Tim Holtz' March tag post. Really like your tag...and the colors! I like the brighter version best even though I am a vintage girl all the way. I love seeing the originality everyone uses in creating their tags from the inspiration provided by Tim.

  6. LOVE, love love your versions of Tim's March tag, Beautiful work and chouce of stamps !! :)
