Oh my gosh, I love Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 October version! Of course, fall is my favorite time of year so the sights and sounds really speak to me. Here's what I took away from his tag.
I pretty much followed along but chose to make some substitutions based on what I have on hand.
stamps: used Trick-or-Treat CMS050, Mini Blueprints 5 CMS170, and Mini Halloween 3 CS140
distress ink: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
distress markers: Pumice, Black Soot
trims: linen ribbon
embellishments: created my own monocle using a fragment charm, Pumice Distress Paint; holiday token with Picket Fence Distress Paint and Jet Black Archival Ink; created my own alpha blocks using chipboard painted with Picket Fence and Iced Spruce Distress Paints and Sizzix Alterations Typeset alpha cut from black card stock
I was going to try this with another stencil and theme but decided to stick with the tried-and-true...this time.
P.S. While I am always flattered to see my artwork being pinned by others, to have a recognized artist such as Tim do so is quite a thrill for me; he recently pinned my September tag. Thank you, Tim! Pinterest has become such a hit...so much inspiration from all over the world regarding virtually any topic. I have to set a time limit when I enter that world! lol
