I really must have needed the sleep. I didn't pop up until 3:02 this morning...a whole hour late. I love Tim's third tag though...assembly line type to really whip out gift tags...so cool. Can you believe he came up with the idea of taping two tags together like he did to complete two at once? That "man" really is a creative genius! I never even knew he did the Carol Duvall Show way back when. That is before I even knew who he was.He even had big hair back then...LOL!!!
For my tag I had to improvise as so many are...very creatively on their part I might add! I do not have ANY reinkers...go figure. I have never had any of my pads dry up yet so I didn't think I needed them. Mistake! I did have the foam though from last year's tag, but I didn't use it this time. Although, I thought I might use alcohol inks, I didn't. Instead I used Tim's other technique of embossing after applying ink to the texture fade. It turned out great...lighter than what I wanted but great nonetheless. It looks more vintagey that way anyway. I also decided to add more red hence the poinsettias. I had so much space to fill up, but I refrained, so not my style to do so, and it was hard to leave well enough alone. I was in awe of Tim's use of the curled twine...never even knew you could do that. How is it that a "man" knows so much about cool crafting tricks??? By the way, if you are loving looking at all the blogs and projects from crafters around the world that are on Tim's blog as much I do, please send Inlinkz a thank you via twitter (if you tweet). What an awesome service they are providing for all of us!
