12 Tags of 2013 - May and SSS&S Inspired by





Hi everyone, I got my May ATC done today for The Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 and enjoyed the new rub on's technique very much. I love how the rub-on's retain the white paper underneath after the ink has been applied, it's a great way to create a background. As I've been inspired by this technique I'm also entering my ATC into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show which this week is 'inspired by'.

I used stamps from the TH Urban Chic Stamp set for my stamping and created my own plaque using a Magnolia heart tag that I heat embossed with white powder and then edged with black. I embellished with some Memory Box flower and butterfly die cuts coloured with markers.


Back tomorrow with a Craft Barn project.

Chris...I really like your ATC. This is such a cool idea; to do an ATC for each month! I really love your use of the rub ons and I didn't know that they would retain the water like that underneath! That looks so awesome! The colors are wonderful as is your design. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
