Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (March)

For this month's tag I used the acetate technique and actually stamped the woodgrain directly onto the tissue paper before adhering the acetate.  The butterfly was cut using Stampin' Up's Beautiful Butterflies Die.  I copied the mosaic technique used by Tim and covered the whole thing with clear embossing powder.  All products used on the tag are Stampin' Up! except for the film strip at the bottom of the tag.
Here is the link to Tim's tag and blog post.


  1. I absolutely love your take on this tag so beautiful!

  2. Beautiful colours, I like that you used clear embossing powder over all,I will have to try that! Thanks for the inspiration

  3. Hi Christy: Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment about my Tim's tag dragonfly.Your tag has a very different twist also. The acetate background and your twine stitching really sets off your tag. Well done!
    Was looking at your other cards.I would say you have mastered the actetate technique!! Such beautiful colours for the sky on your tree card.
    I haven't done acetate tissue for quite some time - maybe I will give it a try again. Thanks for the inspiration!
