Christmas in July ATT

UPDATE - Yesterday was the end of this contest - the tag with the most votes would be declared the winner. Drum Roll please ----- Yes I WON!!!! I am so excited to have won my first contest with ATT. The winner receives an autographed tote bag from Tim Holtz, Yeah!! and a bunch of "Tim Stuff". Oh, I can't wait!!!

For the Yahoo Group "All Things Tim" I made this tag for a contest they are having this month. You had to find one of the Christmas Tags that Tim demoed in 2007 and 2008 and create an "everyday" version of that tag using the techniques that Tim did, but with your own theme. My choice was Day 1, 2008. I love working with the masks and the Distressed Inks.

For my tag I used the Timeworks mask and Distressed Inks in Worn Lipstick and Broken China in the background. I distressed the edges of the tag and applied Walnut Distressed Ink. The butterfly and word "time" are Grungeboard, for the word I applied Worn Lipstick ink and Distressed Stickles. For the butterfly I embossed it with a paisley design with my Cuttlebug and then applied Straw ink all over and Walnut around the edges. On the wings I added Distressed Stickles in Worn Lipstick and Broken China. I added a gear and a spinner to the masked area to represent "Time".

I already commented on your tag on ATT, but I would like to repeat it here... : I like the combination of the colors with the pink and the blue.

The use of masks is great too : I have them too, but haven't used them very often yet. Maybe I should give it a try more...
