Tim Holtz September tag: Shanah Tovah

On the first day of the Jewish New Year,
I share with you my Tim Holtz
On Tim's blog you can see all the original
instructions for his tag,
but I made my own version.
I started with making the backround tag with
the following distress sprays: brushed pewter, peeled paint 
and iced spruced.

Next is to make the alcoholink background.
As I noticed my gold was dried (need to buy a new bottle) 
I choose touse the silver for this tag.

After splashing the ink on my craftsheet,
I did the direct to paper technique and

this is the result.

As i do not have the same paste, Tim used on his,
I took out the texture paste and added this with
a credit card.

When the stencil is off it looks like this.
When all was drie, I colored the paste with 
cracked pistachio distress ink.
I choose to get the Crazy Birds out for my tag.
Stamped themon manilla paper and colored them.
On top alayer of frosted film for glitter effect.
The apples are punched out of a piece of scrap paper
and colored with cracked pistachio ink. Added with
a foam tape to the bird. The bird is cut out with my new thinlets!!

The sentiment for this card is in Hebrew and means:
a Happy and Sweet New Year.
It is embossed in silver on gray paper to give the 
metal inpression.

Close up of the bird with the apple,covered with glossy acent.
Why the apples? On New Years eve we eat a sweet apple with
honey to wish each other a very sweet year,


Have a creative day!
