More Tim Holtz Inspired Tags

I loved Tim's techniques for his November tag that I decided to make a bunch of mini tags that I knew I would eventually need for gifts this year.

I started by die cutting my 15 mini tags out of a jumbo manila tag.
These are about 2"x 3" and I think this is a Spellbinders die.
I used a variety of Stampers Anonymous stamps for my backgrounds with Picket Fence Distress Paint applied with a brayer.
Now my favorite part - I love applying the Distress Sprays and seeing the 
how the paint resists the stain.

After applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges it was time to add the gold foil.
Finally after adding my watercoloured mini blueprint stamped images and
my tag were done!
I now have a bunch of tags ready to added to gifts this year!
I feel like I am one step closer to feeling organized.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
