Christmas Tags a al Tim Holtz




Our last challenge for this calendar year at the Creative Card Crew is anything goes. I have long admired Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas and decided to give them a whirl. Should have been a piece of cake, right? After all, I DO VINTAGE. It's my favorite and a think I am pretty good at it. So why did a struggle so with these tags? Maybe because I was running behind in everything all weekend and I left this DT assignment until the last minute. Normally, I would have fussed more, or re-did some of the elements or backgrounds, but I was totally up against my deadline. So here are my first two attempts at tags a la Tim Holtz. I say first two because I know these won't be my last. I really love his style and will definitely be working to bring more creativity to my tags - might take awhile, but is sure to be fun.
When you stop by the Creative Card Crew, you'll notice that we are running a DT call through January 5th. Would you like to be a part of this talented group? If so, just enter the challenge and type DT Call in your comments. Again, it's anything goes this week at the Creative Card Crew. Hope to see your card or project entered into the challenge this week - no excuses, just take a little time out for yourself and make something this week!
