TH 12 Tags - September 2015

This month's tutoral for Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2015 looked so pretty that I really wanted to have a go.
Making the background with the alcohol inks was really fun - although my first few attempts had way too much of the metal mixative (I'm saving them for Christmas cards though as it was silver).
I thought I'd use Library green archival ink to pick out the embossing paste and then used green florist wire to attach the word band (it's really a bit thick so I had a few problems winding it tightly around the fasteners). Bundled sage spray stain on the tag seemed to play along with the green tones.
