12 Tags of 2014 -- August

A new month means a new Tim Holtz tag for 12 Tags of 2014. As usual I had my doubts about my choice of colors for the tag background, but as always, the colors work. It's almost like magic. There are lots of layers and embellishments that make up this card. The background has tissue tape, lots of embossing paste and stencils, and distress stains. Oh, I can't forget the rusted corners (distress embossing powder. I love how the tissue tape provides a clear place for the focal stamp. The embellishments provide so much eye candy and texture.
I am also entering my tag into these challenges: A Vintage Journey -- just stain it; Artistic Stamper -- anything goes; and Mixed Media Monthly --stencils and modeling paste.
