Mr Owl tag and Michelle's Scrapbooking and More DT call details


I just finished this.. need to put a ribbon or fiber in but everyone I tried I didn't like so will try again later. I made this tag to fit a number of challenges.

I had a piece of canvas I bought as a remnant from art supply store and one side was primed.. i tried that side first but distress inks didn't work on that- or stay put! So i flipped it over and adhered it to a piece of chipboard. I used
Tim Holtz Baroque die for the shape and I need to find out what I can use in that die to keep things from getting stuck...I think I read somewhere Sizzix would send an insert, but I can't remember where.

I used Distress Inks in Rusty HInge, some Forest Moss and I think some brushed cordorouy. I had a scrap from Bo Bunny's Mamarazzi paper and inked and distressed the image with Stormy Sky. Ran some scrap navy c/s thru a Tim Holtz EF and added some Forest Moss to highlight texture. Memo pin with clock face cut from Tim Holtz paper and covered with Crackle Accents... and added a couple of beads. The rose was black cardstock and cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die. I sprtized Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist over it... hard to catch the colors in the pic but its spooky looking!
Owl was digital image I had printed I love owls!
