Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 October.

Having set up this blog in part to participate in some challenges. I decided it was time to have a play. Whilst Tim's tag has a Halloween theme, i don't really do holidays. However Tim and gang have recently been to Disney and i and my family love Disney so i went with that as a theme.

I didn't have any printed tissue paper, so stamped on the back of plain tissue paper using archival ink and one of Tims reflections stamp. Its a text stamp defining the words "curiosity" and "imagination" which seemed appropriate for the Disney theme.

I also didn't have any of Tims new glitter but remembered i had some clear microbeads. So i used a combination of two alcohol inks to colour them reddish. I only have a few of the original inks. ( i have however ordered a few brights and pastels today as i keep wanting to use the alcohol inks for various things).

The castle charm isn't Disney but reminds me of their castle. The key charm reminds me of the "Keys to the Kingdom tour" i booked as a surprise treat for my oldest daughter. Highly recommended, we both loved it.
