October birthdays call for a special kind of card. Here is one I made using the October Tag
I hope the birthday girl likes it. Probably will because she likes Tim inspired art as much as I do.
I used Core'dinations card stock with black over orange, sanded the edgesand a little bit into the main part of the piece, then layered it onto tan card stock. I used a bit of Spiced Marmalade Distress ink edging on the edges of the card. I think it came out rather well.
Let me know what you think.
I do dearly love Tim Holtz art and style. I rarely copy the exact design, but this month's tag was SO close to what I was working on that I went back and added the extra touches that made the design just POP! I particularly appreciate the use of plain glitter coloured with alcohol ink. Get custom colour and the great sparkle. WOW
Anyway,  here is what I came up with using what I already had on hand. How's that for lucky! Now to decide which of the October Birthday girls gets the tag.
