Stephen is hosting a 6-4-6 tag swap in the All Things Tim Holtz yahoo group and I have been wanting to sign up but have had no time to create so I waited until I had the tags actually made before I signed up. We were required ti use Tim's new embossing folders somewhere on our tags and it was Artist's Choice other than that. I decided to emboss the entire tag using the brick wall folder. I used barn door, fired brick, and aged mahogony inks on my craft sheet and misted it with shimmer mist made of barn door ink refill and gold perfect pearls and swiped the tage thru them before embossing. I went over the embossed bricks with Pumice stone ink to highlight the raised areas. I used Tim's die to cut chipboard shapes and paint dabbers abd did the shabby Chic technique on these. Pop-dotted them, added tissue tape to the bottoms, and tied on some torn fabric strips. Can't wait to see what I get back and hope whoever gets mine will enjoy them!

This is beautiful, Kathy! I'd hoped to participate in this swap, but I think I'm quickly running out of time. I know you'll be receiving wonderful creations from the others.
