Inspired by Tim

I made this tag for today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers - Audrie asked us to check out Tim Holtz Inspiration Pinterest Board.   I made a tag inspired by this tag

I made mine in a summer theme rather than winter - but used many of the techniques Barbarayaya used - remnant rub resist, spraying with stains, layering an image over the tag.
  I started with a plain manila tag and added some Idea-ology Remnant rubs (Elements and Botanicals) -  Then I placed the tag inside a used pizza box (to contain the spraying!) and sprayed over it with Ranger Distress Stains in Broken China, Antique Linen, twisted Cintron and Salty Ocean - drying it with my heat tool, flicking it with water, adding more stain, till I was happy with the look.  I wiped the stain off the Remnant Rubs (they resist the stain) and then I dried it thoroughly with my heat tool.
I stamped a design stamp from Tim's Classics #3 set on the right side of the tag in Archival Jet Black Ink and sponged around the edges of the tag with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso Ink.  I stamped the dragonfly from Tim's Classics #1 set on a piece of rustic cream card using Archival Jet Black Ink. I cut out the dragonfly and colored it with Ranger Distress Markers - Broken China on the wings and Old Paper on the body.  I sponged the edges with  with Ground Espresso and layered it over the tag with foam dots.
I die cut the 'summer' from Handwritten Vacation dies out of  blue and green Kraft Core Core-dinations paper that I lightly sanded.  I put the die green word inside the negative blue die cut and layered it over the tag with foam dots.
To finish off my tag -  I added green Glitter Gems from Michaels, looped a piece of Linen Ribbon through the tag hole and pined on a Philosophy tag that I colored over with a weathered wood Distress Crayon.
