Bare Metals and Tim Holtz Oh My

So I paid a visit to my good friend Suzanne at yesterday and she gave me a set of the New Tattered Angels Bare Metal Sprays for my birthday.  I was ITCHING to play with them yesterday.  So I pulled out some Tim Holtz Tags from Ranger and started playing.


Here is a photo of the tag prior to decorating so you can see all the luscious details in the colors. I love the texture, and the vibrant tones that mixing all these colors brings. When you heat set the Gold and Pewter sprays they bubble and crack which causes the ridged texture that you would find in rust.  LOVE IT!

I was so excited that I had to finish the tag - "Tim Style" by using my new mover's and shapers Typewriter die.  The dressform was inspired by Marion Smith's latest Live with Prima where she shared how to make Christmas Ornaments.  I used her technique for the book pages on the mover's and shapers mini dressform die.  
I hope you try out these sprays. They are so much fun.  Thanks for stopping in today!
