12 tags of 2014- May- artful gentlemen


 I'm just squeaking in at the last minute to finish my tag inspired by Tim Holtz's May 2014 tag!  I decided to go with a masculine theme for my tag and had some fun pulling out stamps and embellishments to work with it.  I've always loved this stamp of 3 men, and the hat & moustache brads from my stash (stache? LOL) seemed like a fun addition!  Assorted brads, & Tim Holtz idea-ology embellishments together with assorted TH patterned papers came together quite nicely for me :) 

Here's some close ups for you:
 I highlighted the 'artful' tag with Distress paint and the gentleman's hat with Crackle Accents.  Here's a photo of the full tag with my crinkle ribbon (can't get enough of this stuff!)
I also made a Father's Day card using a lot of the same elements- here's a look at it:


As I'm uploading photos, I realize I forgot to watermark my photos... so I guess I'll be editing this post soon!  But, as it's pretty close to the end of the month I'll continue on- it feels great to be 'on time' with Tim's monthly tags again!  Hopefully I can keep this up!
