12 Tags of 2013 ... September!

Good Morning!
When I saw this month's tag for 12 Tags of 2013 I just couldn't wait to make my own take on it! This month the tag uses some of his brand new Stencils so it was a perfect excuse for me to get some! Tim used some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste in white but I had the black version. I've got to say that I think having the paste in black really helped the stamped image stand out. You can find a step by step on how to make the tag over on his blog. Here is what his version looks like:


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Before I go I thought I'd leave you with a little peek at a new addition in my Craft Room. My parents are moving in a couple of weeks and they gave me their CD Storage Unit, but of course I have other plans for it! I'm just not quite sure what to fill it with yet...

Love your tag! That black embossing paste that you've used in conjunction with the stencil is such a cool look against the vibrant colors of your background. Love the dimension it adds. The black stamping really pops, too. Great tag and great storage area for your inks! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. <3 Candy

Congrats on winning for your September tag. Love your take. The black really pops with the wonderful color. That cd cabinet looks like fun. But what really caught my eye is all your tags on the board above it. What a great idea!
