Here is my entry in Tim Holtz's Tags of 2013 Challenge. (http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-march/ ) I didn't think I would get it done but I did! Yay! I don't have the bunny mini die so I decided to use another forest animal that I did have...the mini deer. I was out of silver tinsel so I put my black tinsel to work. The sentiment is a play on the words that nobody is home. ( heh, heh, heh ) I love how the distress paints colored the metal foliage. I also improvised with another grass die that I had. I haven't seen Tim's in a local store as of yet. Happy Easter everyone!

The picture wheel is cut out of a metal sheet and I embossed it using the Riveted Metal embossing folder. I then used pitch black, copper and silver alcohol inks to color it. The tattered flower attached to the picture wheel was cut out of glossy paper and then colored using various alcohol inks. I inked the edges of the flowers and most of everything because I like the depth that it creates. I used a hitch fastener for the center of the flower.
The bottom small flower was cut from grunge board and painted with distress paints and spritzed with water and then the edges were inked using black paint dabber. The center is just a covered button that I had. I added the tissue tape to hide where the 2 small easels were glued together and I used walnut stain distress ink over the tape. I added the blue tinsel scarf on the dress form to dress it up! This was funky and fun to make!
