Sewing notions

Here's my tag for Grungy Monday which is Tim's technique from here. The tag was coloured with mustard seed DI and embossed with clear embossing powder, I only have detail EP so its not as bumpy as it might have been with regular EP. I just treated myself to new Tim's stamps yesterday so had to have a play straight away, the frill is gathered seam binding and I deliberately left the threads hanging which was quite against my natural inclination to snip them off ! I love the stamped thread labels and buttons, got to play some more ! My lovely sister e-mailed all excited that she had been to Carson and met Tim Holtz and I nearly hated her I was so jealous !! (love her really). Also entering this for Tag It On which is All About Tim Holtz

  1. Fabulous grungey tag Joan - the seam binding frill is gorgeous - I know what you mean about the natural urge to snip off the threads though!
