Tim's Tags of 2012 -- September


I really intended this tag (inspired by Tim Holtz' September tag) to be all silver and black as is his -- but in the end it had a mind of its own and became more a fall-ish shades of brown tag. 
This tag got going when I adhered silver metallic paper, cut up in pieces like Tim shows, but then ran it through my Cuttlebug with no embossing folder and just let the natural scratches and impressions on my B plate create cool patterns and impressions.
As seen in real life the metallic background is more obvious.  The picture here makes it look more like paper.
This month is the first time I found time to join in with his monthly tags!
