Art tag inspired by new Tim stamps

Last week I used a coupon at Michael's to buy one of Tim Holtz's new foam mounted, red rubber stamp sets. Yesterday, I took a few minutes to make an art tag using my new stamp images.
I used one of my many pre cut manila tags that made with my Big Kick and my Tim tag die.
My  Tim distress ink pads were out on my desk,  and so I chose to use...peeled paint and shabby shutters for my tag. Next I sprayed my new Smooch Spritz  pearlized accent sprays onto the tag. The colors were  Citrus Tickle (yellow green) and Splash (blue). In the past several weeks I have found several packages of the Smooch Spritz's marked down from $9.99 to $3.99 in a variety of colors at Michael's. I have had fun using those Smooch sprays on my tags. There are some new colors in the Smooch Spritz's, but those weren't marked down.
I then stamped my new Tim  images with black memories ink onto my prepared tag. While waiting for my tag to dry I pleated some of Tim's paper tape. When the tag was dry I adhered the tissue tape to the bottom of my tag, and then added a butterfly to the center of the tape.

This morning I ran some errands, including getting my oil changed. Then I made what was going to be a quick side trip to A. C. Moore. I spent way longer in the store than I thought, as it took me awhile to decide what to use my 50% coupon on. I ended up using my coupon on a Tim embossing folder that I didn't have.             
While in A. C. Moore I met a very nice lady, and we ended up talking for quite awhile.

Before heading home I stopped at the nursing home to see my mom. Other family members came while I was there. Mom ended up with  quite a gang visiting including 4 of her great grandchildren. While at the nursing home, I gave my granddaughter, Bella her first taste of a red Tootsie Roll pop, and she loved it!!! :-)

Now that I am home, I have to start some laundry and think about what to make for supper tonight. Take out sure sounds good right now.
