Tim Holtz Toadstool Poison Tag

I've been playing with a selection of Tim Holtz goodies to create this tag.

It started off with a piece of patterned paper a gift had been wrapped in, which I adhered to a tag base. I then applied a few brush strokes of Paper Artsy "Lake Wanaka" chalk acrylic paint and then some "Rusty Hinge" Distress Oxide to the tag, leaving a floral area exposed.

Using "Crackling Campfire" Distress Oxide through a Funky Fossil stencil called "Abstract Ovals".  I used a script stamp for extra detail with Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink.  

I splattered the white and black dots using Posca pens then masked off areas of the tag to stamp the chicken wire, by Creative Expressions in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Finally, I added the poison and the Toadstool (part of the Tim Holtz Baseboard set - TH94060) and the sentiment of "an unfortunate ending" using a Tim Holtz sticker book (TH94059).


  1. What you did to the paper you started of with is amazing Sam, love the toadstool stamp and your sentiments
