1st Tag of the Year!

Hello Everybody!

I am super excited to show you this tag I made for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013.  You can go here to see the original inspiration and how to make the tag.

So here's my version of the tag.  I kept to the original Tim tag except for a few things.  I don't have the film strip that he used so I stamped the film strip (from one of his stamp sets) onto a transparency and cut it out.  I am so going to do that again.  That was the first time I used that stamp-LOL!  My hand stamp is from Prima-I just got!  I used a different saying (Still T.H. stamp).  Oh and I used a different embossing folder for the background.

Here's a close up.  I made my gears differently too.  I put Martha Stewart white texture effect on them and then I painted it with gold dauber and silver and copper stain.  I also used a little black paint so they wouldn't be quite so bright and shiny ;)

I used a Making Memories clip since that is all I had.  But orange sherbert doesn't go with my tag so...

I got out the gold and silver alcohol inks...Ah yeah!

I also don't have the ribbon that Tim used.  But I have white seam binding like from the sewing section. A friend of mine gifted me a lot of binding and ric rac so I am super happy that this worked.  I stamped it with a stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The first set of music notes fit perfectly!  I heat set it and then I added sage and marmalade stain.  Scroll back up to the top and see it again-it's beautiful!  I think so anyways, and I am very happy at how this tag turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...don't be afraid of trying new techniques!
