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!
