I just finished my Tim Holtz January Tag. Yay! It was really fun to do. I finally bought Pumice stain and distress ink-and let me tell you-I am so glad I did. It really is a great grungy color to have. I would say a must have color.
I used twine for the tie part of this tag. I used a little black soot distress ink to make it darker. I am also submitting this tag to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes with Twine or String.
So here is my tag:
I used a stamp from 7 Gypsies for the numbers down the side. I didn't have the rub-on that Tim uses. I did try to blot it with a paper towel to give it a distressed look but it didn't get as distressed as I would have liked it. I should have practiced first.
I did flick the paint-that is so fun! Also, it is like a mist. Next time I will use my mist box-LOL. There are a few things now that have black soot dots on them but it's ok. :)
Here is a close up of the pocket watch. My sister bought me the circles for Christmas and I am soooo glad she did! It made doing this a whole lot easier! I need more little gears though-my supply is running out. And I love the way Tim makes these words from labels to like banners with the triangle cut on the end. Why couldn't I think of that? ;)
My sentiment on the tag is different than his. I couldn't find my enjoy the journey stamp but in searching for it I did run across this one. It came in a birthday stamp set-but how perfect for January!
Thank you for stopping by!! Until next time my friends...stay warm it's cold out there. :)
