My Take on Tim's Tag


Having visited the Tim Holtz blog and checking out the the 12 Tags for 2013 I thought I would give it a go and try produce the 12 tags though the year, one because it will be fun and two I may pick up on some new techniques to use in my crafting.  This is a great idea for me as I do tend to do CAS style cards and need to let my imagination soar a little!!

These tags are my take on "Tim's Tag".  I didn't have all the Ranger/Tim Holtz products used so had to improvise somewhat and am sure more new products will join my stash as the year progresses.

I followed the basic tutorial on the site substituting my bits and pieces for things I didn't have.  I thought the film strip needed a little something so filled in two frames with some stamping, had to make my own small label too by cutting out a stamped image I liked.  The bulldog clip was found in the office, It looks a lot bigger than the one used in the tutorial but it is quite ancient.  I like curly edges so distressed the sentiment and curled one of the corners and set it at an angle rather than straight.  Lastly a strip of satin ribbon was coloured with distress ink, heat dried then stamped with black Stazon.

I used:
#8 tag cut using Sizzix die
Papermania embossing folder and Urban Stamps
Papermania metal cogs
Stampers Anonymous stamp "Stuff to Say"
Cogs and film strip cut from card using the Silhouette electric cutting machine 
Ranger distress inks and metal distress stains (on cogs)

Looking forward to what comes next month, maybe something Valentine related!

Ooh two tags! It was fun doing Tim tags for the first time. I like how you put pictures in the film strip. I was looking at mine the other day think it looked a bit empty. Maybe I'll tweek it a little.
