I love Shabby Chic, Vintage and Grunge and this tag has all three – But, most of all, I love all things Tim Holtz! I took out some of my goodies to play today and made a huge mess! It was so epic that I actually took a photo of it to show you! LOL (See Below) Are you on my Mailing List? CLICK HERE for exclusive projects, tutorials and discounts.
- Put Distress Stains onto a Craft Mat – Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain.
- Swipe a Manila Tag through the colors and Heat Set.
- Drip water onto the Tag and Dry.
- Use Tim Holtz's Clockworks and Measured Layering Stencils with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Blending Tool.
- Use Walnut Stain Distress Ink through the Splatters Layering Stencil.
- Apply various Remnant Rubs, Tissue Tape and sponge over them with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and a Blending Tool.
- Stamp the sentiment from the Phrases 2 Stamp Set using Black Archival Ink.
- Sponge several words from Chit Chat Words using Black Soot Distress Ink. Adhere with the Tiny Attacher.
- Using a Blending Tool, bring Black Soot Distress Ink onto the tag to draw your eye to the center of the tag.
- Attach Film Strip using the Tiny Attacher.
- Attach gears with brads.
- Dye Crinkle Ribbon with Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Distress Stains.
- Attach a Bronze Corner to the tag.
- Attach a black tag to finish the back of the manila tag.
- Pull the ribbon through the hole in the tag.
- All supplies are Tim Holtz (love him!)
The back of the tag often gets "dirty." If you don't mind that, just leave it. If you'd like a more finished look, adhere a Black Manila Tag to the back before tying the ribbon. This will hide the inks, brads, etc.
I wish I could tell you I "staged" this photo but, sadly, it is a perfect representation of my work space while I'm creating. Check back tomorrow for a new Project using Craft Metal Sheets.
