12 Tags of 2013 - January

Okay!  I finally mustered up the courage to join the fun over at Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013!  I admit I was a bit worried, but I was totally amazed at how fast the whole process went with Tim's step by step directions.  Before I realized it, I was finished!  Tim's fabulous Tag for January 2013 is shown below.  I LOVE this style of art work and have slowly been building up my stash.  I just recently acquired the time piece embossing folder and cog wheel dies over at The Funkie Junkie and was thrilled to have them to use today.  I did not have the text below, but used another text from Tim Holtz.  Somewhere, I have a tin of film strip, but I could not find it, even though I just reorganized my craft studio, so I found an image of a film strip from a stamp purchased on eBay and used that.  

I truly love working with Distress Inks and tried Tim's trick of slicing through most of the top of my embossing folder to slide my tag into it.  But probably, my favorite part of this tag was stamping the ribbon and dragging it through Distress Ink.  Need to acquire more Distress Stains!!! Thanks for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne, Great take on Tim's tag.
Love great seeing all the improvisations people make, don't you.
Very scary slicing through the folder!
Have a great weekend.
