Tag #6 & Simon Says Show some Time

I combined Tim's Tag # 6 with the Simon Says Stamp and Show an element of Time to create a Happy New Year tag.


I love working with aluminum foil and that triggered the thought of embossing the gears and doing a time to celebrate theme for New Years. I added images from the Artistic Outpost Great Gatsby and used sentiments from a Studio G clear set.  The clock hands are Tim Holtz. 

*** Edited to add more details *****
1. Attach aluminum foil to the white cardstock. 
2. Emboss using embossing folder. 
3. Smear Versamark watermark ink over surface and edges of tag. Heat emboss with Stampendous Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder. 
4. Smear surface with brown and black StaZon inks to give uneven textures. 
5. Stamp images (man, bottles) onto white cardstock with black ink. Cut out. Attach to tag using tape runner for the mail image and pop dot the bottles. 
6. Accent gears with brads and clock handles. Add glass pebbles using glue dots. 
7. Stamp sentiments using black ink on white cardstock. Emboss edge of circle using versamark and Tinsel Silver embossing powder. 
8. Accent clock with clock handle, layer onto black cardstock and attach to top of tag.


Have a wonderful day!
