The Tim Holtz Tag card

I made two of the Tim Holtz tags and used one to make this card, I usually find male cards really hard to do bur loved doing this one and I loved how it turned out.

I followed Tim's instructions to make the tag, and added the clock which I cut out on my craft roo, some gold brads and  a bit of backing paper with a clock it on to finish it off.

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013

I don't normally do "tags" but whilst looking at Tim Holtz's blog I decided to give it a go, It was a case of find what I can because I only have a few stamp sets and some distress inks that are Tim Holtz products.

This is Tims lovely tag.

And this is mine,


 So to make this Tag I used,

Do Crafts bottle cap embossing folder,
Distress inks
The cogs and clock hands were cut on my craft robo with mirror card and sprayed with shimmer inks,
Tim Holtz Stamps
The clip is a mini one I found and the ribbon and silver ladder thing was from stash.

I did enjoy making it (well I made two and made the other one into a card) and am looking forward to  next months tag
