While creating my version of Tim’s tag for this month I also took pictures of the steps. So now I can not only show you the finished tag but also how is was created.
You can see the inspirational
Step 1. I started by making my own “washi tape”. So I cut the strips of simple clear scotch tape and adhered them to some sheets from a dictionary. When you pull those strips off they take a layer of paper with them.
Step 2. I glued my custom tape on a standard manila tag with liquid glue. After that I used black Ranger Archival Ink to stamp some images and patterns. This ink dries on scotch tape permanently.
Step 3. I added white texture paste using Tim Holtz stencils: Rays and Bubble. Then I waited till it dried completely.
Step 4. To color my background I chose two colors of distress ink: Mowed Lawn and Spiced Marmalade. I squished the ink pads on my non-stick sheet and spritzed the ink with water.
Step 5. The next step was a little messy so I didn’t take it on camera. I turned my tag front side down and put it into the ink pressing it down. It required misting some water on the tag too to get the ink moving. I used my heat tool to speed up drying. Texture paste absorbed the color while scotch tape resisted ink and water.
Step 6. I took Bubble stencil again and used ink applicator tool to add Vintage Photo ink on some areas of the tag.
Step 7. Now I put clear embossing ink on the edges of the tag directly from the ink pad. Then I spritzed Distress Embossing Powder over it and heat embossed.
Step 8. I stapled a trim of Ideaology Film Strip Ribbon on the tag. I love how realistic it looks.
Step 9. I also cut some Crinkle Ribbon and colored it with Vintage Photo and Mowed Lawn distress ink by adding water. When it was dry I tied it on the tag.
Step 10. For the decoration I created my own clock element. I used a stamp on cardstock and cut it out. Then I adhered acrylic circle on it using Glossy Accents.
Step 11. I had some words printed on my computer. So I cut the paper, toned it with distress ink and glued down on the tag.
I enjoyed creating this tag. I hope that you will like it too.
