I love creating male inspired tags and using lots of yummy Tim Holtz goodies are my favourite ! I started b y creating the background ...and was so in the moment afraid there are no step by steps ..sorry..but...sometimes creating in the moment is so wonderful you get carried away!
I love the texture paste through a Tim Layering stencil covered with lots of yummy distress including walnut stain, hickory smoke, rusty hinge and finished around the edges with some black soot..
The new distress sprayer makes getting the flick and spritz droplets super easy... and I never stop loving the way distress reacts with water..a bit like the first time you see embossing powder melt...magic!
I completed the top of the tag with a double bow created using dyed seam binding...for vintage crinkle ..
Now if you are a regular here you will know how much I adore the found relatives cards and I love how I can start with one and the rest sort of creates itself around it! I have scuffed, sanded and inked this gent and hope he would be happy with his place on this tag?
I chose a flashcard, plenty of yummy idea-ology and a word band to help tell the story of my tag ... I added a stamped sentiment using handwritten stamps from Tim Holtz and a number plaque...do love numbers .. they seem to lend themselves to all sorts of creations!
To continue the vintage feel I used the distress spritzer and my black soot distress marker, it is amazing how these little details make such a big difference ..
So hope you will pop across to A Vintage Journey to see all the other fab takes to insipre you .xx
