Tim Holtz - 1st "Proper" Tag

Today i finally managed to have a bit of me time! I got to play with lots of goodies i have bought recently but haven't had time to play with - i started out thinking I'd make a cute card then this turned into an inky tag! So here is my first proper tag - what i mean by proper is, erm.... well bascially the only tags i have made really that are this style have been just flat with sprays and a stamp over the top! This has lots more layers and embellies on, so here it is...
So i started off with a Tag, the new Spring Distress Inks (more coming to mmcs soon) and a water mist. I did swiped the inks onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and then pressed the tag into the inks. I heated the tag dry and then did this several times to create the background. I then used the Umbrella Man Die and used Frantage Embossing (on the way to mmcs). This bit looks better irl as its an assortment on silver, godl & black. I then added the sentiment, from Sam Poole's Artful Phrases. To finish i added Tea Dye ink around teh edge, drew some lines & added the lovely Tim Holtz embellies. The ribbon i dyed with inks, and i also used a few stamps around the edges, not sure which ones now as my desk is like a craft explosion!

I hope you like :)
