Tag It!

Happy Tuesday,

I'm back today with our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week it was my turn to choose the theme. So, for the next seven days we would love to see your projects using


You can make a tag, or use one on your project - here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I love making tags, so this one was an easy decision - but I have never made a male themed one, so it's a first! I used my usual tag template and covered it with some brown textured paper from my stash and some map paper, which I tore and inked. I ran the whole tag through an embossing folder and highlighted bits of it with some guilding wax (you can just see a bit behind the ticket at the top). The image is from an old sheet of steampunk designs. I added a Tim Holtz 'Soar' ticket, which is secured with a mini bulldog clip (I thought this was a little more masculine than some ribbon). The two little hinges on the right hand side are stamped and cut out and the wording was produced on my pc, torn and inked before securing in place. I delved into my box of 'metal' and found the brass cog and mini timepiece to finish off.

Hugz, Jan xx
