Time Changer

TIO 107 - Time Changer (Victoriana, Steampunk, Hugo?)

Now, I know I have been notable by my blogging absence for the past couple of weeks, but I just can't seem to shake off this dratter cold and cough that I seem to have been plagued with for the past 4 or 5 weeks. It is really dragging me down. I don't feel like doing anything, least of all dragging mself out in the cold to get to my craft room. Anyways, I felt I really should get this last tag for 2011 done.

So on to my tag. I have painted the tag with pearl paint dabber then, once dry, I coloured it with worn lipstick distress ink and backed it on a slightly larger black tag. The clock faces in the background are a Hero Arts stamp and have been stamped in black archival, second generation inking. Over this I have added TH clogs, cut from black TH coredinations then sanded back a bit. The saying and the victorian man are from sets by Creative Expressions. Lastly, I have added black gross grain ribbon from my stash.

Short and sweet, pity really, I could have sooo gone to town on this theme. Never mind, perhaps I will have shaken off my cold by the New Year. Hopefully, you will all come back refreshed after the Christmas rush is over and you have had a chance to re-charge your batteries, raring to go with our next round of challenges.

Do pop over the the TIO blog and check out the entries by my uber-talented design team buddies, then suitably inspired, give it a go. We love to check out your entries. Just join in, have fun and please remember to use at least one real stamp in your creations.

Bye for now.
