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.

  6. Wonderful tag, Wanda. Lovely colour combination and I like the effect of the pearl dabber as the undercoat. So sorry to hear that you still have that cold - do hope you feel better soon.
