It's time for the next challenge over at The Stamp Man and with Father's Day fast approaching the challenge this time is Make it for a man. Remember there's a £10 voucher to spend in the online store for the winner.
I decided to have a go with one of the jumbo tags that I bought from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique. They are quite alot larger than the standard size so gives you alot more scope. I started by using the Curiosities Tim Holtz stamp set and stamping the small stamps using Distress Markers in Broken China, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick. I then blended Tea Dye and Walnut Stain DI over and around the edge of the tag. I then embossed the whole tag using the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic EF. I then rubbed Embossing Ink over the tag and embossed it with clear EP.
I stamped all of the images and text, which are from the Darkroom Door Photography and the Tim Holtz Curiosities sets, with black Archival Ink and blended DI over them. The film strip is made using a stamp from the Darkroom Door Photography stamps set and I've stamped it several times onto acetate. The frame for the main text is made using the Movers and Shapers Mini Tickets die. I added some gold EP to the heads of the screw brads and a filigree metal corner to the top of the tag.
I'm entering this tag into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is One for the Boys.
