My Quote comes from the Tim Holtz Stamp Set
Odds and Ends, this set also has the outline of the tags too. So I used both for my tag. I really love this quote, it's one of my favorites from Tim.
First thing I did was stamp the tag and quote and then I used Tim's Stamp Blocks, one of the smallest rectangle ones is the exact size of the tag stamp so I used that to cover my stamp while I went over the edges with Distress Inks. I used DI in colors Peacock, Faded Jeans and also Seedless Preserves. They blended well together and by using the stamp block I didn't gt any on the white center where I stamped my quote.
I then ran it through the Sizzix machine inside a small gear folder that I have, not sure even where I got it. I stamped the Words "Art" and "Shadow" in the two colors and cut each little one out and added it to the quote to make it pop more!
I then ran over the gear embossing with Distress Ink in black soot. I have some funky ribbon that matched pretty well with the bright colors so I added that.
I didn't think the tag was quite done so I made some shrinky dink charms that say "Enjoy The Journey" stamped with one of Tim's stamps. I added alcohol inks in the same colors to match.
I had to make 12 for the swap so these are some of the finished tags. Here is a close up of the charm.
I hope your having a wonderful crafty week!!!
