'Tim Tags' #4 - Tags, techniques and more!

Happy New Year! Bonne année!
Here are the last of the tags, following the tags of Tim Holtz, that I created at the end of last year: Tags 7, 8 and a mix of 9 & 12. These formed the basis of a second workshop to share the techniques and materials created and shared originally by Tim and others.

I love Tim's tag for day 7 using his 'kraft glassine' paper and alcohol inks: Here is my version with hand-cut holly leaves and pieces cut using Tim's 'Elegant Flourishes' die underneath:

My version of Tim's tag 8 is less 'Steampunk' than his and includes for the ticket a technique using Cut'n'dry felt that Tim shared last year and again on Tag 3 this year.

The third tag shown here takes inspiration from Tim's tag #12 for the background and tag #9's background 'double embossed technique' for my bauble.

There are explanations of the techniques on Tim's blog and also extra examples to check out such as his pocket watches included under tag #8. I fell in love with those so here is my version that I have been wearing all over Christmas!

Materials used for the tags: manila tags, Distress Inks (various colours including the limited edition Winter 2011 colours); Tim Holtz stamps; Paint Dabber (gold, snow cap white, silver, copper) paper distresser tool; ribbon; Sizzix dies: Festive Greenery, Elegant Flourishes, Gadget Gears, Ornaments, Upon a Time and Vintage Lace; Alcohol inks (citrus, bottle, gold mixative, blending solution, watermelon); Tim Holtz kraft glassine paper;   Stampendous black embossing powder; Archival, Stazon and Versafine inks; Cosmic Shimmer silver mist; Hero Arts large flourish stamp; idea-ology sprocket gears and pen nibs; Cut'n'dry mousse and felt; plus charms, beads, lace and tinsel from my stash.
Materials for the pocket watch necklace: Tim Holtz idea-ology pocket watch, lace chain, pen nib, tissue tape and baubles and Tim Holtz Seasonal papers with some sticky gems and mica flakes.
