All the Time in the World Tag

Time in the World Tag w border

This week we are already up to Technique #20, using Tim Holtz’s book, Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2. This tag uses the technique on page 44 of the book, and the CC2Challenge is hosted by Studio L3.

I used a Hero Arts clock stamp for the background, to try out the enameled stamping technique, with no clue as to the theme of the tag. Then I found the little gold clocks in my stash. Wanting to use my new Movers and Shapers globe die, I came up with an idea for using the clocks and the globe together.

The Distress Ink colors I used on the tag: Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. I cut the globe from grunge board and painted the stand with Gold Dabber. I painted the world part of the globe with Claudine Hellmuth Sky Blue and then went over it with Peacock Feathers Reinker. Then of course the entire globe was grunged up a bit with a sander and Vintage Photo Ink.

The ENAMELED STAMPING technique used on the background of the card (see page 44 of Tim’s book) was new for me, and I LOVE the technique!

I am entering this tag in these other challenges as well:

Hels Sheridan’s Sunday Stamper Color Riot Challenge

The Stamp Man’s Summer Sizzlers Challenge

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge-Fabric of Our Lives

What a great tag - I love the golds, browns and turquoises together, and the enamelled stamping looks great. Lovely to combine the fabric with the look...

Great tag - love the use of the hessian (burlap) and the inky look. Haven't seen that little die used much so it's good to see it getting used here.
