12 Tags of 2014 and OCC

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. I have a tag to show today made to enter into Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014 which for the January tag has a great industrial style and also to enter the  Our Creative Corner Challenge where the challenge is 'no more shopping sins' and involves using hoarded stash.


Well, like many I have hoarded stash and there are a couple of items on the tag that I haven't used such as the pocket watch die and the game spinners. I really like how the metal effect came out and it was satisfying to actually use some of my hoarded ideology bits and pieces. I've stuck as far as I could to Tim's tag, same pumice stone background and pocket watch metal covered die cut and I've improvised on other items that I didn't have.

The sanding of the rub on's is a nice effect that is a technique from the tag by Tim, it really does make them part of the background.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments.

Love the chunky weight of your watch. You've made it the focal point of the piece and it just makes the card. Great job!
