Tim Holtz Tag

Hey everyone, hope you all had a fab weekend, we had a lovely one and got a lot of allotementing done and plants planted so was really nice :) I also got some crafting time in and made this tag. I think this is actually the first Timmy Tag I've made I really enjoyed making it as its a lovely size to work with. I made the tag myself using the FAB  tag and bookplates die can see this getting a lot of use in the future. I coloured and distressed my tag using wild honey and rusty hinge distress inks. The stamps used areTim Holtz steampunk and odds and ends sets. I started by stamping the background with rusty hinge distress ink then used black archival ink to stamp the gentlemen and hand. I then stamped the odds and ends ticket and sentiment on a seperate piece of card, distressed again with rusty hinge then cut out to make my ticket embellishment, I attached this to my tag using a memo pin. I used Tim Holtz film strip ribbon along the bottom on my tag which I attached using the tiny attacher. I finally finished off my tag with some gorgeous Maya Road fibers, love these soooo much (these ones are the Australian Outback colours) and a trinket pin.
Also for you Graphic 45 fans, the stunning Springtime papers are finally in !!!! they are very limited stock as ive not received my whole order yet and was sent just a few of each pad so if you want them you'll have to be quick.
