'T' is for Time Tag

Here is my 'T' for Time tag done for the weekly challenge set by Efemera (Gail) on UK Stampers Forum. This time I decided to use masks and distess inks for the background. I cut the tag from plain cream cardstock and then applied Distress inks with cut'n'dry foam over Tim Holtz masks from the time sheet. I used dusty concord, tea dye, & aged mahogony on the body of the tag and black soot on the edges.

I spattered water unevenly over the background and after 15 seconds dried with a heat gun to set. Next I stamped a text stamp in aged mahogony top left and a small ruler stamp twice with dusty concord on the bottom right corner. Not sure where the stamps were from. I then stamped a 'No' stamp in Versamark and heat embossed with old gold embossing powder. The 'Time' stamp was stamped in dusty concord.

I then used a polka dot stamp from Tanda Stamps and stamped in versamark and heat embossed with pink EP bottom left. Finally a hole was cut with the crop-a-dile and a pink eyelet set. A purple satin tassel was then tied through the hole to finish. Most materials are available from The Artistic Stamper.
Hope you like it :-)
