We are Tagging It at OSCC

Good morning everybody

Time for another challenge at the  One Stop Craft Challenge,  and this week we are doing tags.  So you can either make a tag, or include a tag on a card or any other project.  We are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts this week - so please pop across to the have a browse at their fab range of goodies.

At the moment I am in love with some Art Journey stamps I bought a couple of weeks ago, so I have decided to make a tag using the Tick Tock set, and I think the wobbly clocks are fab.

To make this tag, first I took a Tim Holtz stamp inked with versamark, and embossed it with clear powder on the plain tag.   Over this I used Distress Ink Stains in three colours, and spritzed lightly with water and let the colours run into each otherslightly.  All the elements are stamped in Rangers Archival Black.  I coloured some seam binding with the Distress Stain, and added a cog through the middle of it.  A small key was added a a tiny watch part to the middle of one of the clocks.  Across the bottom is a piece of tissue tape with the pm hours on it.  I finished with a sparkly button.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
