'Time' by Alison Hall

Hi, Alison here again! This time I have a little Steampunk tag to share with you.

I started off with a manila tag, which was inked with tumbled glass, vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks. I stamped this with the cogs background, then embossed it with the Ten Seconds Studio Kabuka mould 7. I sanded off the embossing to reveal the original manila colour, and to show off the details. I inked the edges with tumbled glass distress ink.

Next, I stamped Phineas Pinchbeck onto white card, inked him with the distress inks, then cut him out. I added glossy accents to the watch, then attached a Tim Holtz charm clip to the bottom, and dangled a little handmade charm. I attached Phineas to the tag with foam pads.

I stamped the phrase from the Time & Keys plate, cut out the words separately, inked them, and added them down the right-hand side of the tag.

Finally, I sanded a Tim Holtz corner, added it to the bottom of the tag, then threaded some string through the top to finish.

Thanks for looking! xx
