Guest Artist- A Vintage Tag

Hello All

The lovely ladies here at
The Artistic Stampers Creative Blog asked me
 to to be a guest Artist for  the month of November....thank you all
so much, I am really looking forward to it!

So I thought I would share with you a tag I created using
Tim Holtz Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Antique Linen 
I inked up two to use as the main tag and one to create a pocket.

After inking up the main tag I pasted some torn book pages and stuck them down with Claudine Hellmuths Matte Medium.
I then inked the pen nibs from the Tim Holtz Artful Artifacts stamp set onto the spare tag and cut out to make a pocket, this was then sewn into place with the sewing machine

I then stamped the sentiment from Stuff to say set by Tim Holtz
and selected a a hand from the Little labels set

I added some of my own stash of watch faces and a selection of Idea-ology
 and some corners
The small hand was covered with a fragment tile and I added some torn ribbon to the tag
I then added some more stitches to the side of the tag.

I really had a lot of fun creating this tag
I look forward to returning very soon
stay inky
