Time Reflections

ISCC16Time Reflections_SaK 

Innovative Stamp Creations Blog challenge today is tags & to use a Tim Holtz technique.  I chose to use Tim's July Tutorial

which is faux bleaching.  The distress reinkers I used are:  Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Faded Jeans & Shabby Shutter.

All images are from a newly released stamp sheet from Innovative Stamp Creations called Mini Book Series: Photo Negative.  I also used a

vintage key, unknown key hole and Tim Holtz Spinners and gears.  The fibers are Basic Grey and the striped ribbon May Arts.

Tags are fun and easy to alter!
Here's a quick-easy challenge....
Use at least 1 tag on a card, make a box, make whatsoever you desire, but you must use at least 1 technique on your tag by Tim Holtz.
Visit his blog to choose from a variety of tech's... be sure to scroll under catagories column!
