Tag #8

Hi there everyone.
Another day and another interesting tag from Tim. I just love how different each day's tag is and I am enjoying something just for my own pleasure in amongst all the design work and class prep I'm frantically trying to catch up on!
Tim's tag details are HERE and this is my take on it.
I do not have the stamps used so did my background with a letters stamp from the David stamp plate and my men are from Paperartsy (So glad I ordered that one and it arrived in time when I saw this morning's tag!)
I used alcohol ink mixative for the clock and gears, philosophy tag instead of the number plate.
Cut the man out 3 times and the holly is from the festive foliage cut down a bit and flat pearls coloured with red pepper alcohol ink.
I had the hand stamp in the wooden version so was pleased about that. I just love the steampunk style wreath too. I stamped a ticket and edged it in red to mimic the label he used and the joy is from the Carnivalle die.
So there you have it; another day done and edging us closer to the big day. Have a blessed time whatever you are doing today.

I love today's tag - and have ideas buzzing around in my mind - hope I don't forget by the time I get home from work (ok, yes, I have written them down!) Your Paperartsy man is a fab substitute.
