Dare To Dream ~ 12 Tags For 2013

Afternoon everyone!!

When I saw the new 12 Tags for 2013 challenge, HERE on Tim Holtz's blog...I just knew that I had to join in with this one, asap!! All my favourite colours and products, including Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art Modelling Film, all in one gorgeous tag ~ it was too much to resist!!! So, my inky fingers got to work and this is what I created ~ as always, I hope you like it!!


Now, I'm not a proud owner of those new Metallic Distress Paints.............YET!!!! But for my tag, I used a combination of the other Distress Paints, together with the Metallic Stains and I think it worked out great!! 
I've aged all my Idea-ology pieces with Distress Paint and Stains, to give that gorgeous patina look to them and then, because I wanted to do something a little bit different and you know me...I LOVE my Sizzix Alterations dies ~ I die cut some of the Gadget Gears from chipboard and went about ageing them too!!

 Finally, I mounted my tag onto some black card and guess what???? Yep...even that came in for a splash of Distress Paint!!
The number 4 is also die cut from chipboard, using the Word Play die.
Finally, I added a stamped message using the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings Stamp Set and that was me done!! 


Well, that's it for me for today and as always, thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at what I've created. I can't wait to read all your comments ~ they always mean so much!!
See you all again very soon...Love Emma xxx

Gorgeous take on the tag... love the cogs and gears spilling out of the edges. No Metallic Distress Paints here either, so it's great to see the Stains work so beautifully instead - that's my plan!!
