Influenced By Tim Holtz - Tag

I have a swap for a FB site and this is the tag which will be going to USA  :)   My swap partner doesn't know I have a blog so I can happily share and I trust not spoil the surprise!
Standard Ranger #8 tag, background Sepia Archival ink and MME stamps to create the background.  
Swish TH method tag through inks spayed and mopped up several times - Broken China, Fossilized Amber and Rusty Hinge. Small TH stencil and Gesso.
Die cut TH small cogs. Painted with DecoArt paints to create a rust effect. Large Stampers Anonymous Stamp image stamped and cut to size.
Twine and a metallic disc saying Never, Never, Give up!

Thank you for Looking  :)

Carol, this tag is just the coolest! I really love your background colors and the Tim Holtz technique that you used to create it. The diecut cogs look awesome and I love that "creepy kids' stamp, as Tim refers to it. Really a beautiful job! I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice message.

Wow, wow, wow! This is truly a piece of art! I love the way you mixed the colors so beautifully and how you kept it vibrant, but rustic and vintage at the same time. Great use of eclectic elements and I love the end result! Thanks for sharing such an inspiring piece with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
