I started by covering my tag from the Large Tags set with paper from the 13 Arts Dreamland collection! Next I added some modeling paste (combined with 13 Arts texture paste) in smooth swirls. This provided a light crackle effect and some areas for stamping.
When the modeling paste was dry, I did some random stamping with the Circle Bokeh Stamp and black archival ink.
All my other chipboard pieces were stained with walnut ink so that I could later add some metallic highlights in gold.
The Large Clock Face 6″ peeks out on the left as a bottom layer to the focal elements. The clock face comes in a variety of sizes but the 6 inch works great on my tag.
My ephemera pieces are all from Tim Holtz’s Botannical pack. The doll pieces are from the Paper Dolls pack.
Under the focal piece, I layered in one of the Ornate Pieces 2. Because it was a tad longer than I wanted, I trimmed it in the middle and left the ends to peek out vertically. It was also brush with metallic accents and was embossed with Stampendous Aged Gold embossing powder. A few gold microbeads from 13 Arts were added strategically.
