Distress Ink Feature and a Tim Holtz inspired Tag!!!

Here's my tag that was inspired by Tim Holtz...........

Since our feature item on Scrapbooker's Paradise is Distress Ink (see below this post to see how you can save some $$$ if you want to purchase the inks) I just had to make something with almost all of Tim Holtz/Ranger products! I absolutely love anything Tim!!!! So I decided to make one of his famous tags, I hope you all like it!

and here's a close up............

Products Used:

Ranger Distress Inks in the following colours: Spiced Marmalade, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood and Black Soot
Tim Holtz Shabby French Unmounted Stamp Set (please note: if you are looking for any of his sets online they are under the manufacturer Art Gone Wild)

Here's a mini tutorial of how I made this tag:

Use your ink blending tool to apply the Spiced Maramlade, Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord Distress Inks to the tag. Emboss with the Poison embossing folder and use the Black Soot Distress Ink with the blending tool to highlight the raised areas of the embossing.

Stamp the bird image in Black Soot and emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut out the bird with your scissors. Cut the On the Fence die and leave a small border at the bottom and using the blending tool, blend Pumice Stone, Weatherd Wood and Black Soot Distress Inks onto the fence.

Cover the key with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and emboss with the Dusty Concord Distress Embossing Powder. Cut out the Pumpkin from the Graphic 45 border, leave it just a little bigger that the facet and adhere with the Glossy Accents. Trim the excess paper off.

Add the jump rings to the key and facet. Pop dot the fence onto the tag and then the bird to the fence. Run the black organza ribbon through the jump rings and glue to the back of the tag.

Well that 's it.......for this time.

So that's how it's done!!! So often I've wanted to highlight the embossed portion, but the ink pad failed me...and I have the Ink Blending tool! I can't wait to try this now! Love your fun with the mix of colours and amazing details!
