Look at my Tim Holtz Tag

I've been watching all the tags that have been posted on some of the blogs I follow and I finally tried one.
I used kraft card stock to punch out the tag with my new tag die from Sizzix. I then clear embossed a fabric stamp and covered over it with distress inks.
I made the wing with a great technique that I learned from Roni at: she has a great tutorial on her blog, I'll definitely be doing more of this technique.
I used a key for my base and some lace to make a little flower under the clock face I cut out of Tim's paper and added hands and glossy accents. I used some of Tim's corner on the bottom of the tag.
I also tried a new technique of dying seam binding with alcohol inks for the ribbon on top.
Finally I added a Tim Holtz key that I used alcohol inks to age it.
I'm going to enter my tag in simonsaysstampchallenge for a coffee and cream challenge.
And also studioL3 alcohol inks on metal the Compendium Challenge #33
I will also submit it to All Things Tim Let me know if you like it, I love your comments. Also I posted all my charms from the charm swap in the post below. Shari
