Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (September)

The theme of this month's tag is faux industrial metal.  Using all Stampin' Up! products, I applied multiple layers of copper embossing powder until it was thick enough to stay warm and accept a rubber stamp impression.  I applied black StazOn to the edges of the tag to give it a worn or dirty look.  Since I didn't have any actual gears to attach I used a gear stamp both in the background and on a black piece of cardstock.

  13. Thank you for your nice comment on my tag. You did...what?! I don't know how you achieved this look (too advanced for me :) but it is super. And yes! StazOn ink to age the edges. Now I know what I did wrong trying to age the foil with Distress. Thanks!
