12 Tags Of 2016 - January
Topic: Multi-Technique

Sure enough, Tim Holtz returned with a monthly tag challenge for 2016. Each month he will reprise two old tag techniques he has done in past years and combine them into one tag. I am joining in again - right on the heels of finishing my last tag of 2015!

Here are the two tags Tim combined:


And here is the tag he made for January 2016:


Here is the process I used to create my version:

- Choose a stamp for the chalkboard center of the card (I chose a birthday message)

- Select a cardstock and apply metal foil tape to the top and the bottom edges (I used card-sized rather than a tag)

- Emboss just the metal areas with an industrial look folder (I used diamond plate) 

- Use felt blending tool to apply black alcohol ink to metal areas (Tim  did his with black Distress Paint)

- Use soft cloth or paper towel to wipe away excess ink to reveal metal

- Dry with a heat tool

- On black cardstock, ink stamp with Distress Embossing ink and cover with Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder and heat with heat tool (I did not have these products so I inked my stamp and made the impression with a glue stamp pad. Then I ground some white chalk and tapped it into the glue and dried it with a heat gun)

- Scribble over the image with white chalk including background

- Use fingers to rub in chalk

- Tear top and bottom edges 

- Adhere chalk layer to metal layer using brads

- Trim sides of chalk image to fit on metal layer

- Adhere gear embellishments using brads

- Use strong adhesive to mount piece to a base card

Here is my finished card:


What a great card for a guy - all that industrial look. We're off to a good start.
