So excited to find TimHoltz’s tags for 2015 I jumped right in, started designing my version and thought I would include my tag on Tim’s website. This required a link so after some investigation I believe this will work so here we go!

Following Tim’s tutorial the #8 manila tag background was made using brushed pewter distress spray stain, tumbled glass, broken china, chipped sapphire distress ink and the THS004 stripes layering stencil.

The Old Jalopy die was cut using green and brown cardstock and Inkssentials foil tape. All edges and creases were inked with walnut stain distress ink. The brown die cut wheels where trimmed down and inked to form the interior tire. A mirrored star adorns the wheel. I cut the roof off of the brown jalopy, inked it and layered it over the green jalopy.

The hood ornament is an upside down fleur brad cut in half and covered in foil tape. The foil tape pieces are highlighted with latte alcohol ink using a cotton swab. Silver alcohol ink was applied with a cotton swab to plastic packaging to create the windows.

I cut out the tiny pictures from Tim Holtz idea-ology Destinations paper pad and glued them to the back of the film strip ribbon. Four additional pieces of paper were cut and inked with walnut stain distress ink. I arranged the pieces of paper, added the pen nib and glued the ends of the film strip ribbon loosely over the top. The enjoy the journey stamp from THJ009 saying stuff stamp collection is stamped on green cardstock, layered over texture cardstock and popped up with foam mounting tape for added dimension. I finished the tag with distress inked crinkle ribbon.
