Here's my tag with Goth Grandfather Clock (Arwen McCullen), Design Cube 2 (France Papillon), and "One Second, One Minute, One Hour, One Day" (Janet Klein).

The Goth Grandfather Clock was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) onto a tag die-cut from 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore) with my trust Tag Alterations die (Sizzix). Goth Grandfather Clock was colored with Copic markers. The was also stamped onto Eclipse Tape (Judikins) then fussy-cut to be used as a mask.

The mask was placed over its counterpart on the tag, a Post-It Note was used to cover the top part of the cardstock and Copic markers were used to add the floor. The Post-It Note was moved to cover the floor and Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender, and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks (Ranger) were sponged over the tag, spritzed with water, then heat set. The same colors of Distress ink were sponged over the Gothic and the Clockwork Layering stencils (Stampers Anonymous), then spritzed, and heat set repeatedly to knock the patterns way back.

The crackle pattern from the Design Cube 2 was repeatedly stamped using the same colors of Distress ink. Again, the tag was spritzed with water and heat set. This process was repeated several times until I was happy.

Post-It Notes were used to cover the One Second, One Minute, One Hour, One Day" stamp, one phrase at a time was inked, the Post-It Notes were removed, and each phrase was stamped with Distress ink. When all four time phrases were stamped, the tag was once again spritzed with water and heat set to make the sentiments fade into the background.

The entire One Second, One Minute, One Hour, One Day" sentiment was stamped at the top, the mask was removed, and clear polka-dotted ribbon was added to finish the tag.

Thanks for visiting today!
