I only have the small Movers and Shapers pocket watch die, but it worked beautifully too - and as I love to work in smaller scale anyway it was much fun to die cut and emboss, stamp, blend, layer and embellish.
Distress inks "pumice stone",
"rusty hinge" and "black soot",
idea-ology "Alpha Tiles"(which I recently bought at a sale and like so much),
idea-ology cogs, gears and brads,
an idea-ology "Custom fastener" (on which I used a fragment from a stamped Tim Holtz quote),
idea-ology "chit chat" stickers,
"Game Spinners" and "Journaling Tickets",
stamps from the Tim Holtz stamp sheets "Numeric", "Way With Words" and "Worn Text"
and the Tim Holtz layering stencil with those awesome grunge stripes.
To tone down the copper foil I used instead of aluminium foil, I used some black acrylic paint which I dabbed on with my fingertip and whiped off the raised areas carefully.
To match the colour of the tag's background with the copper elements I used I
blended my tag with "rusty hinge" and only a little "pumice stone" DI.
I also love those Journaling Tickets and the idea of stamping a quote onto them is very much up my alley!
I am sure that it is up to us to "create our memories" right now and here. Don't wait for precious moments to "find us" or "occur", but to be open minded to anything that can be treasured - from small nature treasures to short moments of joy. The really "big ones" should remain the exceptions... so we can still acknowledge them as what they really are: rare moments we will be remembering for the rest of our lives.
I like the tiny cogs and clock spinners on my small pocket watch inlay and the warm earth tone look of my tag. At some point I just followed my gut instinct and let the goodies I used on this tag lead the way ;)
I hope you like my first Tim-Tag of this year. Can't wait to see your takes ;)
Hugs and happy crafting,
