Linda at Studio L3 posted her Grungy Monday challenge and this time it's for Birthday Cards for those who love Tim. And we all know I'm in that camp! Here's the link to Linda's post if you'd like to make your own card.
I decided to change things up a bit, since Tim is the King of Altered Tags and make a tag for his birthday. I started wtih Distress Stains in Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold and Stormy Sky to color the tag. Then I used a Stampers Anonymous collage stamp for the background. Using Tim's houses die, I cut one out then stamped the Happy Birthday girl (from Red Lead) and used Luminart in Playful Poppy and Mandarine Citrine to color her hat, shoes and cake. Grabbed a Journaling Ticket and distressed it. I used a Life Key and Journey muse token and painted them with Copper and Silver Paint Dabbers then highlighted the words with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Charcoal Black Acrylic Paint. Then I sanded them down a bit and used Vintage Photo Distress Ink on them and embossed them. A timepiece, steampunk gear and clock hand finish off this tag.
