Tim Holtz April Tag: King

Here is my April tag for Tim Holtz

Of course I gave it my own twist,
but using Tim's creative ideas
and techniques.

If you have been following my blog,
you know we have a special day tomorrow
in The Netherlands: the inauguration
of the new King Willem-Alexander.
A very big happening for our country.

So I gave the tag an orange metallic look.
Yes orange is the main color you will see
tomorrow. Everyone will be dressed
in orange tshirts,coats, hats, shawl, jeans.
It will be a colorful day!

So my tag is titled:
Time to be the King

On top you see the clock and the hand of the
clock is pointing towards the "W"coin
on the ribbon. The "W" is the first letter
of the new King's name.

The lions on both sides are stamped on
transparant plastic,so I could flip the
lion on the other side. The are both staples
to the tag (covered by the clock.

The 2 is on of Tim's metal numbers
c0vered with bronze, rusty hinges and
mustered seed distress paint.

The word is stamped on kraft paper
and made into a tag.

The crown is out of grunge paper,
covered with the same distress paint as
the tag and added  a little mahogany.
On top a few sticky orange gemstones.

Underneath the crown I used a few
tiles from a scrabble game
painted with distress gold paint.

For all the technique instructions
on how to work with the distress paint,
take a look at Tim's blog:
King

Have a creative day!
