a random tim holtz tag

hello everyone 
i hope u all had a good Christmas and i hope u all got what u wished for. :) 

todays make is a Tim holtz tag. i decided to try out my new stamps and sizzix die and stamps sets that i recently bought myself. :)

for the tag i used the follwoing

rangers tags
tim holtz "little things" stamp set - the butterfly and the man. 

tim holtz "steam punk" stamp set - sentiment . 

tim holtz "butterfly melonge" stamp set - background stamp. 

the compass is from the tim holtz sizzix stamp and die set - compass blue print. 659883

the inks i used were 
distress inks ( picked raspberry and peacock feathers) i used the mini ones but you can use the larger ones if u wish.

the background stamp is stamped with memento ink - black ink. 

how i did it. 
1. stamped the background on the tag with memento black ink. 
2. stamped the image 2 twice. i die cutted the star shape out of the image (black) and then i stuck the waste from the black onto the pink and then i stuck the black star on top of the pink so that you can see both colours. 
3. i then stuck down the image on the tag. 
4. i stamped the sentiment onto a peice of white card and the inked the edges with peacock feathers ink. 
5 . the man and butter fly stamp i used pickled raspberry. 

hope you enjoy.
